UCSF is offering COVID-19 vaccines by appointment at the William J. Rutter Center on our Mission Bay campus and at City College of San Francisco. We’re no longer vaccinating people at our Parnassus Heights campus.
As of April 13, 2021, UCSF Health is following public health guidance to pause the use of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine at all of its sites. Learn more about this development.
We continue to provide the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Both require two doses and two appointments. When you get your first dose, we'll tell you how to schedule your second dose. Both offer excellent protection against severe COVID-19, and we recommend getting vaccinated when you are eligible.
Updates: Oakland Vaccination Clinic at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital
Expanded eligibility for high-risk patients:
All high-risk UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital patients ages 16 to 21 are now eligible for vaccinations, including those who live outside Alameda County. This includes county regional center and California Children’s Services (CCS) clients.
Easier vaccine appointment scheduling:
To make an appointment, call (415) 514-1196 and choose option 2. Stay on the line to speak to an operator, and ask to schedule a vaccine at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. We are no longer using MyTurn for vaccination appointments.

San Francisco Free MUNI Rides
