“I’m 65 years old and I’m a frontline worker. So I’m next either way. I don’t want to be one of those cases that bring COVID home to my disabled daughter and my two grandsons, who I live with.”

Joseph Sausedo

Los Angeles

“No. I think the homeless and people over 65 should be equal when it comes to vaccinations. The homeless need to be vaccinated and seniors over 65 need to be vaccinated.”

Kamelah Thompson

“Yes. … A lot of people over 65 have underlying health conditions and their state of health is going to be more at jeopardy.”

Mark Junius

Los Angeles

Absolutely not. I believe that the people who are 65 or older are at risk because of the people on the streets. The people on the street … should be vaccinated first so they don’t infect other people.”
