Health Care Providers: How to become a vaccinating organizationWe encourage all Alameda County health care providers to enroll in CalVax, the State’s system for requesting COVID-19 vaccine. If you have already enrolled as a provider and have vaccinated your staff, please begin vaccinating your patients aged 65 and older.
Important things to know about CalVax:
- CalVax replaces the COVIDReadi system
- CalVax allows providers to enroll in the California COVID-19 Vaccination Program, order vaccines, update account information, and manage vaccine reporting tasks
- You will still need to register for CAIR2
- If you are already enrolled in COVIDReadi, you do not need to re-enroll in CalVax and your account has been transitioned
- You should have received an invite from firstname.lastname@example.org to reset their password.
- If you have not received an invite, email to email@example.com or call 833 502 1245, option 2.
- Once your CalVax application has been approved by the State, Alameda County will be able to approve your requests for vaccine.
- You will need a standard medical grade refrigerator or freezer to receive Moderna’s vaccine, similar to what you would use for influenza or shingles vaccines.
- You will be required to enroll in CAIR2, the updated California Immunization Registry for reporting patient immunizations.
- CalVax includes reminder tools for the second dose of vaccines.
- You will be able to request allocations of doses in multiples of 10.
- Vaccines will be delivered to your clinic weekly.

Provider Training and Educational Materials
The objective of this module is to provide healthcare providers with information about COVID-19 vaccine Emergency Use Authorization and safety, as well as general information about vaccine storage, handling, administration, and reporting.
The following materials include proven communication strategies and tips for effectively setting expectations and addressing questions from COVID-19 vaccine recipients.
Family caregivers are eligible if they provided care to a person of any age that has a disabling condition that increases risk for severe COVID-19 infection and require routine, hands-on care that cannot be delivered in a socially distanced manner. DDS and CDPH specifically call out the following conditions:
- Cerebral palsy
- Down Syndrome
- Specialized health care needs, including dependence upon ventilators, oxygen, and other technology
Eligible family members must get an Attestation letter from the Regional Center of The East Bay to or from a qualified provider that verifies both the condition of the family member who is being cared for and the caregiver’s status as a health care worker.
