Protesters carried signs reading “Covid is a Scam,” “End the Lockdown,” “99 percent survival rate,” and “No Vaccine.”
Access to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, called the nation’s largest mass vaccination site, was halted for an hour after a small group of protesters showed up to decry the immunization drive.
The entrance to the stadium, which has been serving as a mass vaccination site since mid-January, was sealed at around 2pm local time after a sparse crowd of protesters staged a rally near the gate.
Footage on social media shows several dozen protesters with signs reading “Covid is a Scam,” “End the Lockdown,” “99 percent survival rate,” and “No Vaccine.”
The Los Angeles Times reported that the decision to block people from driving inside the gate came from the Los Angeles Fire Department as a precaution.
