Update on St. Mary's Medical Center's COVID-19 Response and Vaccine Information: March 2021

St. Mary’s is not currently distributing COVID-19 vaccines to the public at our hospital, but we are partnering with the City of San Francisco, and a consortium of healthcare providers and organizations, at San Francisco’s Moscone South COVID-19 Vaccination Hub.

Visit MyTurn.CA.gov to answer a few questions to determine your eligibility. If you are not currently eligible to receive the vaccine, you can register for notifications about when it’s your turn and find out when appointments become available.

We know this is a difficult time for everyone who is anxious to get the vaccine, and we know you are experiencing pandemic fatigue after a full year of COVID upending our lives. While supplies are limited, the City, St. Mary’s, and other healthcare providers will continue working together to expand access as more vaccines become available to our area. Please continue to mask up, practice physical distancing, and avoid large gatherings.

Give Back to the Frontline Today

St. Mary’s Foundation has two funds dedicated to supporting the frontline – tax-deductible contributions in any amount will make a big impact. Donations to the Disaster Relief Fund will assist in the hospital’s ongoing pandemic response. At the moment, our most pressing need is to purchase supplies for St. Mary’s staff working every day to vaccinate the community at the Moscone Center.

Donations to our new Caregiver Wellness Fund will support initiatives to help alleviate the incredible stress our frontline and all of St. Mary’s essential workers have been under for a full year, and will continue to be until this pandemic is under control. 100% of all contributions go directly to the hospital’s programs and services – no funds are used for administrative purposes.

Please note that contributions to the Foundation will not be leveraged to receive the vaccine. Vaccination appointments are scheduled through MyTurn based on one’s eligibility.

St. Mary’s Medical Center’s dedicated frontline caregivers continue to serve our community in a safe, compassionate environment for anyone seeking medical care.
