COVID-19 bivalent vaccine boosters

Learn about San Francisco residents who have received a bivalent vaccine booster.

The data on this page do not include the COVID-19 monovalent vaccine booster. Data on monovalent vaccine boosters are available on the COVID-19 vaccine boosters page.

There may be fluctuations and delays as the state improves their database. Check the update date on each dashboard.

This page includes data only on bivalent COVID-19 vaccine booster doses. The bivalent vaccine is a “two strain” vaccine that helps provide broad protection against COVID-19. A bivalent vaccine booster will help protect against severe illness and hospitalization from the original COVID-19 virus and the Omicron variant BA.4 and BA.5.  

People are best protected from severe COVID-19 illness when they stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines including available boosters. 

Everyone is encouraged to get a bivalent booster dose when they are eligible. Learn about who is recommended to get a bivalent booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at this link.

Residents with a bivalent vaccine booster dose

The chart below shows San Francisco residents who have received a bivalent booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. It includes all residents who received a bivalent booster from any provider, even if they received it somewhere else in California. 

People who do not live in San Francisco are not included, even if they received their COVID-19 bivalent booster dose from a provider in San Francisco.

Data come from the California Immunization Registry (CAIR2). CAIR2 is run by the California Department of Public Health. 

Bivalent booster recipients are identified from CAIR2 as follows: 

  • Residents who meet current age-group recommendations; and 

  • Residents who have received a dose of a new bivalent booster. 

“Total bivalent booster recipients” shows the total number of unique San Francisco residents who have received a dose of the bivalent vaccine booster. 

“Daily new bivalent booster recipients” shows the 7-day rolling average number of residents getting a dose of the bivalent vaccine booster. The 7-day rolling average is the average number of residents that got a bivalent booster dose on a particular day and the previous 6 days. This rolling average helps smooth out day-to-day fluctuations. 

Residents with a bivalent vaccine booster by race or ethnicity

The chart below shows the estimated percent of residents by race and ethnicity who have received a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine booster dose out of all residents.

Data come from the California Immunization Registry (CAIR2). CAIR2 is run by the California Department of Public Health. 

San Francisco residents who have received a bivalent booster dose from a California provider reporting to CAIR2 are included in these data. All bivalent booster recipients living in San Francisco are included in these data. Also included are residents who got their bivalent booster outside of San Francisco but in California. Bivalent boosters administered in San Francisco to non-city residents are not included. 

Bivalent booster recipients are identified from CAIR2 as follows: 

  • Residents who meet current age-group recommendations; and 

  • Residents who have received a dose of a new bivalent booster. 

Population information is from the 2019 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimates. The U.S. Census Bureau provides these data.  

We use these data to estimate the percent of each SF group that has received a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine booster dose. 

Disclaimers 

The ACS estimates the number of residents in each race and ethnicity group based on survey of residents. Estimates may not be precise, especially for groups with smaller populations. For example, the ACS reports that about 2,900 residents identify as Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. This value is the best estimate in a range. The true number is likely between 2,600 and 3,300 residents. 

This range affects the vaccination rate. If the true population is larger than the estimate we use, then the true vaccination rate will be lower than what we report here. 

Healthcare providers might report race and ethnicity differently than how they are defined by the ACS. Also, individuals might identify their race or ethnicity differently in their census response form how they report their race or ethnicity to their healthcare provider. The largest differences are likely in the definition of categories of "multi-racial" and "other." For that reason, these groups are not reported in this chart, but the data are still available in: 

  • the table beneath the chart, and 

  • San Francisco's open data portal (click on “View source data” above).  

Please interpret these data with caution.

San Francisco residents who have received a bivalent booster dose from a California provider reporting to CAIR2 are included in these data. All bivalent booster recipients living in San Francisco are included in these data. Also included are residents who got their bivalent booster outside of San Francisco but in California. Bivalent boosters administered in San Francisco to non-city residents are not included. 

Bivalent booster recipients are identified from CAIR2 as follows: 

  • Residents who meet current age-group recommendations; and 

  • Residents who have received a dose of a new bivalent booster. 

To calculate the percent of residents with a bivalent booster dose by age, we divide the number of residents who have received a bivalent booster dose by the estimated number of residents in that age group. 

Population information is from the 2019 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimates. The U.S. Census bureau provides these data. Population estimates for custom age groups that we are reporting out are from the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series (IPUMS). Data from this tool may differ from total population estimates used in other tables. You can learn more about how the IPUMS estimates are created here.  

Disclaimer 

The ACS estimates the number of residents in each age group based on survey of residents. Estimates may not be precise, especially for groups with smaller populations. 

This range affects the vaccination rate. If the true population is larger than the estimate we use, then the true vaccination rate will be lower than what we report here. This is likely true for groups that show a larger number of vaccine recipients than estimated residents. As a result, the percent of residents who received a bivalent booster is only an estimate and percentages will not be reported above 90% 

Residents with a bivalent vaccine booster by neighborhood

The chart below shows the estimated percent of residents by neighborhood who have received a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine booster out of all residents in that neighborhood.  

This map includes all bivalent booster doses administered by any provider to any San Francisco resident. 

Neighborhoods with a higher proportion of residents with a bivalent booster dose are darker blue. 

Neighborhoods with a lower proportion of residents with a bivalent booster dose are lighter blue, green, or light yellow.

Neighborhood results in the map do not include people that did not report a valid street address. Therefore, the total number of residents with a bivalent booster dose represented in this map may be less than the total number of residents with a bivalent booster. The total number of residents with a bivalent booster includes residents who identified San Francisco as their home county, even if they did not have a valid street address.
