Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts is doing his part to encourage the people of Los Angeles to get their COVID-19 vaccine. The team was originally pretty quiet on vaccines, citing personal health decisions as a reason that players did not initially discuss getting theirs.
But Betts was out in the community this week thanking front-line workers and pushing for the vaccine. He made an appearance in Downtown Los Angeles at a Ralphs store to encourage people to get their shots.

Up Next for the Dodgers
The Dodgers play one more game against the Giants tonight to wrap up their mini 2-game series. Walker Buehler gets the ball for Los Angeles going up against potential Cy Young candidate Kevin Gausman.
If the Dodgers are able to pull out a win, it would put them within a game and a half of San Francisco for first place in the west.
