Hep Help 

Wednesday, Jul 19 1995
Hepatitis B vaccinations are free at San Francisco public health clinics if you are 18 and under, do not have health insurance, or the shots aren't covered by your provider. For those who do have insurance, ask your doctor for the shots -- three doses -- and call your insurer to check if immunizations are covered. Most HMOs will pay. For more information, call the San Francisco Public Health Department at 554-2830.

Paying out-of-pocket costs anywhere from $244 to $323 or more, depending on where you go, so make sure to shop around. (Most private doctors tack on administration fees, and some require hep B screening before they give shots.)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
