Contra Costa Brings Mobile COVID-19 Vaccine Service to Businesses, Organizations

Businesses and community organizations in Contra Costa can now request visits from Contra Costa Health Services’ (CCHS) mobile COVID-19 vaccination van to workplaces, community centers, and other locations where five or more members of a group want to receive the vaccine.

The free mobile vaccination service begins Monday. Any business or organization can request a mobile vaccination clinic using an online form if they are in the county and CCHS will send a mobile health van to provide free vaccinations on-site within one week after completing the request.

“The state pandemic health orders that have affected businesses, public spaces, and community activities for more than a year are changing on June 15 – especially for people who are fully vaccinated,” said Dr. Ori Tzvieli, deputy health officer for Contra Costa County. “If you do not already have the best protection available against COVID-19, now is the time to get a vaccine. We will come to you.”

Clinics operate weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will only travel to locations within the county, though they will vaccinate anyone eligible regardless of where they live. There is no cap on the number of people who can be vaccinated during a visit.

California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy sunsets on June 15, eliminating the color-tiered system of health orders that curtailed business and community activities based on the levels of COVID-19 transmission data in each county.

The state will no longer require people who are fully vaccinated to wear face coverings except in certain settings, including public transit, schools, healthcare facilities and shelters though private businesses may enact their own COVID-19 safety policies. Visit the CCHS Beyond the Blueprint page for details.
