The San Francisco Department of Public Health has issued an update on CDC’s announcement on indoor unmasking for the fully vaccinated, and CA’s decision to wait until June 15 to adopt:
While 76% of our eligible population has received at least one dose, there are still many people in our city who have to get vaccinated. The CDC’s announcement is proof that the COVID-19 vaccines are effective with one study showing that the two-dose Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are 94% effective in preventing symptomatic illness in those who were fully vaccinated. However, there are still indoor public spaces where unvaccinated people may still be at risk.
We need every eligible person to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Appointments are widely available throughout the City. Visit sf.gov/getvaccinated.
