      Get vaccinated at a County-run vaccination site to be entered to win a pair of Los Angeles Lakers 2021-2022 season tickets.

      By News Desk

      This weekend, everyone 18 years and older getting their first vaccine will have a chance to enter for the Lakers 2021-22 Season Ticket Vaccination Sweepstakes to win a pair of season tickets for next season.

      With millions of residents still needing to get vaccinated, this is an exciting opportunity that allows an individual still not protected to get vaccinated and perhaps be the lucky person who gets to watch the Lakers pursue a championship.

      Nearly 4 million people in L.A. County have received two doses of COVID-19 vaccine (or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine). L.A. County Public Health has good information to understand the level of protection that fully vaccinated people have from becoming infected, getting sick, or dying from COVID-19.

      And the news from the analysis is very good: these numbers show the vaccine is working extraordinarily well to prevent infection, illness, and death in almost everyone vaccinated. This data is also shedding light on the need to gather more information on those whose immune systems are suppressed, to find out if they need to take additional precautions beyond the vaccine.

      Sensible masking and distancing requirements are still in effect in L.A. County and throughout California. It’s critical that as the County gets more people vaccinated in order to protect those who cannot yet get vaccinated from the virus and its dangerous variants by wearing masks at large indoor and outdoor events, in crowded outdoor spaces, at worksites, on public transportation, and at all retail and business establishments that are open to the public.
