To Sign-up for your
COVID-19 injection

Webmaster’s comment Friday 15 Jan: I applied via the above CCHealth Dept web link, received an email invite in less than 48 hrs, followed that link and had a choice of dates, times, and locations for my first injection. Painless so far!

UPDATE:   My wife and I received our first vaccinations on Monday 25th January through the Contra Costa Health organization. We achieved this using the sign-up link above. Neither of us have experienced any side effects after 48 hours.

A Message from 2020 Big Sir Steve to SIR Branch 8 Members
Lifelong learning is a priority for many of us.  We want to keep our bodies and our minds active in retirement.
Our local Diablo Valley College provides a number of interesting Zoom classes this fall.  The instructors are very skilled and knowledgeable.  They include Michael Baker, MD, who spoke to our branch at the Membership Meeting in September.  Please check out the online classes, and follow the signup directions.  Many of these classes have a modest fee for your participation via Zoom.

I hope that you find these classes both fun and interesting.
Regards, Steve.
