Missed Your Second Shot? Public Health can Help  

Marin County continues to make great vaccination progress and is the top county in the state in terms of the percentage of eligible residents receiving at least one dose of the vaccine (82.9%). However, new data reveals that out of nearly 174,000 local people who have received at least one dose of the vaccine, 5,418 (or 3%) have missed their second shot with more than six weeks passing since the initial dose.

It may be obvious, but a two dose vaccine regimen is most effected when both doses are administered. The Pfizer vaccine is only 50% effective after one dose, but is nearly 95% effective two weeks after the second dose is given. Skipping the second dose of a COVID-19 vaccination series reduces efficacy and, potentially, the lifespan of your immunity.

Anyone who missed their second vaccine can obtain a second dose shot at any of Marin County Public Health’s mass vaccine sites, regardless of where they obtained their first dose.  No appointment required, just bring your vaccination card:

  • Tuesday – Saturday, 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM:  Marin Center (20 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael)
  • Wednesday – Friday, 4:00 PM to 7:45 PM: Marin Health and Wellness Center (3240 Kerner Blvd, San Rafael)

In addition, many commercial pharmacies provide second doses, even if you obtained your first dose from a different provider. Review available vaccine sites in Marin by visiting


Do Your Handwashing Skills Pass the Test?

Handwashing is a fundamental task to help stop COVID-19, so specialists the Environmental Health Division of our Marin County Community Development Agency used bluelight technology to demonstrate how a typical, quick, “do it with your eyes closed” handwashing session just doesn’t cut it. Check out how much bacteria remains on the hands during this demonstration and challenge yourself to become a world-class handwashing champion.
