“Getting people who live and work in San Francisco vaccinated as quickly as possible is our top priority,” said SF Mayor London N. Breed. “We’re moving full speed ahead with setting up our COVID-19 vaccination network in San Francisco and are ready to ramp up as we get more supplies.”
“As we keep making progress vaccinating healthcare workers and people 65 and older, we’re looking ahead to the next phase and are making sure we’re ready to vaccinate workers quickly so they can safely be out in the city serving the community.”
We’re excited to announce that people who are eligible to be vaccinated can now sign up for appointments at https://t.co/lvGnOqQ0TG.
