LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KERO) — Dodger Stadium, one of the largest vaccination sites in the country, along with four others is being forced to close for two days because of a lack of doses.

Mayor Eric Garcetti said Los Angeles received 16,000 doses this week down from 90,000 the week before.

"All of the numbers and success we've had so far point to a simple fact. When vaccines do get Los Angeles we know how to administer them. We have a great infrastructure set up with amazing people. And we will give them to folks efficiently and safely. But the problem is we still aren't receiving enough doses soon enough," said Garcetti.

Mayor Garcetti said he hopes to re-open the vaccination sites by Tuesday or Wednesday. The city said Monday it was restricting appointments to people getting their second dose.
