Vaccination is one of the most important tools against the COVID-19 pandemic and the emergence of new strains. 23% of all Californians have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and the rollout is expanding to reach new populations. While Cedars-Sinai is still experiencing a shortage of doses, the state expects to have enough supplies to vaccinate most Californians by summer 2021. 

Here’s what you need to know this week.

State expands vaccination eligibility to individuals ages 16–64 with high-risk medical conditions 
Effective March 15, 2021, the state has expanded COVID-19 vaccination eligibility to include people ages 16–64 who have certain high-risk medical conditions or physical and behavioral disabilities. Resources for scheduling appointments include My Turn and Vaccine Finder. When you have scheduled your appointment, fill out this self-attestation form (PDF) and bring it with you to your appointment.

Scheduling appointments through My CS-Link
Cedars-Sinai continues to receive a limited supply of vaccine, but we are hopeful that new and more efficient methods of distribution in L.A. County will increase our capacity. Our patients who are invited to schedule through My CS-Link™ may do so as instructed, and those who are due to receive their second dose should keep their appointments as scheduled.

Maintaining pandemic safety protocols
Please also note that although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued new guidance for fully vaccinated individuals, all Cedars-Sinai patients and visitors must continue to maintain pandemic safety protocols in healthcare settings, regardless of whether or not they have been fully vaccinated.

As always, stay safe and continue to follow county and state guidelines: Wear a mask (or two), wash your hands thoroughly and often, and keep your distance from others—whether vaccinated or not.
