The Governor was joined today by California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly, community and local leaders who have supported vaccine equity efforts in the region and Government Operations Agency Secretary Yolanda Richardson, who has assisted the state's vaccine operations planning since January and was also vaccinated today.
"Getting vaccinated is a vital step we can take to protect ourselves, our loved ones and our community, and brings us that much closer to ending this pandemic," said Governor Newsom. "I am proud to receive the vaccine today as we open eligibility to more Californians while keeping our focus on making sure those in our hardest-hit communities are able to easily access this life-saving vaccine. While supplies are currently limited, our statewide network of providers is ready to meet the growing demand and we look forward to vaccine allocations dramatically increasing in the months ahead."

Come April 15, all Californians 16 and older will be eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Even with expanded vaccine supplies and eligibility, individuals may need to wait for an appointment. Most eligible residents can use My Turn to find and schedule available appointments, either by visiting MyTurn.ca.gov (now available in 12 languages) or calling 1-833-422-4255 (assistance available in 250+ languages).
The state expects to be allocated 2.4 million doses next week, an increase of 300,000 over this week, and more than 3 million doses per week in the second half of April. These are projections and may be changed by the federal government. About 7.2 million Californians are 50-64 years old, with a total of 2.8 million people in this group having received at least one dose. Of these, 1.2 million people are fully vaccinated.
"Three safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines are reaching more and more Californians, getting us closer to putting this pandemic behind us," said Director of the California Department of Public Health and State Public Health Officer Dr. Tomás Aragón. "It will take time to vaccinate all who are eligible, and as we do we must continue to wear face coverings, limit extended exposure to others indoors, and follow all of the best known practices to stop the spread of COVID-19. We also continue to encourage Californians to take the first available vaccine. The best vaccine is the one you can get quickly."
