Public Health Immunization Clinics
Contra Costa's drop-in Public Health Immunization Clinics are open one afternoon each week in Brentwood, Pittsburg, Richmond, and Concord.
Clinic fees are based on patient age, insurance status, and vaccine(s) needed. Please check the fee tabs below. Flu and Tdap (pertussis or whooping cough booster) vaccine are available for all adults and children at reduced cost. For pregnant women, only flu and Tdap are given at these clinics. Both children and adults with private health insurance and adults with MediCal should see their doctor for vaccines. Our clinics cannot bill private health insurance or MediCal.
