[ARCHIVED] Residents Age 65+ Now Eligible for Vaccine

UPDATED (Jan. 15, 2021): 

In response to new guidelines from the state, Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) and other healthcare providers in the county are now offering safe, effective, no-cost COVID-19 vaccine to all residents who are 65 or older.  Schedule an appointment online here.

Vaccine eligibility is rapidly expanding in California, and Contra Costa is coordinating with the state and building capacity to fill thousands of new requests. If you feel more comfortable making your appointment by phone, you might consider waiting until next week when the County's new call center will be available. Please visit https://www.contracostahealth.org/ for updates.

Vaccine appointments are not first come, first served. Contra Costa follows state and federal guidelines for prioritizing immunization. That means someone in a higher-risk group, especially someone who is 75 or older, might receive an earlier appointment than a younger person, even if they requested their appointment later.

Contra Costa Health Services is hosting a press conference at 11 a.m. on Jan. 15, 2021 to share more information about the vaccination distribution plan. View it live or watch the recording through their YouTube page.
