Ship crews arriving at the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are being offered COVID-19 vaccines, according to the Associated Press.

The port of Long Beach says more than 450 crewmembers from 27 ships have received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine and nearly 480 more sailors on 29 ships are booked for vaccinations.

The shots are administered without charge to international crews aboard ships calling on the San Pedro Bay. It’s a joint effort of the Port of Long Beach, the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services, along with the National Guard.
