Frontline Essential Workers Now Eligible For Vaccine

Teachers, grocery workers and other frontline essential workers who live in Contra Costa County can now sign up to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Contra Costa Health Services has updated its eligibility policy, extending it to residents who work in the education and childcare sector, food and agriculture workers, and emergency services workers as defined by Phase 1B of California Department of Public Health's vaccination plan. 

You can review descriptions of the essential frontline industries to help determine if you are eligible to receive the vaccine.

Residents in these groups, as well as county residents who are 65 years and older who have not yet been vaccinated, can sign up to access state and federal sites or by calling 1-833-422-4255.

Essential workers and residents 65 years and older can also request immunization appointments through CCHS and join the county waiting list for COVID-19 vaccine. However, due to a temporary reduction in vaccine supply from the state, all appointments at county sites are filled through the next two weeks at least.

When more appointments do become available, CCHS will continue to prioritize county residents who are 65 or older as well as eligible essential workers, particularly those who live or work in the local communities most heavily affected by the pandemic.
