Get the Vaccine

Last updated 4/12/2021

All people ages 16 and older who live or work in Contra Costa County are now are eligible to get vaccinated through Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS). People under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to their vaccine appointment, or have a parent/guardian we can contact by phone during the appointment. 
 

Callers to our COVID-19 vaccine appointment line may experience long waits due to high demand. We encourage anyone seeking a vaccine appointment from CCHS to use the online request form instead of waiting on hold if they can.

Please do not visit a clinic unless you have an appointment. CCHS has a process for providing leftover or unanticipated doses of vaccine to residents who have requested appointments. View the chart below for how to request an appointment

Healthcare providers who have extra doses left at the end of vaccination clinics should follow our guidance for minimizing waste of COVID-19 vaccine.
