Hospitals, Clinics & Public Health Prepare for Vaccine Rollout’s Next Phase

Marin County’s network of health care providers and supportive agencies are working closely to prepare to transition to Phase 1B of the COVID-19 vaccination framework later this month, offering vaccinations to frontline essential workers and those aged 65 and over.

Marin Public Health, MarinHealth, Kaiser Permanente, Novato Community Hospital, and Marin Community Clinics have committed to a coordinated strategy as the County moves from vaccinating only health care workers to covering the wider community. A variety of points of distribution (PODs) are being planned, and vaccination opportunities will be based on the individual’s health care provider or occupation. Options for accessing the vaccine across Marin will be announced when Phase 1B formally opens later this month.

Vaccination efforts are facing the combined challenges of a fragile vaccine (made of genetic material), associated logistical challenges, and limited supplies as they work to expand across the county. However, the partnership of medical providers remains committed to expedite the distribution in a safe and efficient way.

“Everyone in Marin will have their turn,” said Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County’s Public Health Officer. “But with the expansion of this next phase to all residents aged 65 and older, more than one third of our population is in the current tier. Given the current supply of vaccine, it will take several weeks to get to the next phase. If healthy individuals over the age of 65 and others in this group can hold back a few weeks to allow the more vulnerable to be vaccinated first, we encourage them to do so.”

The vaccine is an important step toward achieving immunity for individuals, and for the county as a whole to bring the COVID-19 pandemic to an end. However, it does not replace the need for continued mask wearing, physical distancing, and good hand hygiene. Health leaders want to remind everyone to continue practicing those measures in the weeks ahead.  [CONTINUE READING NEWS RELEASE]
