Dear Neighbors,

Thanks to you, we reached another milestone! More than 2 out of 3 Santa Clara County residents age 16 and older have received at least their first vaccine dose. The County is determined to continue robust outreach efforts to ensure that communities most impacted by COVID-19 have ready access to vaccines other resources.

This week, same-day appointments are available across Santa Clara County, including at Levi’s Stadium and Eastridge Mall (Aloha Roller Rink). The following County Health System vaccination sites are also accepting drop-ins for COVID-19 vaccines until Sunday, May 2nd:

  • Fairgrounds Expo Hall, 2542 Monterey Highway, Gate D, San Jose, CA 95111
    • Saturday 5/1 through Sunday 5/2, 8:30am-4:30pm
  • Overfelt High School, 1835 Cunningham Avenue, San Jose, CA 95122
    • Saturday, 5/1 from 10am-5pm
    • Sunday 5/2 from 10am-3pm

Additionally, a special vaccine event for our youth will be held on Saturday, May 1st at James Lick High School:

The County and its partners are also working to increase evening and weekend availability for appointments and drop-in clinics to ensure ready access for the entire community.

In other news, the County has determined that data on the race/ethnicity of most Latinos who received the COVID-19 vaccine from Kaiser Permanente was automatically being replaced with “other” or “non-Hispanic” when transferred into the California Immunization Registry (CAIR).  

In partnership with Kaiser, the County has corrected the race/ethnicity information for more than 22,000 Hispanic/Latino community members who have received at least one dose on the County’s Vaccination Dashboard.

Stay tuned for more next week.

Together in health,
County of Santa Clara
