Vaccination site also has testing kiosk for symptoms, travel, exposure

Berkeley, California (Tuesday, June 29, 2021) - Anyone who is at least 12 years old can now get a COVID-19 vaccination 5 days a week at a West Berkeley site that's easy to reach on bike, bus, transit or car.

Located just off San Pablo Avenue, the Berkeley Adult School site also has a testing kiosk when people need testing for travel, workplaces, exposure or when experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

This site also represents a transition to a neighborhood setting from the City-facilitated mass vaccination site at Golden Gate Fields, where Curative Inc. and the City coordinated to vaccinate nearly 100,000 people over 4 months until its last day on Saturday, June 26.

Reach out to those who may be unaware of how and where to get a shot and let them know that vaccinations are more convenient than ever. You can make an appointment or just walk-up during operating business hours. Got your first dose elsewhere? You can also come here for critical second doses.

West Berkeley Walk-up + Appointment Vaccination Clinic
1701 San Pablo Avenue

  • Every Tuesday-Saturday: 9am-5pm 
  • Pfizer (12+) and Moderna (18+)
  • Walk-up or by appointment 
  • Parental consent: Parents or guardians must fill out the online consent form when registering for their appointment.  
  • Reserve a spot on MyTurn, complete eligibility information, including parental consent if needed. Then scroll down the "select location" page until you see " Berkeley Adult School Kiosk."  There are separate links for Pfizer or Moderna vaccines at the site.

Those seeking their second dose after receiving a first dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines elsewhere can make a drop-in visit. Come at least 3 weeks after your first Pfizer dose and at least 4 weeks after your first Moderna dose and bring your CDC card with proof of your first vaccination.

You can also find appointments at MyTurn.ca.gov, providers such as Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health, Stanford Health Care who are vaccinating members and non-members, and local pharmacies such as CVS, Rite Aid, Safeway, and Walgreens

Coordinated by the City of Berkeley on a parking lot owned by Berkeley Unified School District and run by a private medical provider, Curative Inc., the consolidated vaccine and testing site also reflects the partnerships among public and private parties that have been essential to fighting the pandemic.

Even the vaccinated should get tested when experiencing symptoms

The pandemic isn't over. The virus is still spreading. Getting tested for symptoms, even if you're vaccinated, is an important part of stopping the spread.

Be aware of COVID-19 symptoms, which can appear 2-14 days after exposure:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

When exposed to COVID-19, unvaccinated should get tested

Unvaccinated people who have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 should get tested.

Vaccinated people who do not have symptoms of COVID-19 but have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19, do not need to get tested. Exceptions include those who live or work in congregate settings, such as a dormitory.

Read California's testing guidelines for more details.

For travel, check with airlines and travel destination jurisdiction for type, date of testing

State, local, and territorial governments may have travel restrictions in place, including testing requirements, stay-at-home orders, and quarantine requirements upon arrival.

For up-to-date information and travel guidance, check and follow the state or territorial and local health department where you are, along your route, and where you are going. Your destination's restrictions and policies may change during your travel.

If traveling by air, check if your airline requires any health information, testing, or other documents.

Different destinations and airlines vary for testing requirements including on timing and approved test type. Sites coordinated by the City do not have guaranteed turnaround times.

The most powerful tool to protect yourself and our community remains vaccination. Drop in at 1701 San Pablo Avenue Tuesday through Saturday or make an appointment.
