Plans in Works to Resume J&J Vaccinations 

Today, both the CDC and FDA approved continued use of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine after extensive review by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP). Marin County Public Health is making plans to resume use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine once the Western States Scientific Safety Review committee completes its own evaluation. We concur with ACIP’s findings that the benefits of the J&J vaccine far outweigh the risks and that we can continue to administer this life-saving vaccine safely.  

To date, Marin County Public Health has administered just over 1,000 doses of the J&J vaccine to Marin residents with no reported cases of blood clots. This type of adverse reaction is extremely rare with 15 reported cases nationwide out of 6.8 million doses administered. COVID-19 vaccine safety is a top priority for us. We will continue to monitor the situation and look to the CDC for any additional future guidance.  

The J&J vaccine is a valuable tool in our vaccination toolkit for reaching our highest risk populations where administering a two-shot regimen may be challenging. In addition, many Marin residents have requested the J&J vaccine because of the “one-and-done” ease of the product. While we do not have sufficient supply on hand to offer immediate, wide-spread access to the J&J vaccine, we look forward to offering it to our residents very soon. In the meantime, please review our frequently asked questions for more information about the J&J vaccine.  

The public is encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible. All vaccines are proven to be highly effective at preventing hospitalization or death from COVID-19. The longer you wait to get vaccinated, the greater the risk of contracting COVID-19. 

Standing Ovation for Volunteers 

We’re at the tail end of National Volunteers Week, and there are so many contributors who have helped in Marin with the COVID-19 response and deserve enthusiastic praise. The past year has been so challenging, but interns and volunteers – including members of the Marin Medical Reserve Corps (MMRC) and the Ombudsman staff volunteers – have been by our side throughout the pandemic every step of the way. 

As another example, student nursing interns have played a critical role. Here are some of the ways they have assisted us: 

  • Testing at Marin Center and mobile sites, including residential care facilities 
  • Support at vaccination clinics and mobile sites 
  • Contact tracing and investigations 
  • Motel staffing 
  • Telehealth program support for vulnerable residents 
  • Infection control planning, outreach, and education 
  • Schools team support 
  • Psychological assessments at the Marin County Jail 
  • Clinical support in behavioral health programs 
  • Help@Hand digital literacy home visiting program
