CityHealth, a local COVID-19 testing company, is partnering with the City of Oakland to hold a free vaccination clinic for the Oakland community.
The vaccination clinic will be held on March 10, 2022, at Lodestar School (701 105th Ave., Oakland, CA 94603) in East Oakland from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., and then move to the West Oakland library (1801 Adeline Street, Oakland, CA 94607) in the afternoon from 2-6 p.m. This event offers free-of-charge vaccinations and booster shots from Johnson & Johnson, Modern, and Pfizer.
Oakland Vice Mayor Rebecca Kaplan, who proposed the Council directive to open public vaccination sites, stated, “I am so thankful to my Council colleagues for supporting the proposal for vaccination sites, and for everyone involved in getting these important free vaccination sites open. I strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated and boosted — to help reduce the risks of serious disease from COVID. New vaccination sites will increase public access to these important needs, and protect public health.”

The vaccination clinic will be held at Lodestar School in East Oakland (701 105th Ave., Oakland, CA 94603) from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., and then move to the West Oakland library (1801 Adeline Street, Oakland, CA 94607) from 2-6 p.m. This event is open to Oakland residents and surrounding community members.
