COVID Vaccine Info

At this time, AHS is administering limited amounts of the COVID vaccine. AHS is following state and county guidelines to distribute the vaccine equitably and as soon as possible based on the supply it receives. At this time and as supplies allow, we are providing vaccine appointments for AHS patients who are:

  • IHSS workers
  • 65 years and older

Asian Health Services (AHS) has established a new online waitlist application for AHS patients seeking to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This is for AHS patients only. If you are an AHS patient, click on the “AHS Patient COVID vaccine sign-up” button on this webpage to register for the waitlist. Patients will need to have their AHS medical record number to register. AHS will notify patients when an appointment is available. Once an AHS patient is eligible to receive the vaccine based on his or her level of risk and vaccine supplies are available, AHS will notify the patient when an appointment is available.

AHS is updating its information and protocols as they rapidly change. Regular updates will be available at the AHS website. Thank you to our AHS patients for your patience and thank you for choosing Asian Health Services as your partner in health.

COVID-19 Vaccine Wait List Sign Up

Sign up in-language for your COVID vaccine if you are an AHS patient.

  • Anyone over the age of 18 should get the vaccine. It is the best way to protect yourself and your family from COVID.
  • AHS is currently administering the Moderna vaccine.
  • It offers great protection. Compared to the annual flu vaccine, it is twice as effective.
  • Yes, it is safe. While it is a new vaccine, over 10 million doses have already been given and bad reactions are extremely rare.
  • If you are allergic to polyethelene glycol (Miralax), you should not get the current COVID vaccine.
  • If you develop immediate allergic reaction (hives, wheezing) to the first COVID vaccine, you should not get the 2nd shot.

We are reserving your spot in the waitlist and will call or text you when appointments become available based on your eligibility and our vaccine supply.

  • AHS did not receive this batch of vaccines. Also, more recent information confirmed that the paused batch is now okay to be used.
  • After the second dose, there is a high chance of side effects similar to a flu vaccine (arm soreness, muscle aches, headache, tiredness) for a few days. This is expected and can be a good sign that your immune system is working.
  • You can get the vaccine. Please discuss this with your doctor first if you still have concerns.

The current vaccine is free. Alameda County is currently working with the state and local clinics like AHS and local pharmacies to provide the vaccine to our community. We will notify you when we are ready to make your vaccine appointment

Eligible patients will get a phone call, text, or letter from AHS. For this vaccine, we will book 2 appointments for the 2 shots, 28 days apart.

Since our vaccine supply is limited, If you are being offered a vaccine appointment, please take it.
