Physician practices (independent practitioners and groups with fewer than 200 physicians) can still apply for a practice support grant to cover expenses related to providing COVID-19 vaccines. Funded by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and administered by Physicians for a Healthy California (PHC), CalVaxGrant is offering $10,000 per office location for physician practices to support vaccination efforts.

To be eligible for funding, organizations must be registered with CAIR2, have an IIS ID, and have completed Section A of the myCAvax application. If you are not yet registered with CAIR2, click here to start the process. Once these steps have been completed, you may apply for a practice support grant at https://www.phcdocs.org/Programs/CalVaxGrant.

Need help with the myCAvax process?

Email myCAvaxInfo@cdph.ca.gov for one-on-one application support. Primary care practices (General Practice, General Medicine, Geriatrics, Adult Medicine, Pediatrics, OB/GYN, Internal Medicine, Family Practice) members can also email their practice and contact information to vaccinenetwork@cmadocs.org for help.

The practice support grants will help physicians and medical practices administer COVID-19 vaccines in their community, as well as reimburse for related expenses incurred since November 2020. Allowable expenses include staffing, training, technology, infrastructure, supplies/equipment and administrative overhead.

Organizations can apply to receive $10,000 for up to five vaccination sites for a total of $50,000. Additionally, small practice providers can receive an additional $1,000 per site (up to five sites for an additional $5,000) if their vaccination sites match high priority areas as noted by the CDPH.
