Contra Costa Patients Are Urged Patience for Appointments
People who live or work in Contra Costa County and are 16 years or older are now eligible to receive the COVID vaccination. Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) will immunize all eligible people whether they have insurance or not.
Currently, appointments are required at all sites. Due to the high volume of appointment requests, county residents are urged to be persistent with appointment scheduling. CCHS plans to add walk-in service at some sites when possible.
CCHS will continue to prioritize giving appointments to people who live in communities that are disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Other vaccine providers may have different eligibility requirements.
Eligible residents who have difficulty using the form or have no Internet access can request an appointment by calling 1-833-829-2626.
Starting April 15, all Californians 16 and older will be able to sign up for COVID-19 vaccinations. Those 50 and older are now eligible statewide, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced last week.
