COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Phases

Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) has published an overview of COVD-19 vaccine distribution phases, in accordance with a federal and state framework. This timing is estimated and subject to change.

Because a limited amount of COVID-19 vaccine is available right now, the vaccine is being made available in phases to different populations based on risk factors. CCHS does not yet have a precise timeline for when the vaccine will be available to groups in different phases/tiers. It will take several months before the vaccines are widely available to the general public. 

The chart below outlines the order in which people will become eligible to get vaccinated based on criteria developed by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH)
