What to do
Vaccines and boosters are highly effective at preventing people from getting very sick or dying from COVID-19.
They also lower the risk of developing long Covid.
Update: Sept. 13, 2023
SFDPH urges all San Franciscans 6 months and older to receive a new COVID-19 vaccine, aligning with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations. The new vaccines are expected to begin arriving as early as this week.
The updated vaccines were approved by the FDA on Sept. 11, 2023. When the FDA authorized updated Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, it also discontinued authorization for the use of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 bivalent vaccines.
As a result, SFDPH temporarily suspended vaccine operations at community-based COVID-19 vaccination sites as of Tuesday, September 12. Vaccine operations at community-based COVID-19 vaccination sites will restart when the new vaccine is locally available.
Health care providers are the first place to go for COVID-19 and flu health care.
Through a network of SFDPH-affiliated sites, SFDPH offers vaccinations to individuals without health insurance or who face barriers to access vaccination. San Francisco is committed to ensuring low-barrier access to new COVID-19 vaccines and will continue to partner with community organizations in priority neighborhoods to offer information and vaccines.
