San Francisco is vaccinating long term care residents, frontline healthcare workers, and those 65 and older. Because vaccine supplies are limited, the state and federal government are using a phased approach to determine who to vaccinate first. To make things more confusing, these guidelines are still changing based on a number of factors. Read more about the California Vaccination plan and who is eligible to be vaccinated now. As supplies are available, the state has also authorized vaccinations for essential workers in education, emergency services, and food & agriculture. See below for efforts to get those under 65 with a disability access to vaccines, as well as overcoming barriers for those unable to travel to sites. Those services will supposedly be available soon.
