San Francisco’s Department of Health and Supervisor Matt Haney announced that San Francisco’s first “mass” vaccine distribution site will be opening on Friday, January 22, 2021 at CCSF’s Ocean Campus on Frida Kahlo Way in partnership with UCSF, Dignity Health and One Medical.

Please note that due to extremely limited vaccine supply there are currently no drop-in appointments at this site. All vaccines are going to those in the current priority group (health workers and those 65 and over) have already been spoken for and the site is by appointment only.

The City College vaccination site will operate from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm this Friday 1/22, Saturday 1/23 and Sunday 1/24, by appointment only. The hours for the week of January 25, 2021 will be determined based on vaccine supply.

While vaccine supply remains the limiting factor in the short-term, the site will have the capacity to vaccinate more than 3,000 people per day once fully operational.  

As more vaccine becomes available, SF’s healthcare providers & SFDPH will increase capacity at the City College site and open additional high volume vaccine sites.

CCSF is the first of three planned “mass” vaccination sites in San Francisco. Moscone Center in SoMa and the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market in Bayview are also planned, but not opening date has been set yet.

This location, which is operated by the City and staffed in partnership with UCSF Health, is the first of three high-volume vaccination sites announced by Mayor Breed last week.

Two additional high-volume vaccination sites will be located at the Moscone Center in SoMa and the SF Market in the Bayview. These high-volume sites will serve anyone eligible to receive the vaccine regardless of health coverage (by appointment only) and are part of San Francisco’s planned network of vaccination sites to facilitate the quick and efficient delivery of COVID-19 vaccines.

The high-volume vaccination sites, like the new site at City College, will be complemented by targeted efforts to ensure communities most highly-impacted by COVID-19 receive equitable access to the vaccine. These targeted efforts include mobile vaccination teams, community vaccination sites, San Francisco Department of Public Health’s community clinics, and other safety net clinics in neighborhoods such as Chinatown, the Mission, the Western Addition, and the Bayview.
