What You Need to Know
A safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine will be one of the most important tools to end the COVID-19 pandemic. California is planning to distribute and administer vaccines as quickly as possible.
This will be done only after a vaccine's safety has been reviewed and approved by top health experts. Initial vaccine supply will be limited, and California is making sure that these first vaccines are distributed and administered equitably. The first vaccines will be provided to healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities.
It will take some time before the vaccine is available to everyone, and while experts learn more about the protection vaccines provide, it's important to keep using all the tools available to us to help stop the pandemic. This includes wearing masks, washing hands, staying 6 feet apart.
At first, the limited supplies of vaccines will go to frontline healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities. As the supply of vaccine increases, those with the highest risk of becoming infected and spreading COVID-19 will receive vaccines.
