COVID-19 Vaccination Information
Be Prepared When It’s Your Turn!
Below is information provided by the state of California regarding who is currently eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations as well as where and how to obtain the shots.
Where can I get vaccinated?
- Check the state's COVID-19 vaccine website for more information or call California's COVID-19 hotline at 833-422-4255.
- State vaccine hubs: Use the state's vaccine registration portal to make an appointment.
- Other pharmacies, health clinics and medical providers. Check your local health department's website or use the state's vaccine registration portal to find appointments at some clinics. Some CVS and Rite Aid locations are also offering vaccines. Use the state’s registration portal or contact your local health department to get an appointment at Rite Aid. Register for a CVS appointment online or by calling 800-746-7287.
- Federal mass vaccination sites at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum and California State University, Los Angeles. Use the state's vaccine registration portal to get an appointment.
- Vaccine supplies are limited everywhere and available only to those now eligible under each state’s phased plan. Most vaccine sites require you to schedule an appointment online or by phone. Appointments can be very hard to get, as available time slots are booked quickly, and you may experience long wait times on the phone. If a time slot is not available, you may be put on the site’s waiting list. Some people are signing up at multiple sites to increase chances of getting an appointment. Once you have a confirmed appointment, public health officials ask that you don’t schedule or confirm another with any other provider so that vaccine appointments stay open for others.
What should I consider bringing to my vaccination appointment?
Please check with your vaccination site to confirm required documentation. Some vaccination sites ask for proof of identity or eligibility.
Officials recommend that you bring the following:
- a driver’s license or other state-issued ID that shows your name, age and state residency,
- your health insurance card, if you have one. You will not be charged, but the vaccine provider may bill your insurer a fee for administering the vaccine, and,
- your work ID (USF One card) and a copy of your latest pay slip (can be printed from USFWorks) as proof that you work in the education sector.
