“We are doing everything we can to remove barriers and make it as convenient and easy as possible for people to get vaccinated,” Board of Supervisors Chair Diane Burgis said. “Vaccines don’t just protect your health — they give peace of mind and let us be with our friend and families without worrying.”
More than 1.15 million vaccine doses have been administered countywide as of Friday morning, and 71.5 percent of eligible county residents have received at least one dose.READ MORE: Man Suffers Life-Threatening Injuries In Overnight San Francisco Chinatown Stabbing
