We originally had the ambitious goal of getting 10,000 vaccines a day in San Francisco.
We now take an average of 11,000 recordings a day.
On Friday we set a new record – 14,000 recordings in a single day!

A person is not fully protected until two weeks after receiving the second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or two weeks after the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Local officials estimate that nearly 770,000 San Franciscans received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, which is roughly 49% of the population (excluding those under the age of 16 who are ineligible).
Residents can get a free COVID-19 vaccine either from government agencies or through providers like CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens.
By April 15, California expects everyone who is 16 or older to get appointments. Currently, all adults aged 50 or over can be vaccinated, as well as anyone aged 16 or over who has health problems or who work in certain high-risk industries.
