Announcement Description

The vaccine is one of the most important ways to end the pandemic. It is very safe, and highly effective. Currently, the vaccine remains available only in limited quantities. Vaccines allocated to the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) have either been administered or are earmarked for those who have been scheduled to receive a first dose and those who need a second dose. 

San Francisco is following the State's population prioritization plan. The vaccine is expected to be available to everyone by the end of 2021. A complete vaccination requires two doses. 

You can sign up to get a notification when you are eligible to get the vaccine by going to this link and signing up to get a notification. You may not get a notification for months, because vaccines are in limited supply. It depends on when the City receives doses from the state and federal government.
