Marin to Begin Offering Vaccine to Educators, Other Essential Workers

Having vaccinated more than 60% of all Marin County residents above age 65, Marin County is moving to provide COVID-19 vaccine to educators, food service workers, and other essential workers, following the regulations laid out in the California state vaccination plan.

Starting February 24, all residents who fall into Tier 1 of the current phase of the state plan are eligible to schedule appointments for vaccinations. The following sectors are eligible for vaccinations:

While workers in the five sectors are now eligible to receive a vaccine anywhere in the Bay Area, vaccine appointments remain in limited supply. Vaccine providers remain challenged by limited allocations from state and federal sources. Measures are being taken to reserve doses for those at highest risk, and some health care providers may continue to prioritize vaccine for patients who are 65 and older and have not yet had an opportunity to be vaccinated.

Continuing reading the news release for more details.

 

Costco and Walgreens join Marin’s Vaccine Provider Line-up

Starting this week, Marin county residents have five new locations to access the COVID-19 vaccine. Walgreens pharmacy, as part of the federal retail pharmacy program, is now offering COVID-19 vaccine appointments in Mill Valley, San Anselmo and two locations in San Rafael. In addition, Costco will provide vaccines at its location in Novato.

Vaccinations are by appointment only. Appointments must be made online. Please do not contact an individual store for an appointment. Visit our Vaccination Options webpage for a full list of vaccine providers in Marin County and details on how to make an appointment.

 

Taking public transit to your vaccine appointment? Your ride is FREE!

Starting February 24, Marin Transit, SMART, and Golden Gate Transit and Ferry will provide free transit trips to and from vaccination sites for community members with appointments. All three agencies are offering free rides by bus, train, and boat in both directions to mass vaccination sites, hospitals, or anywhere else that is offering vaccinations.

In addition, Marin Transit will offer a shuttle to and from the Larkspur SMART station to the Ferry Terminal vaccine site for those with mobility issues. Riders can follow the directional signage at the exit of the platform leading to the shuttle pickup area. Those who prefer to walk from the station are permitted to access the site on foot or by bike.

To receive a free ride, customers should be ready to show physical or digital confirmation of their same-day vaccine appointment at time of boarding. This joint effort by Marin County transit agencies is aimed at reducing transportation and cost barriers for community members to receive the vaccine.

SMART operates regular service Monday through Friday. Plan your schedule online or by calling 511 or (707) 794-3330, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, except holidays.
