Vaccine development and testing are proceeding rapidly in the U.S. and are beginning to receive vaccines approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency use and for distribution throughout the population, first in limited amounts to carefully selected high risk groups and later to more and more people until everyone has access to the vaccine in what is called a "phased approach" to vaccine distribution.
A COVID-19 vaccine is a very important tool to help end the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit https://covid19.ca.gov/vaccines/ for information on the State’s plan for distribution in California.
