“I’m just really upset,” said Mary Delapena, who is waiting for her vaccine. “This is not right. You’ve got to find a different way to administer, even if it is through your insurance company. But this is absurd. Anyway, now I’m looking for somewhere to go to get my shot.”
The city of Los Angeles says all canceled appointments will automatically be rescheduled. The information will be disseminated through a text, email or phone call.
