Sign up for MyTurn

We also encourage you to sign up for MyTurn.ca.gov to receive an alert when you are eligible for vaccine and allow you to make an appointment locally, as supply allows. Sign up at www.myturn.ca.gov or call 1-833-422-4255 to register. In the next few weeks, we expect MyTurn to start sending out texts or emails to eligible people when appointments open up. Until then, you can check back at the MyTurn page to see if there are appointments available. We are still piloting MyTurn so appointments are limited at this time.

Please stay informed as this is an evolving situation and continue to be patient as we meet this unprecedented challenge
