On February 3, Governor Newsom's announced that the State of California will partner with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to launch a mega Point-of-Dispensing (POD) pilot vaccination site at the Oakland Coliseum. The mega POD is scheduled to open on February 16, with additional details to be provided in the coming days. The infusion of vaccine is much needed in our community and will help us reach more people more quickly.
Neighborhoods surrounding the Coliseum are some of the areas most impacted by COVID-19 and we had begun planning for a mega POD at this location when we received the news about the State plan. The area is also home to many of our essential workers who have kept the economy open over the past year. We will continue robust outreach and engagement through our community partners to ensure that residents in surrounding neighborhoods have access to the vaccine. We understand that residents will be able to register for the Coliseum mega POD in the coming days.
