State To Expand Eligibility to 50+ Starting April 1 and All Individuals 16+ on April 15 Based on Expected Supply Increases

Today, Governor Gavin Newsom announced the State of California intends to expand vaccine eligibility to more people as early as next week in response to increasing vaccine supply:

  • Individuals aged 50+ will be eligible to make an appointment starting on April 1
  • Individuals 16+ will be eligible to make an appointment starting on April 15.

The State of California expects to be allocated approximately 2.5 million doses per week in the first half of April, and more than 3 million doses in the second half of April, which is about a 65% increase over what the state currently receives on a weekly basis.  Even with expanded vaccine supplies, it is expected to take several months to vaccinate all who want the vaccine.

“We are even closer to putting this pandemic behind us with today’s announcement and with vaccine supplies expected to increase dramatically in the months ahead,” said California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly. “However, we are not there yet. It will take time to vaccinate all eligible Californians. During this time, we must not let our guard down. It is important that we remain vigilant, continue to wear masks and follow public health guidance.”

What does this mean for Marin?

In-line with the state’s updated vaccine plan, Marin residents age 50 & older will be eligible to make appointments starting April 1.

Officials estimate 160,000 Marin residents currently qualify for Phases 1A or 1B of the vaccine rollout, with 110,615 having received at least one dose of vaccine so far. Opening-up additional groups of eligibility means 50,000 more Marin residents will be eligible for appointments by April 15.

Appointments are still in high demand given the small supply of vaccine arriving in Marin County each week. Remember, all Marin County providers offer vaccine regardless of insurance coverage (for example, you do not need to be a Kaiser member to be vaccinated by Kaiser).

Monitor our vaccine appointment page to review all vaccine providers in Marin, or sign up for vaccine notifications via the Marin County Public Health Vaccine Interest Form and the State of California’s MyTurn system.

 

FEMA to Help Pay Funeral Costs for COVID-19-related Deaths

In early April, FEMA will begin providing financial assistance for funeral expenses incurred after Jan. 20, 2020 for deaths related to coronavirus (COVID-19) to help ease some of the financial stress and burden caused by the pandemic. Up to $9,000 in COVID-19 funeral funding assistance is available to cover expenses for funeral services and internment or cremation. The Full eligibility criteria is included in FEMA’s policy guidance (PDF).   

In the coming weeks, a dedicated 800 number will be established to help individuals who apply. To apply, potential applicants will need to provide an official death certificate, funeral expense documents (e.g., receipts or contracts), and proof of funds received from other sources (e.g, burial insurance). More information regarding COVID-19 Funeral Assistance can be found on FEMA.gov.
