    You can register by phone to have your vaccination injection at the LightHouse location. It will be open each Friday for six weeks starting on April 2nd, for many of you we know this will be welcome news as you have visited us many times and the space will be familiar to you. For those new to the LightHouse, we aim to make this experience as smooth and seamless as we possibly can.

    To register to attend the LightHouse vaccination clinic at 1155 Market Street, you will first need to make an appointment by calling 628-652-2700

    On that call you will be able to make your first and second appointment for the vaccination at the LightHouse site.

    When you call this number, you will be asked for some basic personal information and will be given an appointment time.

    This line is open and staffed from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm Monday to Friday.

    Voicemail messages can be left for call back outside of these hours.

    This line is available to speakers of both Spanish and English.

    Address: LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired – San Francisco headquarters, 1155 Market Street, 10th floor, San Francisco CA 94102

    Getting to Your Appointment

    The LightHouse Headquarters is located on 1155 Market Street between 7th and 8th streets.

    The closest public transit is Civic Center Bart station and the most efficient exit is it the civic center/United Nations Plaza  exit

    The closest bus stops are Jones and 6th and Orpheum Theater. People using Rideshare apps can ask to be dropped on the Eastern corner of 7th and Market.

    LightHouse will have volunteers available to meet people outside of 1155 Market Street. They will then guide you to the lobby where your information will be checked. All volunteers will practice social distancing and will be wearing masks.

    You will then be directed to the elevator where the number for the 10th floor will be pressed for you so touching of elevator controls can be limited to help keep everybody safe.

    Surfaces will be regularly cleaned and disinfected (with Safer Choice products made and sold by the LightHouse).

    The number of people who can ride an elevator at the same time will be restricted to a designated number by the site manager.

    Once on the 10th floor, another group of friendly volunteers will show you where to wait for your vaccination.

    After your injection, you will wait for 15 minutes before being shown back to the lobby and out of the building. Volunteers will be available to help locate Ride Shares if required.

    The LightHouse is proud to be able to offer our headquarters as a central, easy, and welcoming location for our extended community to vaccinate.
