Long Beach Now Offering Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine

The city of Long Beach began administering the new Novavax COVID-19 vaccine. The FDA issued an emergency use authorization for the vaccine last month. City public health officials hope this new option will encourage more Long Beach residents to roll up their sleeves.

“We want to be able to provide options for them and maybe this is the option that is going to convince them to get the vaccine,” said Kristina Gollinger with the Long Beach Health and Human Services Department.
