Contra Costa County residents who are 65 years old or older can now get safe, effective COVID-19 vaccine at no cost to them from Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS).

To request an appointment, eligible residents can use the online form, or call at 1-833-829-2626 which is available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily for residents who do not have internet access or are unable to use the online request form.

Contra Costa County is making steady progress toward its goal of administering 1 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine by July 4, and enough of the county’s highest-risk senior population (75 and older) have received vaccine to extend appointments to younger seniors.

County residents who are 65 or older and have already requested appointments do not need to make new requests – CCHS will contact you soon with information about scheduling your appointment.
