Vaccination Resources

  • Alameda County Planning Information and Resource for Upcoming COVID-19 Vaccines: Alameda County’s website was updated to include a Vaccine Notification Form, where County residents can register to be notified when a vaccine is available and receive information with details on location and timing. All responses will be kept confidential and will only be used for planning and outreach purposes. The County will not share individual-level information with anyone.

The staff at Ride-On Tri-City! Program are able to help residents 65+ make COVID vaccine appointments with Washington Hospital and Haller’s Pharmacy and help to coordinate rides to and from their appointments. Call 510-574-2053 for this assistance. If you are a homebound resident, you can book an appointment for a health worker to vaccinate you in your own home: call 510-280-4VAX

The pandemic has disproportionately impacted communities of color and has, also, accentuated a longstanding, systemic mistrust of healthcare and government among these same groups. While this remains a national problem, the City of Union City is taking an approach to address the issue collaboratively with community members. The City has launched a series of videos to help raise awareness about the vaccine and to build confidence in the vaccine, especially among Black and Latino communities. In the inaugural video series, Union City residents Amirh Johnson, a medical physicist, and Derrick Richardson, a biotechnology professional, share with the community why they plan to take the vaccine, why it is important that others do so, and why they trust and feel safe taking the vaccine. The video series also includes videos in Spanish, filmed with the executive director of Centro de Servicios, Jaime Jaramillo, and program manager of Youth and Family Services, Pedro Naranjo.

Watch the video series here:
