Vaccine Information

A COVID-19 vaccine is one of the most important tools to end the COVID-19 pandemic. The State will distribute a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine fairly to everyone in California who wants it. Visit California’s “Vaccinate All 58” webpage for the answers to your vaccination questions.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can the vaccine cause me to get COVID-19?
The COVID-19 vaccination can’t cause COVID-19. The goal of the vaccines is to teach our immune systems how to fight the virus that causes COVID-19. Visit this CDC site to further understanding how COVID-19 Vaccines Work.
Should I get a vaccine if I had COVID-19?
People are advised to get a COVID-19 vaccine even if they have been sick with COVID-19 before. This is due to the severe health risks associated with COVID-19 and the fact that reinfection with COVID-19 is possible. At this time, it is not known how long someone is protected from getting sick again, after recovering from COVID-19. We won’t know how long immunity produced by vaccination lasts until more data can be determined on how well it works.
