80% Of Eligible San Franciscans Are Now Fully Vaccinated

Another vaccine milestone is in the books!

As of this Sunday, August 29, 80% of eligible San Franciscans are now fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Eligible populations include anyone 12 years of age and older. The city is well on the way to increasing the numbers even more, as 86% of eligible San Franciscans have received at least 1 dose. That’s a total of 683,699 people!

San Francisco Mayor London Breed celebrated the moment on Twitter.

San Franciscans 65 and older have high rates of vaccination, but there is still a good amount of the population left to cover. As of now, 87% of residents 65+ are fully vaccinated, and 94% have at least 1 dose. Regardless of age, fitness level, and health history, no one is exempt from the risks of contracting Covid-19.

The Pfizer vaccine was recently approved by the FDA. If you were waiting for FDA approval to get the shot, now’s the time to make your appointment! As the Delta variant surges through the Bay Area, this is your best bet for protecting yourself.
