COVID-19 Vaccine Information for Staff

AUSD fully acknowledges the importance of employees getting vaccinated against COVID-19 and has worked hard to make sure they have the information they need to do so. Vaccination opportunities change periodically, but this page lists some of the places where employees can go to get their shots.

FEMA's mass vaccination site at the Oakland Coliseum continues to periodically open appointments for school personnel via the web site.  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.


We recommend that you bring your AUSD ID badge and a paycheck stub with you to your appointment. 

county sources

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.


In the meantime, the county's vaccination site at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton is open for educators. You need to get an appointment for this site through your healthcare provider.


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.
