COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ

If you have questions regarding your specific circumstances, please talk to your doctor.

When will the vaccine be available to the public?

    • Most of California is currently in Phase 1a of the vaccine distribution. Some counties have moved to Phase 1b. Please contact your doctor or your county public health department for more information.

Can children get the vaccine?

      • At this time, the COVID-19 vaccines are only approved for individuals 16 years of age and older.

Can women who are pregnant or breastfeeding get the vaccine?

      • Please talk to your doctor about the COVID-19 vaccine and when you should get it. Pregnancy or breast-feeding does not exclude an individual from receiving the vaccine. 

Do I need to pay to get the COVID-19 vaccine?

      • No. Everyone will be able to get the vaccine at no cost.

How many shots are needed?

      • As many as two shots may be required. Please make sure you get clear follow-up instructions at the time you receive the shot.

When it's available, where can I get the vaccine?

      • At this time, we do not have locations for where you can receive the vaccine. When that information becomes available, we will be posting it on our website.

Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe?

      • The COVID-19 vaccine has gone through rigorous testing standards that have been reviewed and approved by the FDA, CDC, and the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup for the approved uses.

If I had COVID-19, do I still need to get the vaccine?

      • It is not yet clear how long a person who has had COVID-19 is immune to the coronavirus. If the immunity is not long lasting, a vaccination may be recommended to protect you from getting COVID-19 again.
