The Oakland Coliseum mass vaccination site, also known as the RingCentral Coliseum, which was scheduled to close April 11, will remain open for another four weeks due to an agreement the state has reached with Contra Costa and Alameda counties.

According to a press release from the office of California Gov. Gavin Newsom, the two counties will provide half of the weekly vaccines used at the site while the state will supply the rest. The Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, will continue to cover the site’s operating costs until Sept. 30, according to FEMA Region 9 public affairs specialist Robert Barker.

“We are proud to continue operations at the RingCentral Coliseum site with our local and federal partners,” Newsom said in the press release. “I’d like to thank our partners for stepping up to support the Bay Area community — especially those hit hardest by this pandemic.”

As of April 5, workers at the Oakland Coliseum site have administered 329,573 vaccines and are expected to administer up to 6,000 vaccines a day under the agreement.
