Vaccination Time!

No one reading this needs to be reminded of the importance of being vaccinated against COVID-19.  It’s essential for your personal health and safety, it’s essential to our community, and now it’s essential if you want to get a drink.

Throughout SOMA (and elsewhere), bars, clubs, private parties and others are increasingly requiring patrons to provide proof of vaccination, or extremely recent negative COVID-19 test results.   (See the SF Eagle’s detailed page on the subject.)

So when you visit SOMA, please bring proof of vaccination.  The original paper vaccination record will do, but for faster service (and to make life easy for the door personnel), consider getting an official State of California Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record right on your smartphone.

And if you aren’t yet vaccinated, please click here for info on how you can get it.  It’s free, it’s easy to get, it’s safe, and, oh yes, it might just save your life.
