Contra Costa County COVID vaccination sites closing in March
CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, CA (Mar. 8, 2023) — After three years, the state and county-level emergency public health declarations regarding COVID-19 ended on Feb. 28. The federal emergency declaration ends on May 11.
While official health emergencies are going away, Contra Costa Health (CCH) recognizes that COVID-19 is not. CCH will still be addressing COVID-19 as part of its regular departmental operations in the future with a focus on equity.
The state test-to-treat sites in Pleasant Hill and Antioch have closed. CCH continues to offer free home test kits to anyone who needs them through the online form or the call center, 1-833-829-2626.
On March 31, the three county-run mass vaccination sites in Antioch, Concord, and Richmond will close. People can still get vaccines through their regular healthcare providers and local pharmacies. The uninsured and Medi-cal patients will still be able to access free COVID-19 vaccines at CCH’s health centers, pop-up vaccine clinics, and CCH’s weekly immunization-only clinics, which will soon be offering evening hours to provide better access to working people.
