SF City Health Director Makes Decisions on Vaccination Guidelines – Bay Area News

“We hope this news offers further incentive for people to get vaccinated as soon as possible,” Colfax said. “We want to thank everyone for their ongoing cooperation and compliance with the state’s guidance. Our City’s commitment to following the health guidelines has resulted in the lowest death rate from COVID-19 of any major city in the country. With more people getting vaccinated every day, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer. We just need everyone to hang in there and keep up the good work.” Per the state’s guidance, when visiting with unvaccinated individuals at high risk for severe COVID-19 disease, vaccinated people should continue to wear masks and practice physical distancing.

However, Colfax explained that even vaccinated people “may carry and transmit the disease, so it’s still very important that individuals consider the risk that exposure may have on those around them.” Currently, individuals 16 and older are eligible to get vaccinated in San Francisco.

For that reason, Colfax said face coverings, physical distancing, hand washing and limiting indoor activities and gatherings with people outside one’s household remain as important as ever, especially with the increased prevalence of more contagious variants in San Francisco. Colfax added that for the purposes of this guidance, individuals are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 two weeks after they have received the second dose in a two-dose series of Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna, or two weeks after they have received a single-dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
