Vaccine Walk-in Appointments Open 

Most vaccine providers across the county are now accepting walk-ins, including all Marin Public Health vaccination clinics. Whether you’re looking for a booster for yourself, a first dose for your child, or any other authorized COVID-19 vaccine there are plenty of open spaces this weekend at our free vaccine clinics. Unvaccinated and unboosted residents are at higher risk for infection and serious illness. There has never been an easier time to get vaccinated!  

Visit our Vaccine Finder page for the complete schedule of upcoming vaccination clinics.  
 

What Actions Can You Take to Protect Our Community? 

During the past three weeks, California has had over 1.9 million new cases of COVID-19. We have now surpassed 7 million cases at the state level. This translates to roughly 18% of California residents who have been diagnosed with COVID over the course of the pandemic, and 5% of those cases occurred this month. Within that same time frame, Marin County has seen over 6,200 new cases.  

What can you do right now to prevent further spread in our community?  

  • Boosters: Marin continues to be the among the most highly boosted counties in California. Still, nearly half of our population has not yet obtained the protection of a booster dose. Higher booster rates will decrease the number of breakthrough infections and shorten the omicron surge.  

  • Pediatric Vaccines: We have made great strides in vaccinating our 5- to 11- year-old age group with 75% of them being vaccinated. This also means that over 25% of students in most elementary schools are not optimally protected from the virus.  

Even though the virus continues to circulate within our community and case counts remain high, we still have the same core resources that have kept us safe during previous surges.  

  • Vaccination remains the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19, including against the Omicron and Delta variants. Making sure that all eligible members of your household are vaccinated will help increase your family’s protection from possible infection.  

  • Testing for COVID-19 is an important way to stop a potential spread of the virus and offers peace of mind before or after attending events. Visit our Testing Page to find a testing provider near you.  

  • Wearing a well-fitted mask in indoor public spaces or outdoors where social distancing isn’t possible offers an important extra layer of defense. Learn how to get the most of your mask here.  

  • Stay home when sick: Even of you don’t have access to a test, avoiding contact with others by staying home when you feel sick will protect classmates, friends, workmates, and the wider community.  

  • Washing your hands and being aware of when we want to rub our eyes, nose, and mouth are important for keeping us safe. Basic hand hygiene goes a long way to ensure that we are preventing the spread of germs. Here’s a refresher on how to properly and effectively wash hands.
