[ – March 26, 2021] California is opening the COVID-19 vaccine to all adults, but the timing of scheduling an appointment remains in flux.

Residents who are at least 50 years old can get vaccines starting April 1, and all Californians 16 and older will be eligible beginning April 15.


The California Department of Public Health said Thursday that residents could go through their doctor’s office to begin booking their shots, so long as the appointments are on or after the day they become eligible, April 1 or 15.

Depending on eligibility, residents will be able to reserve an appointment through the state’s My Turn scheduling site on April 1, April 15 or later.

Eventually, vaccines should be available through pharmacies, community clinics and at government-run centers.
