SF leaders say more monkeypox vaccines are needed

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — It is now known how many monkeypox vaccines San Francisco county will be receiving. The city’s health department confirmed they are expecting a shipment of about 4,100 vaccines this coming week.

Based on the latest numbers, San Francisco has about 32 percent of the cases in California. The city is receiving about 28 percent of the state’s vaccine allotment.

A little over 4 thousand vaccines feels like a slap in the face,” said Tyler Termeer who is CEO of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.
