CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) — Contra Costa County will begin offering walk-in COVID-19 vaccination services in the coming weeks.
Those age 16 and up who live or work in the county will be eligible to receive a vaccine at one of several pop-up sites.
County officials say about 500-700 vaccinations will be given at each site per day.
The walk-in clinics will be located in areas hardest hit by the pandemic, like Richmond, the Monument Corridor in Concord and parts of East County.
“Places in eastern Contra Costa County, like Antioch, have among the highest COVID case rates but some of the lowest vaccination rates,” said Chair of the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors Diane Burgis, whose district includes the Antioch Community Center. “That’s why having easily accessible walk-in vaccine clinics like these are so important.”
Below are the dates and locations for the walk-in clinics, which are all open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.:
April 15 – April 25
- Veterans Memorial Hall: 968 23rd St., Richmond
- Antioch Community Center: 4703 Lone Tree Way, Antioch
