SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The San Francisco Department of Public Health on Wednesday announced it would be partnering with the San Francisco Giants to give out vouchers for game tickets to those receiving their first COVID vaccine.

The partnership with the Giants is aimed at getting as many San Francisco residents vaccinated against COVID-19 as possible. The program will begin on Friday, June 25, at a number of the city’s designated vaccination sites.

People who get their first COVID vaccination will receive a voucher for two complimentary tickets for a Giants game between July and September. The vouchers will be handed out on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. The program is part of Major League Baseball’s current “Vaccinate at the Plate” campaign to increase national vaccination rates.

“San Francisco has led the nation in our effort to vaccinate our residents by making vaccines available, accessible, and convenient,” said Mayor London Breed. “While we’re proud to have been the first major city in the country to administer at least one dose to 80% of our eligible residents, we’re not going to slow down our efforts to reach each and every San Franciscan.”

The release issued by the San Francisco Department of Public Health noted that the city’s reopening and recovery has largely been due to the successful rollout of vaccines, which has driven down case rates, hospitalizations and community spread. Currently, 81% of San Franciscans eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination have received at least one dose. San Francisco is the first major city in the nation to reach that milestone.

The release went on to note that as of June 20, 72% of San Francisco’s eligible population are fully vaccinated and 81% of those 65 and over are fully vaccinated. There are still some disparities persisting in the city, with the percentage of Black/African American and Latinx populations receiving at least one dose standing at 57% and 69%, respectively.

“Every eligible person who gets vaccinated is making San Francisco safer for themselves and everyone else,” said SF Director of Public Health Dr. Grant Colfax. “We thank the San Francisco Giants for joining the Public Health Department, our health providers and our community partners as we work to vaccinate all of our residents.”
