Vaccination clinic requires no appointments and expands to include restaurant workers
DALY CITY – San Mateo County Board of Supervisors President David J. Canepa made the following statement today regarding the county’s first walk-up, no appointment needed free COVID vaccination clinic that expands to include restaurant workers. The clinic starts at 1 p.m., the Pacelli Event Center, 145 Lake Merced Blvd., Daly City. Those who are eligible include 65+, in-home supportive services, food/grocery and restaurant employees who are residents of Daly City.
“We are bringing shots in arms to one of the most impacted ZIP codes in the county,” Canepa said. “Our census tract data shows that Daly City leads the county with the most cases of COVID, so we are laser focusing our vaccination efforts to ensure we safeguard residents from this deadly disease right in the neighborhood they live in.”
Canepa and county staff canvassed the Westlake District Thursday notifying residents and workers in the area about today’s walk-up clinic (see pic below). Doses are limited to 250 at Friday’s clinic.
“Some people don’t have cars or can easily navigate the Web to make appointments,” Canepa said. “So, we are making it as convenient as possible for people who want the vaccine to get the vaccine. We are ready to do this every single day, we just need more doses from the state, especially if we want to target communities most at risk.”
Daly City has more than 6,000 residents who have contracted COVID during the pandemic, the most in San Mateo County. Go to https://www.smchealth.org/data-dashboard/cases-city to see case numbers by city and census tract.
