Update on the COVID-19 vaccine

As of 1/18/21, Kaiser Permanente has limited vaccine supply for:

  • Health care workers
  • Long-term care patients and staff
  • Emergency medical services

If you’re in one of these groups, go to to schedule a vaccination appointment.

We are reaching out directly to those over age 75 — If you are age 75 or older, you don’t need to call or email us regarding COVID-19 vaccinations until we have contacted you first. We’ll let you know by letter or email when we can schedule you. Since supplies are low, it’ll take time to offer everyone an appointment. Thank you for your patience.
