COVID-19 vaccines are coming to Oakland this week

I guess the idea you are describing especially makes sense if you are pursuing a goal of Covid eradication, rather than a goal of accepting that Covid will spread, but managing hospital capacity. The bay area seems to have adopted more of the first goal, while the rest of the country seems to have adopted more of the second. I'll leave the discussion of how plausible either goal is for another conversation.

Because the bay-area is pursuing more of a "zero-tolerance" policy for Covid, discussing immunity through infection is bad because it doesn't help that regional health goal.

My sister had Covid two months ago and now makes $100 twice a week donating plasma with antibodies. I guess there are some perverse incentives out there.
