Vaccine required

Show proof of vaccination at businesses and events that ask for it.

Show proof of vaccination

Vaccines and boosters are highly effective at preventing people from getting very sick or dying from COVID-19 and lowers the risk of developing long Covid

San Francisco no longer requires businesses and large indoor events to get proof of vaccination.

But you must show proof of vaccination at any business or large indoor event that chooses to require staff and customers to be up-to-date on vaccines and boosters.

You are encouraged to get up-to-date on your boosters as soon as you qualify.

Be prepared to show your Vaccination Record Card (CRC) from the CDC. Or show a photo of the card on your phone.

If you don’t have your card, find out other ways to verify you have been vaccinated.

Show a negative test instead

If you are not vaccinated, a business or large event that wants to verify your vaccination can choose, but is not required, to let you show proof of a negative test result instead.

For businesses

If you run a business that wants to verify vaccination status, get more information on what you need to do

You can choose to be more restrictive and require staff and customers to be up-to-date on both vaccines and boosters. You can also choose to require that people wear masks.

Regardless, you are encouraged to have all your staff up-to-date on their boosters as soon as they qualify.

We have posters you can download and print out.
