SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – Where are the vaccines?

San Francisco leaders tell KRON4 they still haven’t seen a single dose of the vaccine come to their underserved communities after the state promised to set aside a supply for these neighborhoods last week.

SF Supervisor Matt Haney represents District 6 which includes the Tenderloin neighborhood and Treasure Island, which are the only two zip codes in the city that made the state’s new vaccine equity priority list.

“High poverty. They have a lot of Black and Latino residents. They’ve had high case rates,” Supervisory Haney said.

Over on Treasure Island, Haney says only 8% of residents are vaccinated, the lowest per capita vaccination rate of a neighborhood in the city.

While the state’s plan is supposed to set aside 40% of vaccines to underserved communities across the state, Haney says no vaccines have made their way to these neighborhoods thus far and access remains poor.
