The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is three times per week and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you. 

 

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement for Schools Delayed 

California Department of Public Health (CDPH) recently announced they will delay any implementation of requirements that California school children be vaccinated against COVID-19 until fall 2023 at the earliest. Because the vaccines are still under emergency use authorization (EUA) by the FDA, this delay will allow time for their full approval and implementation of the order.  

Upon full approval by the FDA, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will consider the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) prior to implementing a school vaccine requirement. 

MCPH continues to recommend vaccinations as the best form of protection for eligible residents of all ages. Currently 73% of Marin County children ages 5-11 have completed their primary vaccine series. While this is among the highest in the state, Marin County continues to focus on closing the remaining gaps across all communities.  

For more information see the CDPH statement.  

 

Save the Date: Pediatric COVID Vaccination Virtual Forum 

Vaccines are our best hope to end the COVID pandemic. COVID vaccine is available for children ages 5 and up, and boosters are now authorized for those 12 years and older. Vaccines for children ages 6 months and up may be authorized next. Marin County is among the most highly vaccinated area in the nation. But many questions and concerns remain when it comes to vaccinating our children.  

Save the date for a virtual presentation from Marin Healthcare District where local medical specialists will discuss:   

  • Why children and teens should get vaccinated  
  • Upcoming COVID vaccinations for 2–4-year-olds and how to support them during their vaccination  
  • How parents and caregivers can determine if toddlers are having side effects  
  • Booster recommendation for children under 18  
  • Vaccine requirements in schools  
  • Variants and levels of contagion  
  • Emergency Room and clinical treatment  
  • Immunocompromised children  

There will also be time for Q&A at the end of the presentation. Featured speakers include:  

  • Lisa Santora, MD Deputy Health Officer, Marin Public Health   
  • Shandra Taylor, MS, CCLS Child Life Specialist   
  • Catherine Taylor, ARDMS President, “Ouchless ER” Project
