SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – A third mass vaccination site is now opening in San Francisco.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed tweeted that the site is located at the SF Produce Market along Jerrold Avenue in the Bayview District.
“We’re pushing forward to make vaccines available and accessible to all of our communities, especially those that have been hardest hit by COVID-19,” Breed said.
People who live and work in San Francisco can sign up and be notified when they become eligible under state guidance to receive the vaccine by visiting the city’s vaccination notification website.
Counting the Moscone Center and City College of San Francisco, this is now the city’s third high volume vaccination site to open in the past month
The city will operate this site in partnership with Sutter Health, initially offering vaccinations to healthcare workers and people 65 and older.
The initial doses per day will be limited due to the available supply of the vaccine, then ramp up when the supply increases.
The city’s network of vaccination sites includes targeted efforts to ensure communities most highly impacted by COVID-19 receive equitable access to the vaccine.
Department of Health officials say the Bayview Hunters Point has had the highest rate of COVID cases throughout the pandemic, and one of the highest in mortality rates due to the virus.
The city’s efforts include neighborhood vaccination sites, SF Department of Public Health community clinics, mobile vaccination teams and partnerships with local pharmacies.
To get vaccinated at the Bayview location there are no walk-ins, you must have an appointment.
It is open to anyone who meets the eligibility requirements, whether they have health coverage or not.
