SF Will Soon Receive its First 12,000 Vaccine Doses
As reported by the New York Times, Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine received approval from FDA advisers on Thursday afternoon which cleared the way to authorize its use.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced shortly after that the city will soon receive their first 12,000 vaccine doses which will go to frontline healthcare workers.
It will take months before the city has widespread access to the vaccine, but the mayor says “hope is on the way.”
According to the New York Times, the initial shipment of about 3.2 million doses will ship within 24 hours of being officially cleared by the FDA. Another 3.2 million additional doses are being held in reserve for the initial recipients to receive their second dose about three weeks later.
This is an evolving news story with more details available shortly.
San Francisco will soon begin receiving our first 12,000 vaccine doses, which will go to our frontline healthcare workers who have stepped up every day to keep our community healthy.
It will take many months before we have widespread access to vaccines but hope is on the way. https://t.co/rvxLpzqR0H
