COVID-19 Vaccine Fact Sheets
California has developed a COVID-19 Vaccination Scientific Safety Review Workgroup to review FDA –approved vaccines. After the vaccine’s safety has been reviewed and approved by these health experts, the State is planning to distribute and administer vaccines as quickly as possible.
California’s distribution of COVID-19 vaccines will be guided by the following overarching principles:
- The vaccine meets safety requirements
- The vaccine is distributed and administered equitably. People with the highest risk of infection will get the vaccine first.
- Community stakeholders (at the State level) are brought in from the outset for transparency
A safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine will be one of the most important tools to end the COVID-19 pandemic. California will be transparent, careful, and above all, equitable in its vaccine distribution. The state will provide a COVID-19 vaccine to everyone in California who needs and requests vaccination as supplies are available.

Why we need a vaccine
Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 will be one of the best ways to protect yourself and everyone around you. If you are protected from getting COVID-19, you cannot pass the disease to others.
Because the supply of vaccine will be limited at first, doing other things to help stop the spread will be just as important as it is now. This means still wearing a facemask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, washing your hands a lot, and staying home if you are sick.
What you can do now
Continue to help slow the spread of COVID-19:
- Wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose
- Wash your hands often
- Stay 6 feet away from other people
- Stay home if you are sick
- Avoid large gatherings
You should also get a flu vaccine. Flu vaccines save lives and prevent more flu during the COVID-19 pandemic. People need to do everything they can to stay healthy and not overwhelm our health care system this fall and winter. To find where you can get a flu vaccine, visit VaccineFinder.
