COVID-19 Vaccination Program – People Experiencing Homelessness in LA County Los Angeles County is home to over 65,000 people experiencing homelessness (PEH). Approximately 12,000 PEH live in 300+ interim housing (sheltered) settings across the county and another 48,000 live in unsheltered settings. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, California Department of Public Health, and LA County Department of Health Services (DHS) have prioritized vaccination in PEH living in shelters and crowded encampments. DHS Housing for Health has created multidisciplinary COVID Response Teams (CRTs) to engage a diverse group of community stakeholders, PEH, and homeless service agency workforce members to organize, engage, and coordinate opportunities for people experiencing homelessness to be offered pathways to testing and vaccination within in an equitable framework.

The Vaccination Program will consist of multidisciplinary teams (comprised of registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses or emergency medical technicians, community health workers, and programs and operational staff) to engage PEH, formerly PEH living in permanent supportive housing, and homeless service agency staff members in vaccine education and field-based vaccination clinics in shelters, encampments, and housing sites across the county. The Vaccination Program will partner with community organizations, community-based providers, and other community stakeholders – including people with lived experience of homelessness, public agencies, funders, etc. – to develop culturally relevant education, engagement, and vaccine distribution activities for sheltered and unsheltered PEH, ensuring that we serve those who are at greatest risk for COVID-19 infection, illness, and death.
