The Bay Area has a few more COVID vaccination options.
Both Sutter Health and UCSF are offering shots by appointment to members as young as 65, even in counties that are still limiting eligibility to 75 and over. That's because the hospital systems get their supply directly from the state, which lowered the standard to 65 a few weeks ago. Hospital officials say they are following the state standard to cut down on the confusion and discrepancies, but it just means more people are competing for the still-limited supply of vaccines.
Meanwhile, San Francisco has opened Moscone Center as a daily mass vaccination site for residents ages 65-plus with appointments. And Alameda County is now operating a drive-up facility at Golden Gate Fields racetrack for residents 75 and over, but it's only open Friday through Monday.
