Anyone 5 and older is now eligible to get vaccinated in San Francisco.  At this time only Pfizer is approved for those ages 5 to 17 years of age. People under 18 need permission from a parent or guardian to be vaccinated, except under certain limited circumstances.

Appointments are required at SFUSD school-based vaccine clinics at this time. Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine and make an appointment by visiting sf.gov/covidvaccine.

Studies have shown the Pfizer vaccine is very effective in preventing COVID-19 infections and producing protective antibodies in teenagers. Learn more from the CDC about the benefits of getting a vaccine (Español | 简体中文 | Tiếng Việt | 한국어).
