LOS ANGELES — As the calendar approaches June 15 — the date businesses across California will be green-lit to fully reopen — encouragement for Californians to get vaccinated remains high. All people ages 12 and up can be vaccinated for free, regardless of immigration status, and those who have at least one dose by the state’s reopening will automatically be entered into a lottery drawing for a chance to win $1.5 million

Californians can go to myturn.ca.gov or call 833-422-4255 to sign up for an appointment and see which vaccines are being offered at each site. The three vaccines available in California are Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer, with only Pfizer authorized for minors 12 and up. 

Those who need help with transportation to a site or a home appointment for health reasons can indicate that need when scheduling via myturn.ca.gov or by phone and may be eligible for free transportation. In partnership with the White House, both Uber and Lyft are offering free or discounted rides to vaccination sites. 

Those opting not to schedule ahead can consult the California Department of Health’s list of clinics accepting walk-ins. Documentation with your name on it is required to get the vaccine. However, the documentation does not need to be government-issued. 

Californians can also go to the CDC’s VaccineFinder or check with their health care provider or local pharmacies to find available appointments. The California Department of Health has listed the following pharmacies as offering vaccines:

What to bring to your appointment

Pfizer is the only vaccine currently authorized for minors ages 12 to 18. Depending on the county, minors may need to have either a signed consent form or be accompanied by a legal guardian to get vaccinated, or both. In Los Angeles County, minors must bring a consent form signed by a parent or legal guardian and, if the minor is between ages 12 and 15, the responsible adult indicated in their consent form must be present. 

As of now, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are only authorized for those 18 and older.

Identification or proof of eligibility for vaccination varies between counties and vaccination sites, so those planning to get vaccinated should check with their vaccination site, county or appointment confirmation email to verify what they need to bring. Many places ask for name documentation or proof of age, but no place can ask for immigration status. Health insurance is not required to get vaccinated, but some will ask for it.

Those getting their second dose should bring their white vaccination card to their appointment.
