VACCINE INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON COUNTY WEBSITE

Who is Eligible Now? Vaccine Eligibility

Vaccinations Now Available to Those 16+

Beginning on Tuesday, March 30, 2021, Contra Costa Health Services has announced that COVID-19 vaccines will be available to anyone who is 16 years or older who lives or works in the county, regardless of whether they have an underlying health condition.  

The continued expansion of eligibility comes as Contra Costa County has received additional vaccine supplies from the federal government, in addition to what it already receives from the State of California.  

 According to Contra Costa Health Services, appointments for people age 16+ are only available through CCHS and can’t be booked using the State’s MyTurn portal at this time. Register by calling 1-833-829-2626 or online: bit.ly/cchsvax. It may take several days to get an appointment and long delays are likely on the appointment request phone line. We ask everyone’s patience as we work to get the appointments made.

Contra Costa Health Services has created a new web page that describes the COVID-19 vaccine and the plans for how it will be distributed.  The site can be found at https://www.coronavirus.cchealth.org/vaccine

Vaccine Appointment Hotline 

 The number for the line is 1-833-VAX-COCO (1-833-829-2926). The phone line is intended to assist those who are unable to schedule vaccine appointments online. The phone line is available Mon-Fri 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. Those eligible for the vaccine are encouraged to continue using the online form and only use the phone line if they do not have access to the internet or are having difficulty with the form.

Who is Eligible Now? Vaccine Eligibility

The State of California has launched a pilot program called MyTurn that allows residents to sign up to be notified when they are eligible for a vaccine, and to schedule an appointment when they become eligible.
