San Francisco is now offering appointments and drop-in COVID-19 vaccinations to residents in the Ocean View, Merced Heights and Ingleside neighborhoods.

Located on Broad Street between Plymouth and San Jose avenues, the site is being operated in partnership with the Southwest Community Corporation/I.T. Bookman Community Center and Visit Healthcare, according to a press release from the city’s Joint Information Center.

District 11 Supervisor Ahsha Safaí and Director of Health Dr. Grant Colfax gathered with the community organizations on Wednesday to officially launch the site.

It’s San Francisco’s sixth neighborhood vaccination site for granting equitable vaccine access to communities disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the release.

The site, located at 50 Broad St. for OMI residents 18 and older, will be open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Residents may schedule appointments by calling the OMI COVID-19 Hotline at (415) 712-0313 and email questions to covid19@itbookmancenter.org.

Muni and Paratransit are free for those traveling to and from the site for a COVID-19 vaccination, and it’s reachable via the 24 bus line and M Ocean View light rail line. SFMTA is providing taxi service for those with an Essential Trip Card; for more information, visit sfmta.com/COVID and sfmta.com/Paratransit.
