Appointments are available and vaccines are free throughout the Mission. Already, 63 percent of the residents in Mission have been vaccinated, putting the Mission at 13th of the city’s 38 neighborhoods.

Once fully vaccinated, residents can walk outside without a mask, the San Francisco Department of Public Health announced Monday.

Diane Jones, a leader of the efforts at the Capp Street vaccination site, said it makes sense for adults to get vaccinated now and avoid the rush expected once vaccines open to 12-15 year-olds. The latter will happen as early as next week.

Walk up and make an appointment Sunday through Wednesday at 24th and Capp streets, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or at 18th and Shotwell streets, Thursday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

You can also walk up to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital seven days a week and find a spot there from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Or, visit the Wellness Pharmacy at La Taza’s outdoor seating area at 2475 Mission St. on weekday afternoons from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Sign-ups are also being taken at the Food Hub on Alabama Street Monday, Wednesday and Friday during food distribution.

Here are more walk-up sites outside of the Mission. Want to go to the larger vaccine sites? You can register here. En español.

Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
