How Do I Become a COVID-19 Vaccine Provider for Children?

Providers with an active license in California and who possess and administer vaccines are eligible to enroll in the California COVID-19 Vaccination Program.

To receive State doses, local providers, medical groups, health systems, multi-county entities, pharmacies, and U.S. Health Resources & Services Administration community health centers will need to enroll in myCAvax. Your application will be reviewed and verified by the California Department of Public Health prior to approval. For assistance with this process, please contact the State’s COVID-19 Call Center:

Bookmark the State’s EZIZ Resources webpage for assistance: Please note that providers do not have to be registered with the Vaccines for Children Program in order to register with CalVax for provision of COVID-19 vaccine.

For providers that wish to offer COVID-19 vaccine but have been reluctant due to the large shipment size and/or limited time to be used, the OC Health Care Agency (HCA) is able to support these clinics with storage and pick-up in incremental amounts (click here for more information). Pfizer may be stored at -25°C to -15°C (-13°F to -5°F) for up to 2 weeks. It can be stored at refrigerator temperature 2°C to 8°C (36°F to 46°F) for 5 days. If you are interested in more information on this opportunity, please contact the HCA Immunization Assistance Program at

Federal payor sources are reimbursing for COVID-19 vaccine administration. For information on fee schedule rates and billing process, please visit California Department of Health Care Services Medi-Cal Reimbursement website:
