Weekly Vaccine Update

Over 1 million Alameda County residents are fully vaccinated! 

While this is an exciting milestone, COVID-19 is still spreading in our communities and many Alameda County residents remain unvaccinated. The vaccines are safe and provide the best protection against severe illness, hospitalization, and death due to COVID-19. 

Cases of COVID-19, including the highly transmissible Delta variant, continue to rise in Alameda County. Most new cases are in unvaccinated residents and the Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD) encourages all eligible, unvaccinated residents to schedule their COVID-19 vaccine appointments as soon as possible. 

Eligible, unvaccinated residents 12 years and older, and those who missed their second dose, should call 510-208-4VAX or register online to schedule an appointment. 

Testing for COVID-19 in Alameda County 

In partnership with community partners, ACPHD is operating free COVID-19 testing locations throughout the county. 

Testing is free and available to anyone with or without symptoms at all community testing sites in Alameda County. You will not be asked about immigration status and do not need insurance at any of these locations.

For more information and guidance on COVID-19 testing, visit ACPHD's Testing for COVID-19 page.
