Information on COVID-19 Vaccination
Previous San Francisco-specific guidance on obtaining consent for minors to receive COVID-19 vaccine has been rescinded.
San Francisco now relies on statewide guidance from the California Department of Public Health, which can be accessed on the CDPH website

Only currently approved myCAvax providers can administer COVID-19 vaccine.
The state’s enrollment system for providers administering COVID-19 vaccine is called myCAvax. Only approved providers can be allocated vaccine. All providers interested in offering vaccine in their offices (including but not limited to pediatric, small, and independent practices) are encouraged to complete a myCAvax application at https://mycavax.cdph.ca.gov/s/
Approved myCAvax providers can submit vaccine requests by vaccine product. Currently all the available vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson) can be stored at refrigerated temperatures. The use of regular or ultra-low-temperature freezers for storage is no longer necessary.
San Francisco providers with questions about the myCAvax process may contact firstname.lastname@example.org
