San Francisco City Mayor London Breed announced during a Thursday press conference that the Moscone Center would start administering coronavirus vaccines beginning on Friday.
Mass Vaccination Site
The city mayor said the center aims to provide about 7,000 to 10,000 doses per day once the state and federal government supplies the much-needed treatment. However, the center would only cater to appointment-only vaccinations. It is initially only available to health care workers and residents who are at least 65 years old.
Despite the limited supply of the COVID-19 vaccine, San Francisco leaders plan to begin operation in the Moscone Center. The opening of the area as a mass vaccination site is in cooperation between San Francisco officials and Kaiser Permanente, ABC7 News reported.
Residents who are eligible and willing to get vaccinated can set their appointment date on the MyTurn website.
