New system, but not MyTurn?
Kevin Dowling

Several people I know tried the phone number and they could not get through

Did staff send out the slides to panelists?
Neetu Balram
57:23
Hi Kevin, the phone number is highly popular, we have about 30 people manning the phones m-f. since staff help people make appts, call times are on the longer side
Kevin Dowling
57:49
Fire depts.!! Should have been used early
Sheraden Nicholau
01:00:05
Thank you for that advocacy Dr. Tri Do
Neetu Balram
01:08:36
Brian, reducing barriers to the minimum eligible age also allows us to reach people younger than 50 which includes many of our essential workers and Latinx families.
Joe Greaves
01:08:52
While it is really great to see so many vaccination efforts underway, it is mystifying that private practice physicians are still having such a difficult time being allocated vaccine. Patients generally a high level of trust in their personal physician and our members are eager to help vaccinate their patients and others. I understand with Blue Shield in the mix there is little the County can do, but I do hope we eventually get to a place soon where we leverage the entire delivery system for vaccinations.
Neetu Balram
01:10:30
While we wait for vaccine supply levels to increase, we must prioritize zip codes and increase opportunities for people who may otherwise not have access to vaccnie.
Yadiel Plascencia

How will the geographic areas be defined for the Coalitions?

That's a wonderful win
Yadiel Plascencia

Would Alameda County be willing to allocate more of the Coliseum vaccines for AC residents?
Joe Greaves
01:27:16
Where can these RFPs be found?
Sheraden Nicholau
01:29:08

The Ashland Free Medical Clinic in San Lorenzo offers primary care services to uninsured folks on Saturdays. A pop-up near there might be helpful.

@Pastor Arlene I was just on an email today about following up with Our Lady of the Rosary to explore if they could be a potential site. Also we can try to link you w/some of our partners in the Vietnamese Community anchored in Oakland who probably have more reach
Wendy Peterson
01:44:26
I'm glad that Pastor Arlene has raised this issue. Many CBOs have cash flow constraints and they struggle with County contracts that don't pay invoices in a timely way.
Sheraden Nicholau
01:50:33
