COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Expands Statewide Beginning March 15, 2021

From the Medical Board of California

Beginning March 15, 2021, healthcare providers may use their clinical judgment to vaccinate individuals age 16-64 who are deemed to be at high risk from COVID-19 as the direct result of certain conditions and settings, as specified in the California Department of Public Health’s Provider Bulletin:

  • Individuals with one or more severe health conditions
  • Individuals with developmental or other severe disabilities or illness
  • Individuals who live or work in a high risk congregate residential setting
  • Public transit workers

Healthcare providers should thoroughly read the California Department of Public Health’s Provider BulletinFact Sheet and COVID-19 Vaccine Allocation Guidelines. Providers are also encouraged to review the bulletin and guidelines regularly for updates. California’s COVID-19 vaccine website with additional information and resources is available here.

Individuals with the above conditions are strongly encouraged to seek vaccination with a primary health care provider or system, or in an alternate clinical setting. Additional ways individuals can find appointments are through pharmacies, local health departments, community pop-up clinics, online at MyTurn.ca.gov and by calling the COVID-19 hotline at (833)422-4255.
