Sign-Ups For COVID Vaccination Appointments At Oakland Coliseum Site To Open Today

On Tuesday, February 16, 2021, the State of California, in partnership with the Biden Administration, will begin offering COVID vaccinations to eligible residents, with an emphasis on the most affected communities in Alameda County. The site will be able to administer up to 6,000 vaccines a day.

Beginning today, February 15, 2021, community members in any of the following groups can schedule appointments for vaccination at the Oakland Coliseum site:

Phase 1A:
healthcare workers
long term care residents, and
​Phase 1B:
Food/Agriculture-Education/Childcare
Emergency Services and
Individuals 65 and older

Community members are able to access appointment openings by visiting MyTurn or calling 1-833-422-4255.

Councilmember Treva Reid and I, are pleased that the state and federal government has moved quickly to answer the call to bring a mass vaccination site to Oakland. Along with our colleagues on the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority (“OACCA”), took action at their first meeting of the year on January 15, 2021, to approve the creation of a taskforce to make the Coliseum a large-scale vaccination site, passed a City of Oakland Resolution requesting for state and federal aid, and have worked with stakeholders, including the A’s and Alameda County Public Health to make the Coliseum site really available. The coliseum site is located within the highest concentration of communities of concern, who have been historically underserved and currently with highest COVID positive rates.

Whether or not you are yet eligible for a vaccine appointment, you can sign up now on the MyTurn site to be notified when you are eligible.

In addition, we are working with State and Federal partners to improve their equitable outreach to underserved communities, and to launch more mobile vaccination sites in partnership with local community based organizations.
