The new site is part of the Biden administration’s efforts to establish 100 vaccination supersites nationwide in the first 100 days. These are co-operated by FEMA and the Cal Office of Emergency Services.
FEMA provides the resources and staff to set up an immunization center. The plan is to start with 6,000 doses per day.
Governor Gavin Newsom announced the partnership at the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum on Wednesday. This will be another vaccination site.
Both sites will start receiving the COVID-19 vaccine from February 16th.
According to the governor, the location was chosen to help secure a community that is normally left vaccinated.
Governor Newsom said the state would be vaccinated with an additional 1,060,000 doses this week, but realized that supply shortages were affecting the entire state’s territory.
Several vaccination sites throughout the state had to suspend the first dose of vaccine due to supply shortages.
