On Tuesday the San Francisco Chronicle reported that: “Alameda County plans mass vaccination sites at Coliseum and Fairgrounds: County officials said they plan to launch high volume vaccination sites at Oakland Colisuem and the Alameda County Fairgrounds by mid-February with hopes of delivering 5,000 vaccine doses per day per site. Those sites will run in addition to the pop-up sites currently in operation at St. Rose Hospital and Castro Valley Library, as well as five community sites in neighborhoods. “We are planning for a bigger distribution network than we have supply right now,” said Dr. Kathleen Clanon, director of Alameda County Health Care Services Agency, during a vaccine townhall on Friday. “We are crossing our fingers that we get enough supply to run them.”

The state’s stay-at-home order was cancelled on Monday due to an improved forecast for ICU capacity but the Bay Area remains in the most restrictive Purple Tier under the state’s color-coded system
