COVID-19 Testing Expanded

Testing plays a major role in fighting COVID-19 — for your health, the health of our communities, and to help safely reopen businesses, schools, and more. As an important part of Kaiser Permanente’s ongoing commitment to our members and communities, we have recently expanded our COVID-19 testing capacity.

Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones

2020-21 Flu Season – Flu clinics now open

The flu is more serious than the common cold. Protect yourself and your loved ones from serious health risks by getting your annual no cost flu shot. For your safety and convenience, flu vaccinations are now available at the locations below.


We are experiencing high demand for flu vaccinations in some areas and are working to avoid long lines.

To minimize your wait times, help ease vehicle congestion, and ensure the safety of those visiting our facilities, please follow these guidelines when coming for your flu shot:

  • Please do not block fire zones, disabled parking spaces, or any facility entrances.
  • If you have flexibility, please keep in mind that the drive-through clinic in South San Francisco will be open through November 27 and the family walk-up clinic in Daly City will be open through November 20.
  • Members may also receive a flu vaccine during a scheduled clinic appointment at any of our locations.
  • Please wear a mask when you arrive at our facilities to get your flu shot.
  • We love pets, but if there is one in your car you will need to get out of your car for your shot. Please help us save time and stay safe by leaving your pet at home if possible.
