SAN MATEO (BCN) – Wednesday marked the last day that first-dose COVID-19 vaccinations will take place at the San Mateo County Event Center, with abundant vaccine supply meaning that anyone 12 and older in the county can get vaccinated.
County Manager Mike Callagy made the announcement during a media briefing Wednesday. He added that there will be opportunities for second-dose vaccinations at the San Francisco International Airport mass vaccination site since the county fair takes place in early June at the Event Center.READ MORE: UPDATE: San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf Hit-And-Run Victim Identified As Hotel Worker Headed Home
