Children age 6 months to 4 years old are now eligible to get vaccinated in San Francisco. COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, protect everyone at home, and allow children to stay in childcare and preschool. 

How to get the vaccine:

  • Talk to your child's doctor about setting up a vaccine appointment.
  • If your child does not have a doctor, check health systems, some community clinics, and some limited pharmacies for ages 3-4. 
  • Major health systems such as Kaiser, UCSF, Dignity and Sutter Health will be opening appointments starting Tuesday, June 21 and information can be found at myturn.ca.gov and sf.gov/getvaccinated.
  • The San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) will begin offering COVID-19 vaccines to families who need them at SFDPH-operated and neighborhood sites, including the San Francisco Health Network (SFHN) and Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG) starting Wednesday, June 22. For a list of vaccine sites, go to: sf.gov/getvaccinated.
