Progress continues with vaccinating frontline healthcare workers  

Marin County’s COVID-19 vaccination distribution began Wednesday, December 16 and has continued throughout the past three weeks. Today, Marin Public Health launched a vaccine clinic for staff of residential care facilities for the elderly, dialysis, hospice and home health care. This signals the launch of Tier 2 within Phase 1A of the vaccine prioritization framework set forth by the California Department of Public Health.

By the end of this week, nearly 12,000 doses will have been distributed to frontline health care workers in Marin. Marin Public Health hopes to complete Phase 1A by the end of the month but will need more vaccine supply from the State to achieve this goal.

Vaccine MythBusters: Know the Facts!

It's likely you've heard claims about COVID-19 vaccines on social media or from the people in your life. Knowing what is true about vaccines, and what isn’t, is crucial to community and business recovery. Over the next few days, we’ll bust some myths that exist about the COVID-19 vaccine and share facts that should be shared widely:

 

✔️ Fact: The COVID-19 Vaccine Will NOT Give You COVID-19  

It is impossible for someone to develop COVID-19 through the vaccine injection since the vaccines do not contain the virus. The goal for COVID-19 vaccines is to teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. Sometimes this process can cause side effects, such as fatigue, headache, soreness or redness at the injection site, and muscle or joint pain. These symptoms are normal and are a sign that the body is building immunity.
