3/4/2021 - City of Pasadena Vaccine Clinics
To: The Campus Community
From: Steve Atlee, Vaccine Working Group Chair and Deputy General Counsel
The City of Pasadena is offering over the next week a number of vaccine clinics for individuals who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as members of one of the county's approved prioritization phases. In Pasadena, this includes residents over the age of 65 and employees of all ages who are at risk of exposure through their work at a college or university.
To register for an appointment, please use one of the following scheduling links for Pasadena Public Health Department-run clinics:
- PPHD and Huntington Hospital Walk-Up Clinics (Pfizer):
- PPHD Drive-Thru Clinic at Pasadena City College (Moderna)
- Thursday, March 11: https://www.calvax.org/reg/9010296303
Please do not share these links with individuals who do not meet the eligibility criteria. The links are intended to support the distribution of vaccines to residents and employees in the City of Pasadena who are eligible to receive the vaccine right now.
Individuals are required to have an appointment to receive a vaccine. Individuals without an appointment will not be able to receive a vaccine regardless of eligibility status.
For individuals receiving their first vaccine dose through a PPHD-run clinic, PPHD will contact you directly to schedule a follow-up appointment for the second shot. This outreach will occur about one week before that dose is due.
Proof of Eligibility
All individuals will be asked to provide proof of eligibility at their vaccine appointment.
- Individuals 65 and older are required to have proof of age and proof of residency in the City of Pasadena.
- Individuals eligible by employment are required to have valid personal identification PLUS proof of employment (work ID or paystub) in a qualified sector, which includes higher education. You do not have to be a resident of Pasadena, as long as your employer is based in Pasadena.

We will continue to email the community with information and resources as we learn of new clinics and opportunities to access a vaccine.To ensure equitable access to this critical life-saving tool in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Caltech expects eligible members of the community seeking access to a vaccine to do so in accordance with all local and state public health guidelines and processes and in a responsible, fair, and accurate manner. Furthermore, Caltech's Human Resources is working closely with groups across campus to support employees' access to vaccine appointment systems. Employees in the community who are experiencing challenges in securing an appointment are encouraged to contact their manager or supervisor for guidance and support.
Caltech's Vaccine Working Group continues to plan for dedicated clinics for the campus community, both in a hospital setting and on campus. The Institute has been approved as a vaccine provider and is waiting, along with many other institutes of higher education, for an allocation of vaccines. Vaccine supply is scarce currently; that situation should improve as additional vaccines are approved, manufactured, and distributed.
