Hayward Firehouse Clinic COVID-19 vaccination available for 12-to-15-year-olds starting May 26

May 24, 2021

On Jan. 21, 2021, the Hayward Fire Department, in partnership with Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center and other organizations, established a COVID-19 vaccination site on the grounds of the Hayward Firehouse Clinic.

Since it opened, the clinic has made COVID-19 vaccine more accessible to South Hayward and local communities who have been hardest hit by the coronavirus and the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, under management of Tiburcio Vasquez, the Firehouse Clinic vaccination site is poised to be a source of COVID-19 vaccine for newly eligible youth between 12 and 15 years of age starting on May 26.

To make an appointment for COVID-19 vaccination at the Firehouse Clinic, go online here or call Tiburcio Vasquez at (510) 471-5880.  To watch a video about formation and operation of the vaccination site at the Firehouse Clinic, go here to the City of Hayward YouTube channel.
