News and Events
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 kp.org/covidvaccine 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.
As part of our commitment to protect our patients and staff, and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have implemented the following in our facilities:
In counties under public order, anyone entering our facilities must wear a mask. Masks are recommended for all persons entering our facilities in all other counties. If you arrive without a mask, we’ll provide one.
Anyone entering our facilities will encounter temperature checkpoints. If you are found to have an elevated temperature you will be asked additional questions regarding your visit and either escorted to your appointment or asked to contact your care provider.
In accordance with recent guidelines from the California Department of Public Health, we are limiting visitors in our facilities. Kaiser Permanente visitation policies are based on the state’s colored-tier system for COVID-19 activity for each county and are subject to change if a county tier status shifts.
Testing plays a major role in fighting COVID-19 — for your health, the health of our communities, and to help safely reopen businesses, schools, and more. As an important part of Kaiser Permanente’s ongoing commitment to our members and communities, we have recently expanded our COVID-19 testing capacity. Members can now self-schedule a COVID-19 test on kp.org through an e-visit. To learn more about COVID-19 testing, click here.
