LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Former Lakers star Earvin “Magic” Johnson, former talk-show host Arsenio Hall and actor Danny Trejo each received one of the approved COVID-19 vaccines Wednesday while encouraging Angelenos to join in getting their shots.
“I am so happy to be here with Danny and my 40-year friend Arsenio Hall to take this vaccination because it’s so important.
I’ve been doing everything the right way, wearing my mask, cleaning my hands all the time, I’ve been taking a COVID-19 test seems like every two weeks,” said Johnson, who received the Pfizer vaccine.
“The most important thing now is to get this vaccine and to ease my mind … I’ve done all my research and homework and I consulted my doctors and they said this what I should be doing,” he added.
The trio received their shots from Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Ralph Terrazas at the city-run USC vaccination site, encouraging people in South Los Angeles specifically to get vaccinated.
“Most importantly, it’s right here in South L.A.
… as you probably all know, recent data has shown that 4% of South L.A.
residents have been vaccinated as of mid-February, and yet 18% or 16% of the COVID-19 patients were coming from this area,” USC President Carol Folt said.
“I’m so proud to take this shot, and I know there’s a lot, even in my neighborhood, there’s a lot of tough guys that are talking about `you don’t need no shot’ but you know what, maybe your family does,” said Trejo, who received the Moderna vaccine.
“If you don’t take it for yourself, take if for your family, because I want to keep my kids safe.”
Hall, who received the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, said the health precaution should transcend politics.
“By the way, Donald J.
Trump and Barack Obama both got this, they don’t agree on nothing but they’ve both got the vaccine,” Hall said.
“I trust our scientists a lot more than I trust my mother’s cooking.
Thank you Earvin for inviting me to do it.
We got to do this because we got to get back to normal and this is the only path to it.”
The USC site, located in a seven-story parking garage on the edge of Exposition Park, will be capable of vaccinating up to 5,000 people per day.
It was specifically placed near the Expo Park Metro station for easy access, Mayor Eric Garcetti said.
It provides both drive-up and walk-up patients.
Appointments are required and can be made here.

After watching episode 3 of "The Masked Singer" we now know the identity of the Raccoon: actor Danny Trejo, who plays Machete
Do you agree?
Part of the appeal of “The Masked Singer” is trying to figure out which famous faces are hidden beneath those masks.
We nailed the identities of the first contestant from Group A who was sent packing at the end of the March 10 episode: Snail (Kermit the Frog).
The rest of the contenders in Group A returned to compete again on March 24 disguised as the Porcupine, Raccoon, Russian Dolls and Seashell.
Of these famous five folks, we are most certain about who is hiding inside the Raccoon costume.
On the season 5 premiere, he rocked the house with his cover of “Wild Thing” by The Troggs.
We’ve watched that performance and his clues video over and over and think we’ve nailed his name.
Keep reading for all “The Masked Singer” spoilers, including the identity of Raccoon who is definitely not someone who makes a living as a singer.
But that raspy voice was a giveaway.
We think that the Raccoon is actor Danny Trejo, best-known for playing the Machete in the “Spy Kids” franchise and several stand-alone movies.
Don’t believe us? Well consider the way that Danny’s bio fits in with the clues offered by Raccoon.

The costume choice of the Raccoon is revealing in itself with the orange vest reminiscent of the trademark look of the Machete.
And the Raccoon’s hat is adorned with a California licence plate; Danny was born in Echo Park in Los Angeles on May 16, 1944 (we saw the Raccoon in a cave that had 44 hash marks on the wall).
As Jenny McCarthy observed, the Raccoon has a bit of a “grandpa walk.” Trejo is soon to be 77.
Raccoon readily admits that before finding his happy ending he had to go through hell.
That was also referenced in the video when we saw the Raccoon behind bars.
Trejo spent much of his teen years and twenties in and out of detention.
SEE ‘The Masked Singer’ spoilers: Who is Porcupine?
The Raccoon describes himself as a monster and says that “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” is his favorite story.
Trejo has often said that he thinks his physical appearance played a part in him pursuing a life of crime.
The Raccoon revealed that at his lowest point in prison, when he was in solitary confinement, he made a promise to God that if he got a second chance in life he’d only do good.
And Danny is fulfilling that promise to this day.
Trejo is trained as a counselor.
That shot of a donut all aglow made us think of Trejo’s Coffee & Donuts in LA.
And the one of the can of cat food put us in mind of the character that Trejo gave voice to in the 2011 animated film “Top Cat.”
SEE ‘The Masked Singer’ spoilers: Who are the Russian Dolls
Cluedle-Doo’s told us that, “Raccoon is known for being sharp.” Trejo came to fame in films directed by his second cousin Robert Rodriguez.
In many of these he has played characters with names associated with knives, including Machete; Navajas (“switchblade” in Spanish); and Razor Charlie.
We will only find out if we are right that Raccoon is Danny Trejo when he is unmasked.
That only happens when he loses a vote or wins the show.
