Mayor London Breed announced today that San Francisco General Hospital is offering drop-in vaccinations daily for SF residents 65+ from 9am to 3pm through February 23rd with no appointment necessary.
According to Mission Local, previously people eligible for walk-in vaccinations needed to live in certain zip codes. Now, all residents of San Francisco are eligible.
People are encouraged to bring ID, but SF Dept. of Emergency Management says that no San Francisco resident age 65 or over will be turned away due to lack of identification.

Citywide Vaccination Sites:
The City is partnering with healthcare providers to establish high volume vaccine sites. Supply is limited, and you may not be able to book an appointment, even if you are eligible.
Please visit https://sf.gov/get-vaccinated-against-covid-19 for a list of sites with scheduling information.
Preparing for your appointment or drop-in visit:
Do not visit a vaccine center if you have a cough, fever, or any COVID-19 like symptoms.
If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days or are quarantining because you might have been exposed to COVID-19, please wait until your quarantine is complete before you visit a vaccine center.
We are encouraging San Franciscans to delay getting the vaccine if they have been infected with COVID-19 in the last 90 days. While it is safe to get vaccinated if you have had a recent COVID-19 infection, you are very unlikely to get reinfected with COVID-19 if you have had an infection in the last 90 days.
What to expect:
- Our staff will verify that you are eligible to receive the vaccine based on state and federal guidelines. If you are not eligible, you will be instructed to return once it is your turn to be vaccinated.
- When you receive your vaccine, you will receive information about the vaccine, including side effects and what to expect afterward.
- After you receive your vaccine, we will observe you for any reactions for 15-30 minutes.
- We will also schedule your 2nd dose appointment 3 to 4 weeks after your first dose, depending on which vaccine you get.
- You will receive a vaccine administration card, which will have information about the vaccine dose that you received. Please keep the card or take a picture of it for your records.
