Get vaccinated against COVID-19

If you are eligible and live or work in SF, sign up for an appointment to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

What to do

Book an appointment at a general public vaccine site

The City is partnering with healthcare providers to operate vaccine sites for people who live or work in San Francisco.

If you need to reschedule a second dose appointment, contact the location where you got your first dose. If you booked an appointment to get a first dose, you must book an appointment to get your second dose.

We will add more sites as they become available.

Cost

Vaccines are free to people who live and work in San Francisco.

Insurance

You do not need insurance to get the vaccine.

Ride Muni or Paratransit for free, to and from your appointment

On Muni, show your vaccine card or proof of your appointment. You can also show an email confirmation or a photo of your card. See SF guidance on traveling on public transit.

For Paratransit information, see the SFMTA website.

Book an appointment with your private healthcare provider

You can check with your healthcare provider to see if they have appointments. 

Dignity Health

Kaiser Permanente

Sutter Health

UCSF Health

For your appointment

Your email confirmation will have information about what to bring.

You may be asked for:

  • Photo ID
  • Proof of address, if using a drop-in site limited by zip code (such as a utility bill)

If you do not have these documents, you may be asked to fill out an attestation form (see example) when you arrive to get your vaccine.

People under 18 will need permission from a parent or guardian to get vaccinated. Check each vaccine site for details.

Special cases

Targeted neighborhood vaccine sites

Certain communities have been hit hardest by COVID-19. Those communities have been historically underserved by the healthcare system. 

San Francisco has set up neighborhood vaccine sites in some of those communities. The vaccine sites run in partnership with community-based organizations. 

You need an invitation from a community partner to get an appointment at these sites. These sites are not open to the public now.

Get help

If you have questions about the vaccine, talk to your healthcare provider.

 

If you’re 65 and over or have a disability, you can call for a vaccine appointment at Kaiser USF Koret Center.
