Update to Data Modeling Tool
Beginning the week of October 10th, California’s data modeling COVID-19 assessment tool, CalCAT will evolve from the “California COVID Assessment Tool” to the “California Communicable diseases Assessment Tool.” In addition to forecasts for COVID-19, the website will also display short-term forecasts and longer-term scenario modeling for influenza.
In line with the state’s SMARTER Plan, the expansion of CalCAT will help CDPH track and address additional disease outbreaks beyond COVID-19.
Slow the Spread: Get Vaccinated and Boosted for COVID-19
The risk for COVID-19 exposure and infection continues as a number of Californians remain unvaccinated and unboosted.
Real-world evidence continues to show that the vaccine prevents severe illness, hospitalization, and death. Public health officials urge Californians to get vaccinated and boosted as soon as they are eligible.
It is recommended that every individual six months of age and older receive their primary COVID-19 vaccine series and booster dose, if eligible.
Find a vaccine near you by visiting myturn.ca.gov or calling 1-833-422-4255. The consent of a parent or legal guardian may be needed for those under age 18 to receive a vaccination.
