Mega Event Guidance Update
On August 18, 2021 the California Department of Public Health updated the Mega Events guidance:

1.  Indoor Mega Events are now defined as indoor events with 1,000 or more attendees. Vaccine verification and negative testing requirements for attendees of Indoor Mega Events will now apply to indoor events with 1,000 or more attendees.

2.  Verifying vaccination status through “self attestation” is no longer allowed for Indoor Mega Events. See the CDPH Vaccine Record Guidelines & Standards for information on appropriate vaccination status verification methods. Furthermore, self attestation is no longer recommended as a vaccine verification method for Outdoor Mega Events.

3.  These changes go into effect on September 20,2021 and will remain in place until November 1, 2021.

For more information regarding these changes see the CDPH Beyond the Blueprint for Industry and Business Sectors.

Cal/OSHA now has an updated tutorial video showing how to properly use an N95 respirator. View the tutorial video here.
Alameda County is partnering with local organizations, including but not limited to: community- or faith-based organizations, advocacy groups, employers, housing developments, encampments, or neighborhood groups that need an on-site vaccination clinic in order to equitably distribute vaccine amongst our residents.

If you are interested in requesting a “pop-up” mobile vaccination clinic, please fill out the Mobile COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics Interest Form. The purpose of this survey is to collect information required for scheduling a vaccination clinic with your organization. Please note, vaccination clinics are intended as one-time events, and typically range from 30-300 doses per clinic. Depending on the vaccine type, we may need you to host a 2nd dose clinic 3- or 4-weeks later. Submitting a form does not guarantee a clinic can be scheduled.

If you have any questions, concerns, or difficulties activating the link, please send an email to Renee Yun at [email protected]. We look forward to hearing from you.
