Required Training for Providers in the California COVID-19 Vaccination Program

Providers, key practice staff, and others managing, handling, or administering COVID-19 vaccines must complete the required training to meet federal and state requirements. Anyone logging into the myCAvax (formally CalVax) provider vaccine management system must complete the training in myCAvax —completions are tracked through enrollment.

Vaccinators who do not plan on enrolling in the program to potentially receive vaccine doses and will only administer vaccine may review the trainings and resources recommended for new vaccinators below.
