California Governor: Extension of Oakland Coliseum Vaccination Site

SACRAMENTO, CA (STL.News) Following through on his commitment to ensure vaccines continue to be administered at large-scale vaccination sites in Oakland and Los Angeles, Governor Gavin Newsom today announced that the state has reached an agreement with Alameda County and Contra Costa County to continue to operate the RingCentral Coliseum vaccination site.

“We are proud to continue operations at the RingCentral Coliseum site with our local and federal partners,” said Governor Newsom.  “I’d like to thank our partners for stepping up to support the Bay Area community — especially those hit hardest by this pandemic.”

Under the agreement announced today, the two county governments will enter into a unified management of the site along with the state. Personnel and equipment currently being utilized at the Oakland site will remain in place to provide vaccinations for the next four weeks.

The state will provide an allotment of half of the weekly vaccines for the site through the third party administrator while the remaining half will come from the partner counties.  The site is expected to deliver up to 6,000 vaccines per day.

“Alameda County is grateful for the continued partnership with Cal OES and we welcome our Contra Costa County partners,” said Keith Carson, President of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors.
