People can now get a COVID vaccine at all county-run vaccination sites with or without an appointment.
Vaccination is available to everyone ages 16 and older regardless of whether they live in Contra Costa County or not. People can also choose whether they want a one-dose or two-dose vaccine at county sites.
"We are doing everything we can to remove barriers and make it as convenient and easy as possible for people to get vaccinated," said Supervisor Diane Burgis, chair of the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors. "Vaccines don't just protect your health – they give peace of mind and let us be with our friend and families without worrying."
Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) runs more than a dozen vaccination clinic sites across the county, including many with convenient weekend and evening hours. People who prefer to book an appointment in advance can do so at covidvaccine.cchealth.org or call 833-829-2626.
More than 70% of the eligible population in Contra Costa County has gotten at least one dose of vaccine – already surpassing President Biden's July 4 vaccination goal for the country.
"We've made great progress, but we still have more work to do. I strongly urge everyone to get vaccinated so we can finish the job and end the pandemic," Burgis said
