Everyone in SF ages 16 and up is now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine — San Francisco Examiner
“San Francisco expanded eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine Tuesday to everyone ages 16 and up, two days earlier than previously planned. City officials said they decided to expand the eligibility earlier after other Bay Area counties opened up the vaccine to those 16 and over, including Alameda and Santa Clara. Last week, San Francisco did allow residents ages 16 and up in eight of The City’s 27 zip codes that have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to start getting vaccinated. That included the Mission and the Bayview-Hunters Point.”
