Oakland, CA – Starting Thursday, December 16, the Covid Clinic in downtown Oakland at Frank Ogawa Plaza will re-open to the public. Covid Clinic also operates a second site in Fruitvale; hours of operation at the Fruitvale clinic have changed effective today, as detailed below. No appointment is necessary at either clinic.

Both free, walk-up clinics offer all three vaccinations: Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, and Pfizer (for adults; the pediatric vaccination is not yet available).

In addition to vaccinations, Covid Clinic offers three COVID tests:

  1. RT PCR Test: 1-2 day turnaround. No cost to the patient.
  2. Rapid Antigen Test: 30-minute turnaround. Cost may apply.
  3. Rapid Antibody Test: 30-minute turnaround. Cost may apply.

“Amid the season of holiday travel and gatherings, coupled with the emergence of the omicron variant here in the East Bay, it is critical that Oaklanders have easy access to COVID vaccines, boosters, and rapid testing,” said Oakland City Administrator Ed Reiskin. “I am pleased that Covid Clinic is providing these essential services to our community.”
