Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) is encouraging anyone who is currently eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in the county to apply for their shot today.
Increased vaccine supply from the state and federal governments means that CCHS currently has thousands of appointments at community clinics this week.
People currently eligible for appointments in Contra Costa include:
- Anyone who is 50 or older and lives or works in the county.
- Anyone who is 16 or older and has a high-risk health condition, disability or illness and lives or works in the county.
- Essential workers who live or work in Contra Costa, including healthcare personnel, emergency services workers, education and childcare workers, agriculture and food workers, transportation and logistics workers, and anyone who lives or works in a congregate living space in the county.
Contra Costa expects to increase vaccine eligibility to anyone who lives or works in the county and is 16 or older later this week. It's recommended to apply as soon as possible if you are currently eligible in order to beat the rush.
Fill out the Vaccine Appointment Request Form (recommended) or call 1-833-VAX-COCO (1-833-829-2626).
