The Oakland Coliseum Opens Up As A Mass Vaccination Site Today!

Starting today, the Oakland Coliseum will become the largest mass vaccination sites in the state.

The site will administer 6,000 vaccinations a day, seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“That vaccine is not part of the state’s normal allocation. It’s above and beyond that. So, it won’t impact vaccine going to the counties toward other requirements,” said acting FEMA Administrator Bob Fenton.

With its own vaccine supply, the Coliseum site alone could administer more than 180,000 vaccinations a month. That means all of Alameda County could potentially be vaccinated in nine months.

Residents with priority for the site include front line workers, long-term care providers, people 65 and older, educators. Registration for appointments is available online at myturn.ca.gov.
