Follow Alameda County Health Care Services Agency to receive the latest information on vaccine distribution in our County. Currently, Alameda County is continuing to vaccinate health care workers eligible for Phase 1a and anticipates starting Phase 1b in the coming weeks.

To receive a notification of when vaccine might be available for you, complete one of the applicable forms available here: https://covid-19.acgov.org/vaccines

Who can get vaccinated in Alameda County right now?

Yesterday the state announced it is prioritizing individuals 65 and older to receive the vaccine as demand subsides among health care workers, and those in Phase 1a – health care workers and long-term care residents – remain the highest priority to receive vaccines.

As demand for the vaccine continues to exceed supply, Alameda County is balancing shifting priorities. We are continuing to vaccinate health care workers eligible for Phase 1a and anticipate starting Phase 1b in the coming weeks. We have more hospitals and health care facilities than surrounding Bay Area counties, and our estimated population for Phase 1a exceeds 145,000 people.

Phase 1b will expand vaccine eligibility to large groups of people, and we are working across multiple partners and sectors to update and prepare for mass vaccination scenarios. We are committed to safe and equitable vaccine distribution, and our strategy is to make vaccine readily and easily available through County-administered points of dispensing (PODs) and partnership with health care systems and community clinics/organizations.

For those who are age 65 and older and are interested in getting vaccinated, we encourage you to reach out to your health care provider to see if they have vaccine available. We anticipate being able to start vaccinating this group in the coming weeks.

Everyone—including those who have been vaccinated—should continue to stay home as much as possible, wear a face covering, and practice physical distancing.

Vaccination brings great promise, and we appreciate the enthusiasm and interest among many residents and employers. When there is enough vaccine to expand vaccination options, Alameda County will share that information widely, along with information on when and how eligible groups can get vaccinated.

01/07/2021

January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. The Federal Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2013 (TVPA) defines sex trafficking as follows:

The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, advertising, or obtaining of a person for the purposes of a commercial sex act, in which the commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age.
---------------------------------
Exploiters manipulate the needs that vulnerable young people have for love, stability, food, clothing, money, and shelter. They use coercive tactics to bond their victims to them, often positioning themselves as romantic partners or caregivers. Any minors exploited through commercial sex, regardless of their perceived knowledge of or agreement to such acts, are victims of sex trafficking.

While sex trafficking happen everywhere and can happen to anyone, there are populations of youth at higher risk, including:

• Adolescents who have been abused, neglected, or exposed to family violence or addiction;
• Youth involved in the child welfare system;
• “Runaway” and homeless youth;
• LGBTQ+ youth.

Victims are often invisible because we do not recognize the indicators that trafficking is occurring. Join the fight to end human trafficking by raising awareness of this heinous crime in our community. On January 11th, wear blue and post on your social media with #wearblueday to raise awareness. Visit the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's website for the Blue Campaign, One Voice. One Mission. End Human Trafficking.® Identifying the signs of human trafficking and reporting a tip may save a life: https://www.dhs.gov/blue-campaign#

If you suspect that a child is being sexually trafficked, or something of value to the child (food, shelter, money) has been exchanged for sexual acts, and the child's parent or guardian failed to, or was unable to, protect the child, this can be reported to the Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Hotline. For Alameda County, the 24-hour hotline is (510) 259-1800.

Important information from Alameda County Health Care Services Agency regarding the Regional Stay-At-Home Order. In #AlamedaCounty it is scheduled to take effect on Monday, Dec. 7, 2020. The new restrictions will remain in place until Jan. 4, 2021.

Bay Area Health Officers Move to Implement the State’s New Regional Stay Home Order, Not Waiting Until Local Hospitals Are Near Crisis to Act

Full statement here:https://covid-19.acgov.org/covid19-assets/docs/press/joint-release-2020.12.04.pdf

Yesterday, Dec. 4, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that all sectors other than retail and essential operations would be closed in regions of the State where less than 15% of ICU beds are available under a new Regional Stay Home Order.

Although health officials throughout the Bay Area are glad to see the State take action in light of the rapidly escalating surge in hospitalizations statewide, many believe even more aggressive action is necessary in the Bay Area to slow the surge and prevent our local hospitals from being overwhelmed.

Rather than waiting until Intensive Care Unit (ICU) bed availability reaches critical levels and delaying closures that are inevitable, the Health Officers for the Counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and Santa Clara, as well as the City of Berkeley are jointly announcing that they will implement the State’s Regional Stay Home Order now.

Rising hospitalization rates across the region threaten not only our community members with severe #COVID19, but anyone who may need care. Acting together now we will have the greatest impact on the surge and save more lives.

Each of us can fight the spread. Keep your family safe by avoiding even small gatherings outside of your household and not traveling. We don’t want holiday gatherings and travel to create a spike of cases on top of the surge we’re already seeing.

Consistent with the State framework, the 6 jurisdictions are working to ensure all sectors have at least 48-hour notice of these closures.

In #AlamedaCounty it is scheduled to take effect on Monday, Dec. 7, 2020. The new restrictions will remain in place until Jan. 4, 2021.

We're in this together. Stay home to stay healthy, and we'll be together again soon.
