Drive-Through Vaccinations Coming to Marin

A new drive-through vaccination location will soon open in Marin County, providing easier access to a COVID-19 shot for older adults and other Marin residents who cannot navigate walk-through sites due to mobility issues. 

The drive-through clinic will be located at the Larkspur Landing ferry terminal and will “soft launch” on Sunday, February 21, providing 200 COVID-19 vaccinations per day the first week of operations. Eventually, the site will expand to offer up to 1,500 doses per day.

The County of Marin has partnered with Curative and the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District – which operates the ferry terminal – to open the new point of dispensing (POD) site. Personnel from Marin County fire agencies will also assist with POD staffing.

Appointments are required and are limited to Marin residents age 65 and older who can show proof of age and residency. Appointments will for the new site will go live Saturday, February 20, and will be accessible from Marin County Public Health’s vaccination options webpage.

Winter Storms in Texas Delay Vaccine Shipments, New Appointments

Widespread winter storms across the U.S. have delayed vaccine shipments and deliveries planned for this week. The severe weather disrupted service at both FedEx and UPS package hubs in the Southern U.S., which serve as vaccine shipping hubs for several states.

Unfortunately, Marin County was among the many jurisdictions impacted by delayed shipments. Marin County Public Health was forced to reschedule some first and second dose appointments scheduled for February 18-19 after a shipment of Moderna doses failed to arrive due to storm -related delays. In addition, some Marin vaccine partners, including Rite Aid and Safeway pharmacies, have been affected by vaccine shipment interruptions.

At this time, there is no confirmation as to when the delayed shipments will arrive in Marin. Until that date is known, Marin County Public Health is unable to release new appointments for the week of February 22. However, we are committed to quickly distributing the vaccine supply as soon as it arrives.  We will update our vaccination options webpage with information on when the appointments will be available as soon as we can. Thank you for your understanding.
