San Francisco Mayor London Breed announces the opening of a neighborhood vaccination site in the Mission, Monday afternoon.

“Most people will receive the vaccine by making an appointment at one of the high-volume sites that the City and local healthcare providers are currently setting up. These sites will be located at City College’s Main Campus on Ocean Avenue, the Moscone Center, and the SF Produce Market in the Bayview. The vaccine will also be provided through select community clinics and pharmacies as well as neighborhood vaccine access sites.” Said Breed, explaining San Francisco’s strategy to protect its citizens.

San Francisco has officially opened two of the three high volumes sites at City College Main Campus and Moscone Center, with the third site in Bayview on the way.

“We’re ready to administer 10,000 doses per day, but ensuring equitable distribution requires meeting people where they are, especially in the communities that have been hardest hit. In SF, Latinos are 15% of the population but make up 42% of COVID-19 cases.” Breed continued, “That’s why having neighborhood access sites, mobile sites, and community clinics is so important. Every day we get more people vaccinated is another step forward in our city’s recovery. Hope is on the horizon.”

 

Mayor Breed has been vocal about needing more doses for San Francisco.

Newsom announced California’s plan to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine in January. Since then, California has entered 1B Tier Two, opening vaccines to those 65 and older.

Phase 1A:

  • About 3 million people
  • Healthcare workers
  • Long-term care residents

Phase 1B:

1B Tier One:

  • Individuals 75 and older
  • Those at risk of exposure at work in the following sectors: education, childcare, emergency services, and food and agriculture

1B Tier Two:

  • Individuals 65 -74 years of age
  • Those at risk of exposure at work in the following sectors: transportation and logistics; industrial, commercial, residential, and sheltering facilities and services; critical manufacturing
  • Congregate settings with outbreak risk: incarcerated and homeless

Phase 1 C:

  • Individuals 50 -64 years of age
  • People 16-64 years of age and have an underlying health condition or disability which increases their risk of severe COVID-19
  • Those at risk of exposure at work in the following sectors: water and wastewater; defense; energy; chemical and hazardous materials; communications and IT; financial services; government operations / community-based essential functions

All COVID-19 vaccines, including their administration, are free. Both the Moderna vaccine and the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine require 2 doses. The Moderna vaccine doses are 28 days apart and the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine doses are 21 days apart. The general public is expected to be able to get the vaccine Spring 2021, but the date is subject to change.
