Contra Costa Opens Vaccines to Everyone Starting March 30
UPDATE – Just announced, Contra Costa County opened vaccine eligibility to everyone* today, March 30, 2021. See below for details.
Thanks KRON4 for the newest update on Contra Costa’s vaccines.
Contra Costa County has just announced that it will expand vaccine eligibility this week to anyone who lives or works in the county and is 16 or older.
Increased vaccine supply from the state and federal governments means that CCHS currently has thousands of appointments at its community clinics this week. The county has received 84,500 total vaccine doses this week from the state and federal governments.
The appointments are available starting Tuesday, March 30, however, you won’t be able to book your appointment via the state’s MyTurn website until California expands statewide eligibility on April 15. For now, Contra Costa residents can register online at cchealth.org/coronavirus or by calling 1-833-829-2626.
Appointments are still required at CCHS vaccine clinics, and each patient must have their own appointment.
CCHS does anticipate a sharp rise in requests as over 300,000 residents are now eligible, and long delays are likely on the appointment request phone line. Anyone who is able to do so is encouraged to use the online request form instead of phoning – it will save you time.
