We track COVID-19 variants in California to control the spread of the disease.

Variants in California

California genetically sequences a sample of positive COVID-19 tests to determine their variant. Knowing what variants are circulating in California informs public health and clinical action.

This chart shows the sample of sequenced positive tests where the variant was identified. Sequencing can only be done at specialized labs. It generally occurs several days or more after a test is identified as positive for COVID-19. Not all positive COVID-19 tests are genetically sequenced.

  • % of sequenced
    specimens
  • Variant data is updated weekly. The chart has data on specimens collected through {CHART_LAST_DATE} and was updated on {CHART_PUBLISH_DATE}. The California Department of Public Health has more information and data about variants.

Unvaccinated and vaccinated data

Vaccines prevent serious illness, save lives, and reduce further spread of COVID-19. As more people are vaccinated, the virus is less likely to spread, mutate, and potentially become even more dangerous. Vaccines will help put an end to the pandemic.

  • From {BEGIN_IMPACT_DATE} to {END_IMPACT_DATE}, unvaccinated people were {RATE_RATIO} times more likely to get COVID-19 than fully vaccinated people.

Cases and deaths by ethnicity, gender, and age

The distribution of confirmed COVID-19 cases reveals significant disparities within California’s overall racial and ethnic demographics, with Latino and Native Hawaiian / Pacific Islander groups having a disproportionate number of cases relative to their population in the state. Additional COVID-19 race and ethnicity data is available.

  • Confirmed cases by race and ethnicity in California

Statewide vaccination data

This chart shows all vaccinations administered in California, by county of residence. This data is updated daily.

Overview of vaccine administration source data


Vaccination status by age, race and ethnicity, and Vaccine Equity Metric

These charts show our progress in vaccinating groups and communities with the most urgent need. You can view by age, race and ethnicity, or Vaccine Equity Metric (VEM), either statewide or by county. These charts are updated weekly on Wednesday.

These charts use the California Healthy Places Index (HPI), developed by the Public Health Alliance of Southern California, which explores local factors that predict life expectancy and compares community conditions across the state. The HPI quartiles are the total state population divided into 25% segments based on conditions that shape health, including housing, transportation, and education.

The VEM combines HPI with California Department of Public Health (CDPH)-derived scores. Zip codes range from less healthy community conditions in Quartile 1 to more healthy community conditions in Quartile 4.

Vaccinated Status by Group source data


Vaccinations by zip code

This map shows the share of the population that has received COVID-19 vaccine by zip code and the VEM quartiles.

The percentage of those who have received a partial or full series of COVID-19 vaccine out of the total eligible population in each zip code are indicated by gray shading. Darker shades of gray indicate a higher percentage. Lighter shades of gray indicate a lower percentage.

The VEM quartiles are identified by the colors of the circles at the center of each zip code.


Vaccinating equitably across groups

These charts show how California has distributed vaccines to date and over time by VEM, race and ethnicity, age, and gender. Providing this information is voluntary and not required for vaccination. These charts are updated weekly on Wednesday.

Vaccinations to date

This chart shows how doses have been prioritized across VEM quartiles, which align with community health conditions. Our vaccination goals in this area are so important that we tied California’s reopening to them.

  • Vaccinations by doses administered
  • Number of vaccine doses given in California
  • % of total and number of doses administered
  • Quartile {N}
  • Least healthy community conditions
  • Most healthy community conditions
  • Updated {PUBLISHED_DATE} with data from {LATEST_ADMINISTERED_DATE}.

Vaccinations over time

This graph shows our efforts over time to distribute equitably to different quartiles. You can see the progress made after policy and logistics changes in March 2021 and when 5-11 year-olds became eligible for vaccination in November 2021.

How California is addressing health inequity

COVID-19 has highlighted existing inequities in health. Many of these inequities are the result of structural racism. One form this takes is the unequal distribution of and access to health care resources.

Committed to a California for All, the state is identifying communities most impacted and directing resources to address COVID-19 health inequities. Reducing COVID-19 risk in all communities is good for everyone, and California is committed to making it part of our reopening plan.

State public health leaders cannot address COVID-19 health inequities alone. A healthy California for everyone requires partnership with the private sector, local government, and community partners at all levels.

The disparities in our diverse communities are severe

COVID-19 disproportionately affects California’s low income, Latino, Black, and Pacific Islander communities, as well as essential workers such as those in health care, grocery, and cleaning services.

Case and death rate source data

Note: This data is cumulative since the first COVID-19 case was reported in January 2020. Case rate is defined as cumulative COVID-19 cases per 100K population. Death rate is defined as cumulative COVID-19 deaths per 100K.

Reopening equitably

California took action to ensure equitable distribution of the vaccine. For example, we partnered with mobile clinics in local school districts and places of worship. We also provided free transportation to vaccine sites. We’re still working to provide access to vaccines in our hardest-hit communities.

COVID-19 impact by race and ethnicity

COVID-19 health equity metric

The health equity metric measures the positivity rate in the most disproportionately-impacted communities. These communities are identified in the Healthy Places Index, developed by the Public Health Alliance of Southern California, as census tracts that have less healthy community conditions such as low median income, education completeness, and health care access.

  • Test positivity
  • Statewide positivity
  • placeholderForDynamicLocation test positivity

Data completeness is critical to addressing inequity

We know a lot about the impact of COVID-19 on certain communities, but we can better invest our resources by increasing the collection of race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation and gender identity data. This data collection requires close cooperation with private sector partners, laboratories, and state and county officials. View resources on how to improve reporting on race and ethnicity and sexual orientation and gender identity.

  • Factors that increase risk of infection and severe illness
  • Californians in crowded housing or transportation, and with less access to paid leave and other worker protections, have a higher risk of infection of COVID-19. Social determinants of health, such as food insecurity, lack of health insurance, and housing instability can increase the risk of poor outcomes. These social determinants of health are often the result of structural racism.

Underlying health conditions

Existing health problems can increase the severity of COVID-19. Examples include heart conditions, obesity, kidney disease, and diabetes, all of which are more common in communities of color.

A history of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) increases risk for chronic health conditions including heart disease, obesity, kidney disease, and diabetes and may increase the risk for severe COVID-19 illness.

  • ACEs are experiences of abuse, neglect, and household challenges occurring by age 18 and are associated with long-term risk for poorer physical, mental, and behavioral health.
  • Exposure to prolonged ACEs, when experienced without protective buffering factors, can lead to changes to the biological stress response which can affect immune functioning (the toxic stress response).
  • Individuals with a history of ACEs may also be more sensitive to the effects of new stressors, such as those presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. See how to manage stress for health.
