COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at preventing infection from SARS-CoV-2. At association member Alameda Health System (AHS), in Oakland, Calif., equitable vaccine distribution has been challenging, with appointment-based vaccination programs disproportionately serving white and Asian patients. African American and Latinx patients, who have a higher burden of morbidity and mortality from COVID-19, received vaccines at lower rates throughout Alameda County and the state of California.   

Emergency departments (EDs) act as a medical and social safety net and, in Alameda County, serve a diverse patient population that is particularly vulnerable to health effects of COVID-19. To improve equitable access to vaccines in Alameda County, the health system offered COVID-19 vaccines to ED patients. Hear how they launched the program and lessons learned from vaccinating patients in this nontraditional setting.
