Slow the Spread: Get Vaccinated and Boost Yourself for COVID-19

The risk of exposure and infection from COVID-19 continues as a number of Californians are not vaccinated or boosted.

The hard evidence continues to show that the vaccine prevents serious illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths. Public health officials are urging Californians to get vaccinated and boosted as soon as possible.

It is recommended that everyone over the age of 5 receives their first round of COVID-19 vaccines and their booster dose.

Find a vaccine near you by visiting myturn.ca.gov or calling 1-833-422-4255. The consent of a parent or legal guardian may be required for people under the age of 18 to receive a vaccine. Visit Vaccinate All 58 to learn more about safe and effective vaccines available to all Californians ages 5 and older.

Your actions save lives

Protect yourself, your family, your friends and your community by following these prevention measures:

  • Sign up for COVID-19 Policy Alerts: COVID-19 Policy Alerts provide up-to-date information on CDPH COVID-19 guidance and policy

    , including changes to orders, mandatory guidelines and more. Registrants will receive prompt email alerts regarding updated guidelines and policies available on our website, along with accompanying translations. Sign up for COVID-19 policy alert emails today.

  • Wear a mask when recommended or required: Under the guidance of California Masks, masks are highly recommended for all individuals in most indoor settings. Masks are needed for everyone in high transmission settings like emergency shelters, health care facilities, correctional facilities, homeless shelters and long-term care facilities. Local jurisdictions may have additional requirements beyond state requirements depending on local conditions.
  • Upgrade your mask: A good fit and good filtration are still the best way to get the most out of your mask. The best masks to prevent COVID-19 are the N95, KN95 and KF94. If you don’t have access to one of these masks, wear a surgical mask or a surgical mask with a cloth mask on top. If you choose a fabric mask, opt for one with three or more layers of fabric. Whatever type of mask you wear, check the fit by avoiding gaps above the nose or at the sides.
  • Isolation and quarantine advice: The CDPH updated its guidance on isolation and quarantine as of April 6, 2022. The CDPH no longer recommends quarantine for people exposed to COVID-19 and showing no symptoms. Additionally, the CDPH has added recommendations for workers in certain high-risk settings (health care facilities, long-term care facilities, and shelters, among others).

  • My vaccination record is an easy way to show vaccination status in places or businesses that require proof of vaccination. Visit myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov today to get your vaccination record.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

  • Travel tips: Delay your travel (domestic and international) until you are fully immunized. See the CDC’s full travel advice. If you do decide to travel, the state’s travel advisory recommends all travelers arriving in California test for COVID-19 within three to five days of arrival, regardless of their vaccination status.
  • Add your phone to the fight: Sign up for CA Notify COVID-19 exposure notifications. Additionally, people who test positive for COVID-19 — including those testing at home — are able to alert others to potential exposure more quickly and easily. Individuals can now initiate the notification process as soon as they are aware of their positive test result. For more information, please see the “Notify Others” page on CA Notify.

  • Answer the call or SMS if a contact tracer from the CA COVID team or your local health department attempts to connect.

  • Check with your local health department on local conditions. Local health jurisdictions may implement stricter protocols than state guidelines.
