A two-day vaccination clinic at San Francisco International Airport offers COVID-19 vaccinations to all San Mateo County residents aged 65 and over, regardless of insurance.
The clinic takes place on Wednesdays and Fridays in the SFO long-term parking garage, 806 S. Airport Blvd. instead of.
The appointments are available on Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
People must register in advance and bring photo ID with their date of birth. Walk-up registration is not possible, and people who do not meet the admission criteria will be turned away or their appointments canceled, according to the district.
The SFO clinic, which began Feb. 12, was previously restricted to residents falling under the San Mateo health plan or those who have no other access to the vaccine. On Sunday, district officials decided to extend the reach of the clinic to fill the remaining appointments.
Preston Merchant, a spokesman for San Mateo County Health, said the county expects 12,000 residents will be vaccinated at the SFO clinic by the end of Friday.
As of Monday, 109,793 residents of the district had received at least the first dose of the vaccine, which corresponds to 17.1% of people aged 16 and over in the district.
San Mateo County is currently focused on vaccinating health care workers and those 65 and over. Vaccination for the next eligible groups – teachers, childcare workers, farm workers, and first aiders – will begin on February 22nd, the county announced last week.
