Vaccination Information for Healthcare Workers

Last updated 1/14/2021

Please see our vaccine distribution phases to find out who is currently eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccine. It will be some time before vaccine is available to the general population.

 

​If you are an eligible healthcare professional who lives or works in Contra Costa County, please use this online form to submit an appointment request through the County. After we review your request, we will contact you with further instructions on scheduling using the MyChart website. Only the healthcare professional who makes the appointment will be eligible to receive the vaccine. 

At this time, appointments can only be made online through MyChart but a dedicated vaccine appointment phone line is being established. There are currently limited appointments available. We encourage eligible people we have contacted to check MyChart every morning for newly available slots. Click here to view MyChart tip sheet.  

Healthcare workers who have coverage through Kaiser Permanente should schedule a vaccination appointment through Kaiser.
