Specific employers in prioritized essential worker groups will be able to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine to their employees in 1b. CDPH is working directly with employers as vaccine becomes available; for example, first responders are already being vaccinated and others will begin soon. If you will receive your vaccine through your employer, you do not need to take any other action.


Many health care providers, including primary care providers, health clinics, hospitals can distribute vaccine. Providers are reaching out directly to schedule appointments with  existing patients, prioritizing those who are older with more underlying conditions.
