Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) now encourages everyone who lives or works in the county age 16 or older to request an appointment to receive a COVID-16 vaccine. You can register for an appointment at:

Home | Coronavirus (cchealth.org)

or call 1-833-VAX-COCO (1-833-829-2626).

The county is expecting long delays on this phone line and encourages you to go to the above website instead.

In addition to vaccination through the county, those age 65 and older can also get vaccine appointments through the state website called My Turn.  https://myturn.ca.gov/

Appointments for those aged 16-64 are only available through CCHS and cannot be booked using the state’s MyTurn portal until the state announces vaccine eligibility to this age category.

Vaccinations should also be available at CVS  https://www.cvs.com/immunizations/covid-19-vaccine, Walgreens  https://www.walgreens.com/findcare/vaccination/covid-19, and RiteAid  https://www.riteaid.com/covid-19#covid-19-faqs, in addition to your health care provider.

Contra Costa Health Services, the City of Concord, and Kaiser Permanente have joined together to open a drive-through vaccination site that can accommodate as many as 15,000 patients weekly, beginning March 30 at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor (formerly Water World) in Concord.
