Additional flu resources and information:

If you are seeking flu vaccines at times that fall outside of our schedule, please review the Alameda County Immunization Clinics/Flu Shot location resource list (English and Spanish), which includes locations that provide vaccines for children and adults, tuberculosis skin tests, seasonal influenza, and more.

It’s also important to note that vaccines are also available at many local and chain pharmacies, but do call these locations in advance to ensure what you need is in stock and to determine age requirements. These are often covered by most medical insurances.
If you have health insurance, (such as Medi-Cal, Alameda Alliance, Kaiser, Blue Shield, Blue Cross, United Health Care, etc.), the very best place to go for all vaccinations is their doctor's office, and often their offices have same day appointments.
