The city’s second mass COVID vaccination site opens Feb. 5 with hope of ramping up to 10,000 vaccines a day
Today, Friday, February 5, Moscone Center in San Francisco opened as a new high-volume vaccination site.
The site will initially serve health care workers and community members ages 65 and older, by appointment only and in accordance with the State’s prioritization plan. The site will eventually allow for vaccinations on a broad scale and at a dynamic pace once adequate vaccine supply is received from the state.
The Moscone Center’s spacious and accessible location is part of a network of high-volume vaccination sites organized by the City and County of San Francisco and health care providers. The consortium will enable partnering health care organizations to leverage resources and staff, align operations for efficient and safe vaccine delivery, and offer convenient parking for patients if needed.
The high-volume vaccination site at Moscone Center will open Friday at a lower vaccination capacity due to limited vaccine supply. All vaccinations will be by appointment only on the state’s MyTurn website for anyone eligible to receive the vaccine regardless of health coverage.
Once adequate supply of vaccine is distributed by the state of California, the Moscone Center site will be able to administer 7,000 to 10,000 COVID-19 vaccinations per day, depending on supply. Hours of vaccination will initially be limited but will ramp up and be available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
