Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is reminding residents that it is more important than ever to get their flu shots. If possible call your doctor, visit a pharmacy or use VaccineFinder.org to track down resources and make an appointment to get vaccinated. L.A. launched a pilot program with the USC School of Pharmacy to bring flu shots directly to more Angelenos across the city in the weeks ahead. Residents will be able to get their shots free of charge, with no appointments necessary. To learn more about the program or find a location, please visit Coronavirus.LACity.org/FluShot.
This year’s election is more important than ever, and our job is simple: cast a ballot. The last day to register to vote and receive a Vote by Mail ballot is October 19th. If you miss that deadline, you can register and vote in-person at any Vote Center up until November 3. And remember, there are three ways to cast your vote: (1) you can mail in your ballot, (2) place it in a drop box, or (3) show up in-person from October 24th through Election Day. Voting is our civic duty, and everyone should have their say. Even if you think you're registered to vote, double check your status and verify that your information is correct. To do that, and get more information on voting in Los Angeles, visit LAMayor.org/LAVotes.
L.A. ARE YOU READY TO BE COUNTED? The 2020 Census is quick and easy and safe, secure and confidential. Your response helps to direct billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities for schools, roads and other public services. Results from the 2020 Census will be used to determine the number of seats each state has in Congress and your political representation at all levels of government. The deadline is fast approaching to fill out the census. All Angelenos need to be counted and make our voices heard. Shape your future, complete the 2020 Census at www.my2020census.gov

Smoky days are degrading our air quality and the respiratory health of millions of people. Our hearts go out to those who have been displaced, lost a home, or loved one.
Many of you have asked how this impacts birds. Wildfires are posing a new stressor to birds who are already threatened by habitat loss, climate change, and pollution. Various species are on the move to escape the flames and migrate. However, many wild food sources and rest areas are scorched, leaving birds highly vulnerable. What can we do to help birds? During this crisis, we recommend taking two simple steps to help local and migrating birds stay clean and nourished: providing water and food. (Cont.’d on the TNC’s GREENSPACE resource page HERE)

Tarzana Neighborhood Council (TNC) is proud to announce that it has awarded more than $9,000.00 to organizations serving children and families in our community. This is in addition to the $15,000.00 that was recently awarded to local food pantries including ONEgeneration Senior Center, West Valley Food Pantry, and the Boys and Girls Club of the West Valley.
Mayor Eric Garcetti has issued an order requiring Angelenos to wear face coverings when they leave their homes and will be near other people. The order will aid the fight against COVID-19, as restrictions are gradually eased to allow more people to return to work and outdoor recreation.
