San Francisco Vaccine Site Opens in Ocean View Neighborhood

San Francisco has opened a new vaccine site in the Ocean View neighborhood, to expand access for several communities.

The site serves residents 18 years and older in the Lakeview, Ocean View, Merced Heights and Ingleside neighborhoods — an area with one of the highest COVID-19 infection rates in the city.

District 11 Supervisor Ahsha Safai said the site was established as part of the city’s efforts to ensure equitable access to the vaccine.

“It’s going to have a significant impact because it’s low barrier, easily accessible to those that need it the most. Lakeview, OMI, along with the 94112 zip code have been one of the highest impacted areas of COVID-19,” she said.

The site at 50 Broad Street is open Wednesdays and Fridays between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Residents can drop-in or book an appointment by contacting the OMI COVID-19 hotline at 415-712-0313.
