San Francisco Is Now The First Major U.S. City To Require Proof Of Being Vaccinated

People in San Francisco will soon need to show proof of vaccination to be able to go to bars, restaurants and gyms after the city introduces a vaccine mandate.

The city said the health order is to protect residents from the ongoing spread of COVID-19, particularly among the unvaccinated, while being able to keep businesses and schools open. The mandate does not include curbside pickups and takeouts for food services.

The decision, announced by Mayor London Breed, also applies to indoor events of more than 1,000 people and will come into effect on August 20.

The mandate only applies to residents aged 12 and up but there are additional vaccination requirements for workers at adult day centres, residential homes, dental offices and pharmacists.

Mayor Breed said, "We know that for our city to bounce back from the pandemic and thrive, we need to use the best method we have to fight COVID-19 and that's vaccines."
