SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Sutter Health has debuted sign up options on Thursday to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
The appointments are only open to Sutter patients that are either older than 75 years of age, or are health care workers, in accordance with California’s vaccine priority guidelines.
The health system hopes to include patients as young as 65 years old soon.
