Vaccine Update: Healthcare Worker Vaccinations Continue

Vaccine operations are in full swing to provide much needed vaccinations to frontline health care workers. Marin Public Health’s vaccine clinic (also referred to as a “Point of Dispensing”) has averaged approximately 800 vaccinations per day over the past two days and will expand this next week as more doses become available.  In addition, Marin Public Health requested additional doses from the State of California beyond our normal allocation because of our rapid utilization and successful distribution of doses we’ve received so far.

Marin Public Health is prioritizing vaccination distribution as defined by the California Department of Public Health. Currently, vaccinations are limited to frontline healthcare personnel, as defined in Tiers 1 & 2 of Phase 1A of the state’s framework.

 

 

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: Less Than 0.5% Experience Severe Vaccine Side Effects 

In the same trials, vaccines resulted in side effects that were generally mild to moderate and lasted no more than a couple of days. Symptoms included irritation at the injection point of the arm, chills, fatigue, muscle soreness and fever. Less than 0.5% of trial participants experienced severe symptoms as an allergic reaction to the vaccines. Remember, these symptoms are normal for any vaccine and are a sign that the body is building immunity.
