San Francisco authorities confirmed Sunday that vaccinations at Moscone Center vaccination site will pause for a week due to lack of supply.
In a statement, officials said the vaccine supply coming to the city is “limited, inconsistent, and unpredictable, making vaccine rollout difficult and denying San Franciscans this potentially life-saving intervention.”
Recently, vaccination sites opened at Moscone Center and City College, thus aiding in vaccinating 31% of the 65 and older population. San Francisco has the capacity to administer more than 10,000 vaccines per day but lack the vaccine supply, officials said.
So far, the site has averaged 7,400 vaccines per day at the site.
Vaccinations at City College will resume Friday for second doses only.
A third site opening the the Bayview area will operate far under capacity.
As of February 13, San Francisco received 262,000 doses and administered more than 190,000 doses to San Franciscans and surrounding Bay Area residents, according to officials.
