COVID-19 Vaccine Information for Staff

oakland coliseum vaccination site

FEMA's mass vaccination site at the Oakland Coliseum continues to periodically open appointments for school personnel via the web site.  As batches of appointments become available throughout the day, we are putting messages out to staff via email, text, and/or social media. The site allows you to make an appointment for both your first and second vaccination shot.


As of February 24, school personnel can also make appointments via the COVID-19 Hotline: 833-422-4255. The call center is open 7 days a week, 8:00 am - 8:00 pm.


As our HR department has not received verification letters from the county yet (see below) for the county vaccination sites,  we recommend that you bring your AUSD ID badge and a paycheck stub with you to your appointment.

As of February 8, Alameda County has begun its “Phase 1B” of COVID-19 vaccination distribution. That phase includes school site personnel, as well as residents who work in food and agriculture, who are 65 years or older, or who qualify as emergency personnel.


The Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD) created four priority categories for education workers, ranging from school site staff currently providing or supporting in-person instruction to staff working entirely remotely. The agency asked all districts to provide a prioritized list of employees/ AUSD sent its list in on February 8.


We are now waiting for the county to send us employment verification letters that staff can use to make an appointment to be vaccinated. 


In the meantime, the county's vaccination site at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton is open, but you need to get an appointment via your healthcare provider. Please check the website for eligibility criteria - currently it appears to be for people 65 and older who are members of either Sutter Health or Stanford Health Care-Valley Care.


You can also sign up for vaccinations via the Alameda County Resident Vaccine Notification site (choose the TK-12 occupation sector in the dropdown menu).


The  Alameda County Office of Education Vaccine web page also features up-to-date and accurate information. So, too, does the Alameda County Public Health Department's Vaccine web page.

other vaccination sources

We are aware that community members are also sharing tips about various sites, drug stores, and independent clinics that may have vaccinations or appointments. AUSD has no way of verifying this growing and intermittent list of options, but we encourage employees who can access appointments through some of these venues to do so if possible. If we receive accurate, verifiable information about such sources we will share them with staff.
