Get Notified When it is Your Turn to Get the COVID-19 Vaccine
Alameda County is currently working through Phase 1a and 1b of the State's vaccination framework. These phases include health care workers, residents over the age of 65, education and child care, emergency services and food and agriculture workers.  

Everyone in California will have an opportunity to get vaccinated against COVID-19. But vaccine supply is limited right now.

Sign up to be notified when it is your turn by filling out one of the following forms:
Get vaccinated at the Oakland Coliseum site and get a free ride home
Starting Tuesday, February 16, the Oakland Coliseum’s parking lot will become a mass vaccination site. Anyone who is eligible to be vaccinated can make an appointment through the State's MyTurn App: https://myturn.ca.gov/.

BART will have extra staff at the Coliseum station during operating hours to provide anyone who has received a vaccine a free $7 BART ticket after showing their vaccination card with a matching date. $7 is enough fare to get home to any station in the system, except SFO station.

    Help Eliminate Local Contracting Disparities
    Oakland businesses are encouraged to participate in a discussion and survey to identify how we can eliminate gender and racial disparities in the City's contracting process. This is a direct response to the 2017 Disparities Study, which highlighted the opportunity and monetary gaps that exist for diverse businesses within the City of Oakland.
