LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KERO) — The City of Los Angeles has announced Dodger stadium will no longer be a testing site. By the end of this week, the stadium will be converted into a mass vaccination center.

One board of supervisors said, "in this moment of darkness where cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are skyrocketing, this bold step of offering both COVID-19 testing and vaccines in the heart of Los Angeles reflects the dual nature of this moment. It is dark but simultaneously hopeful."

According to LA County Public Health, the LA Fire Department and Dodger Stadium site will be able to vaccinate up to 12,000 people per day when it is fully up and running.
