Dear <<First Name>>, 

The recent rise in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County is a troubling and stark reminder that COVID-19 is still with us and poses risks to our health and recovery from the pandemic.

While I’m proud to have led efforts to fully vaccinate nearly 3,000 residents and workers of the 13th District, which contributed to Los Angeles County’s vaccination rate of 61%, this percentage is below what experts believe is necessary to prevent the spread of the virus.

With the availability of vaccines and abundance of evidence pointing to vaccine safety, there is no reason to avoid this life-saving measure. So, please do your part and get vaccinated. It’s never been easier:
  • Visit vaccinatelacounty.com to schedule an appointment.
  • If you know of someone who does not have internet access, or has a disability, they can call (833) 540-0473 between 8:00am and 8:30pm, seven days a week for assistance with appointments.
  • If you are a homebound individual in the 13th District or know a homebound individual who needs to get vaccinated, please contact our office at (213) 207-3015. We can help you schedule an appointment.
  • If you need to get tested for COVID-19, my office still provides FREE COVID-19 testing behind Echo Park’s Edendale Branch Library at 2044 Reservoir St, Los Angeles, CA 90026. You can schedule an appointment here
We’ve never been closer to the light at the end of the tunnel. You can help us get there. 

With kind regards, 

MITCH O'FARRELL

MAINTAINING OUR TREE CANOPY

HISTORIC FILIPINOTOWN - Our team is always at your service and ready to help you in your neighborhood. This past weekend, we partnered with StreetsLA’s Urban Forestry Division to trim 23 overgrown trees on Rockwood Street between Union and Belmont Avenues, enhancing public safety and strengthening our tree canopy. Thank you to StreetsLA and the local residents who worked with our office to make this happen.

AT YOUR SERVICE IN HISTORIC FILIPINOTOWN

HISTORIC FILIPINOTOWN - On Saturday, Councilmember O'Farrell hosted his 72nd Councilmember in Your Corner (CYC) - the first in-person CYC since the pandemic's onset. Thank you to the many volunteers, city departments and community organizations who joined us to beautify the neighborhood and bring critical services to peoples' doorsteps. 

BRINGING UP THE CREAM ON VIRGINIA AVE

EAST HOLLYWOOD - On Tuesday, Councilmember O'Farrell helped city crews from StreetsLA replace an old sidewalk along Virginia Avenue between Hobart Boulevard and Serrano Avenue. "Bringing up the cream" is a technique utilized by cement masons that involves a swiping motion - as seen in the photo -  over wet concrete to create a smooth surface, preserving its integrity.

SHAPE YOUR COMMUNITY'S REPRESENTATION

LOS ANGELES - Join the California Citizens Redistricting Commission this Thursday, July 15, at 4pm for a virtual hearing where you can inform the future boundaries of California's congressional, state senate and assembly, and Board of Equalization districts. Your participation is vital to the success of the commission and redistricting process.

GET VACCINATED FOR COVID-19
