Weekly Vaccine Update

Last week, Alameda County reached a new milestone: 1 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered to county residents and over one-third of adults are fully vaccinated!

Help us reach another million doses by spreading the word to your friends, family members, and neighbors about getting their COVID-19 vaccines. Visit the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency YouTube channel for testimonials from community leaders to share with your networks! 

Protecting Yourself from COVID-19

Even after you are vaccinated, it is crucial to continue to practice COVID-19 safety precautions. Visit the Alameda County Public Health Department's COVID-19 Health & Safety page for information on how to stay safe.
