Contra Costa Health Services Opens Neighborhood COVID-19 Vaccination Site at Bay Point Family Health Center
Residents in East Contra Costa County have another option – close to home – to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
The Bay Point Family Health Center, at 215 Pacifica Ave. in Bay Point, began vaccinating Contra Costa residents aged 65 or older and healthcare workers on February 18 to increase local vaccine availability in some of the communities hardest hit by the pandemic.
The new clinic in Bay Point provides an easy-to-access option for residents with limited access to transportation and allows CCHS to be present where people need our services.
Appointments are required and can be booked online at coronavirus.cchealth.org/get-vaccinated or by calling 833-829-2626. Appointments are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and CCHS can provide as many as 200 vaccinations per day at the site.
You can make an appointment for yourself or help someone who is eligible. CCHS encourages everyone to reach out to their loved ones and neighbors and to help them make an appointment. Learn how at our Help Your Neighbor page.
We want everyone in our community to be safe and get back to hugging our families and friends and shaking hands with our neighbors. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine adds one more layer of protection for you, your family, and all of us.
Contra Costa Extends Vaccine Eligibility to Essential Workers
Teachers, grocery workers and other frontline essential workers who live in Contra Costa County can now get sign up to get vaccinated.
Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) updated its eligibility policy for COVID-19 vaccine to extend vaccination eligibility to residents who work in the education and childcare sector, food and agriculture workers, and emergency services workers as defined by California’s vaccination plan Phase 1B.
Residents in these groups, as well as county residents who are 65 years and older who have not yet been vaccinated, can sign up to access state and federal sites through MyTurn or by calling 1-833-422-4255.
Essential workers and residents 65 years and older can also request immunization appointments through CCHS and join the county waiting list for COVID-19 vaccine. However, due to a temporary reduction in vaccine supply from the state, all appointments at county sites are filled through the next two weeks at least.
Patients who need to cancel an existing appointment or who received a first dose of vaccine through CCHS and need to make a second-dose appointment should call 1-833-829-2626.
When more appointments do become available, CCHS will continue to prioritize county residents who are 65 or older as well as eligible essential workers, particularly those who live or work in the local communities most heavily affected by the pandemic.
CCHS continues to move forward with a workplace-based outreach effort to immunize essential workers in high-risk jobs in the county’s hardest-hit communities, including food and agriculture workers. Workers at sites selected for the program will be contacted by their employers.
