Contra Costa Health Services Opens Neighborhood COVID-19 Vaccination Site at Bay Point Family Health Center

Residents in East Contra Costa County have another option – close to home – to get a COVID-19 vaccination.

The Bay Point Family Health Center, at 215 Pacifica Ave. in Bay Point, began vaccinating Contra Costa residents aged 65 or older and healthcare workers on February 18 to increase local vaccine availability in some of the communities hardest hit by the pandemic.

The new clinic in Bay Point provides an easy-to-access option for residents with limited access to transportation and allows CCHS to be present where people need our services.

Appointments are required and can be booked online at coronavirus.cchealth.org/get-vaccinated or by calling 833-829-2626. Appointments are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and CCHS can provide as many as 200 vaccinations per day at the site.

You can make an appointment for yourself or help someone who is eligible. CCHS encourages everyone to reach out to their loved ones and neighbors and to help them make an appointment. Learn how at our Help Your Neighbor page.

We want everyone in our community to be safe and get back to hugging our families and friends and shaking hands with our neighbors. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine adds one more layer of protection for you, your family, and all of us.

A New Administration Brings New Hope

The ascent of Kamala Harris, the first woman of Black and South Asian descent, to the position of Vice President of the United States of America, is historic, to say the least. Also amazing for those of us in this community is the fact that we feel a kinship with her because she grew up “next door”, in Oakland, CA. And some of us can actually say that we have crossed her path, literally! As we all watched Kamala Harris recite the oath of office for the Vice Presidency during the inauguration, we, as Black Americans took pride in the fact that we played a significant part in the election process, that ensured her path to the White House. And yes, we were all standing with her!

Vice President Kamala Harris and this administration has challenges to overcome that no other administration has been faced with. However, we have faith that with her unfettered abilities, that she, will be instrumental in healing, rebuilding and evolving of this great nation. That she, along with the many others in President Biden’s new administration will move our country towards even more greatness!
We also want to acknowledge our newly elected President, Joseph Biden, because without his faith, she would not be there at this great time of need.
Best wishes and God bless!
