Welcome

 
COVID 19 VACCINATION RESOURCE UPDATE!!
...as of APR 14, 2021
 
If you are still on the fence about getting a vaccine shot (or know of someone who is), the director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Francis Collins, appeared on CBS' Sunday Morning show on April 4th emphasizing how important it was for all of us to get vaccinated. For those that are still concerned, he recommended this web site to answer any questions you might have: https://getvaccineanswers.org/
 
 
Hope you are all healthy and well. As you have probably heard, the COVID vaccines have been opened up in California to those 50+ on April 1, and 16+ on April 15th. That means that several hundreds of thousands more folks in our area will be rushing to get appointments for the shots, and currently the vaccination centers are only accommodating those with appointments. Supplies are becoming limited and the supply may not meet the demand. So, our advice is to get your appointments and shots whenever/wherever you can, as there will soon be a huge rush to do so. There are new statistics out, based on world-wide science studies, that state 
if you have had both COVID vaccinations, the probability of you getting the virus is reduced by up to 90% assuming you follow the protocols of masking, washing your hands often and avoiding crowds. if you are a KP member, you can go to their web site for more info- https://mydoctor.kaiserpermanente.org/covid-19/covid-19-vaccine
 
There are several other ways to find a vaccine appointment, and at this point in time, the County recommends signing up everywhere you can, and after scheduling an appointment, canceling your requests elsewhere.
 
1. MyTurn
Register with the State of California at myturn.ca.gov to be notified when you are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.
 
2. Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS)
CCHS will immunize all eligible residents whether they have insurance or not. Vaccine supply is currently limited, and it may take several weeks to receive an appointment.
 
 
Eligible residents who have difficulty using the form or have no internet access can request an appointment by calling 1-833-829-2626.
 
3. Alameda County Health Care Services Agency - Public Health Department
Alameda County Residents Aged 65+ can make a drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination appointment at the Fairgrounds.
 
4. Your Healthcare Provider
Healthcare systems have different eligibility requirements for COVID-19 vaccinations, and many healthcare providers are directly contacting eligible patients to schedule vaccine appointments.
Information about local providers—including Contra Costa Regional Medical Center & Health Centers, John Muir Health, Kaiser Permanente, La Clinica, Lifelong Medical, and Sutter Health—can be found by visiting the CCHS Vaccine page and scrolling down.
 
5. Partner Sites
Pharmacies and other providers have different eligibility requirements for COVID-19 vaccinations. Information about each of these providers can be found by visiting the CCHS Vaccine page and scrolling down. To request an appointment, visit the links below.
