Vaccines at participating CVS Pharmacy locations in California will be available to individuals meeting state criteria, which the state will confirm in advance of the rollout.


On or after Feb. 9, patients must register in advance at or through the CVS Pharmacy app, and people without online access can call CVS customer service: 800-746-7287.

Walk-in vaccinations without an appointment will not be provided.

The availability of COVID-19 vaccines in California is part of an initial 11 state rollout. It includes approximately 335 CVS Pharmacy locations across Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. Vaccines will eventually be available at CVS Pharmacy locations throughout the country, subject to product availability, with the capacity to administer 20 – 25 million shots per month.

In addition to making COVID-19 vaccines available in local pharmacy locations, CVS Health continues to make progress in its effort to vaccinate residents and staff at more than 15,000 long-term care facilities across California.

As of Feb. 1, CVS has administered over 117,000 vaccine doses in California, at 499 Skilled Nursing facilities, and are 78 percent through second doses. As of Jan. 11, they have worked with over 14,500 Assisted Living and Long Term Care facilities and have administered 60 percent of their first doses to 145,142 residents. Over the next seven days, another 3,000 residents across the state will receive their second dose.
