The Port of Long Beach and neighboring Port of Los Angeles are on track to vaccinate over 900 seafarers against Covid-19.

The initiative has seen the California ports team up with the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services and the National Guard.

So far, 452 crewmembers on 27 ships visiting San Pedro Bay have voluntarily received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, while 477 more sailors aboard 29 ships are booked for vaccinations, according to officials.
