Over 2 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Alameda County! 

The COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at protecting you against the COVID-19 virus (and known variants). The longer you are unvaccinated, the greater your risk of contracting COVID-19.

The Alameda County Points of Distribution (POD) at Fremont High School and Hayward Adult School will be closing in over the next two weeks.

ALL IN Alameda County’s Recipe4Health Receives NACo Award 

I am excited to share that ALL IN Alameda County’s Recipe4Health (formerly known as Food as Medicine) has received the 2021 National Association of Counties (NACo) Achievement Award for Health! 

Recipe4Health (R4H) is a program of ALL IN Alameda County, an innovative anti-poverty initiative that I founded in 2014 and currently chair.

R4H is an integrated healthcare model that combines healthy food prescriptions with group behavioral supports to prevent, treat, and reverse chronic diseases. R4H uses a racial equity lens to transform our health systems by addressing upstream social determinants of health to improve health outcomes. 

Congratulations to the R4H team and their community partners on receiving the 2021 NACo Achievement Award!
