During September and October, the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District partnered with SF Department of Public Health to sponsor four “pop-up” events in Eagle Plaza, at which we offered free MPX vaccinations. At those events, 408 first and second doses of MPX vaccine were administered. In addition, our last one administered 34 COVID boosts and 33 flu vaccines. Many additional vaccinations were administered at the Folsom and Bearrison Street Fairs.
Special kudos to Oscar Macias at DPH for coordinating these efforts with us. We are also grateful to BayPLS, Mission Wellness Pharmacy, the SF Eagle, AGUILAS, and the volunteers working line control for their participation in this effort, and are pleased and proud to have contributed to the community effort to control MPX.
