San Francisco Has Now Administered Over One Million Vaccine Doses

Another vaccine milestone is in the books!

The San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) announced today that the City of San Francisco just passed a new vaccine milestone. That’s right, 1 million vaccine doses have now been administered!

“Thanks a million SF!” wrote the SFDPH on Twitter. “Together we have administered our one millionth vaccine dose and achieved an amazing milestone in our fight against the spread of COVID-19.”

As of the writing of this article, San Francisco has administered a total of 1,029,249 vaccine doses. That means about 76% of San Franciscans over 16 have received one dose, and 62% have completed a vaccine series.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health said on Twitter that of the 1 million doses administered, over 200,000 of them were given in the San Francisco Health Network. Almost 400,000 were administered by Kaiser, and the rest by UCSF, pharmacies, and other providers.

SFDPH also gave a special thank you to community volunteers and partners who helped the City mark this important moment.

San Francisco recently announced that people 12 and older are now eligible for the Pfizer vaccine. The City has been administering vaccines to that age group since May 13.

Eligible San Franciscans can visit SF.gov/getvaccinated for information about the City’s vaccine rollout and appointment links. California’s official website to check vaccine eligibility, make appointments, and sign up for notifications is MyTurn.ca.gov, which is available in 12 different languages. You can get notifications for when vaccine appointments open up in the Bay Area Vaccine Notification group on Telegram or the @CovaxSF Twitter bot.
