COVID-19 Vaccine Information
When you are eligible to receive doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, we encourage you to get them. Our position is based on the latest scientific data—which favor the vaccine as a safe and powerful way to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Schedule Your Appointment
Use one of the following options to schedule your vaccination, third dose, or booster appointment:
- Log in to your My CS-Link account
- Click on the "Visits" button in the top menu
- On the "Visits" screen, click on the "Schedule an Appointment" button
- Click on the "COVID-19 Vaccine Dose 1" button
- Visit the California Department of Public Health's My Turn website and follow the instructions
- Call 1-855-427-5465 and ask to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment
Please note that we cannot administer a second dose of a two-dose series if you received your first dose at another vaccination site. If you received your first dose at another vaccination site, please return to that site for your second dose.
If you received your COVID-19 vaccination at a location other than Cedars-Sinai, please bring your vaccination card to your next doctor’s appointment so we can update your vaccination record.
State and Local COVID-19 Vaccine Recommendations
Use this chart to determine if you are eligible for COVID-19 vaccine doses. At this time, vaccines are not approved for children under the age of 5.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued guidelines for booster doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech (Comirnaty), Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccines.
- Unlike the initial booster, the additional booster is an option, not a formal recommendation. If you are eligible but you aren't sure if you should receive a second booster, please consult your personal physician.
- Booster doses are available at multiple locations across Los Angeles. If you are eligible, we encourage you to visit the California Department of Public Health’s My Turn website to choose a date and location most convenient for you.
Doses for Immuno-compromised Patients
- The FDA and CDC have authorized additional doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines for some people with weakened immune systems.
- The additional dose is not a booster dose. The additional dose is meant to give immuno-compromised patients the same level of protection that initial doses give non-immuno-compromised patients. Boosters are meant to target variants and raise immunity in case previous vaccination wears off.
- Before attempting to make an appointment for an additional dose, review the information provided on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website or talk to you doctor or healthcare provider about your condition.
Patients Under the Age of 18
- A consent form is required for all patients under the age of 18.
- If you are 16 or 17 years old, a parent or legal guardian should accompany you to your appointment. If this is not possible, bring a signed copy of the consent form to your appointment.
- If you are under the age of 16, you must be accompanied by your parent or legal guardian or a responsible adult. If you are accompanied by a responsible adult, the consent form must name the responsible person and be signed by the parent or legal guardian. The responsible person must bring their photo ID.
- Examples of proof of age can be found on the LA County Department of Health's vaccine page, under item 3, "Required documentation."
