Vaccinations Begin for 12- to 15-year-olds 

Vaccinations started Thursday in Marin County for youths aged 12 to 15 now that authorization bodies have provided the go-ahead. Existing mass vaccination sites will offer evening and weekend hours for newly eligible youths, and mobile vaccination units will be dispatched to select locations, including schools in lower-income communities.  

The primary site for adolescent vaccinations will be the Larkspur Ferry Terminal, a drive-through vaccine site operated in partnership with Curative and the Golden Gate Bridge District. The site is open Sundays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and opened 6,000 appointments for the newly approved 12- to 15-age group on Thursday. In addition to the Larkspur location, a number of one-day clinics have been planned around the county.  Learn more about the vaccine and upcoming vaccine events at GetVaccinatedMarin.org.

CDC Updates Guidance On Masks: What Does it Mean for Marin?  

Today, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its guidance for people who are fully vaccinated. The guidance suggests people who are fully vaccinated no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance in any setting, except where required by federal, state or local laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.  

So, what does this mean for Marin residents and businesses? Marin County is bound by the mask mandate set forth by Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health. We anticipate CDPH will soon update its guidance to model CDC’s announcement. Until that happens, Marin’s mask guidance remains the same.   

  • If you are fully vaccinated (meaning 14 days after getting your second/final shot), you can go without masks outdoors EXCEPT when at a crowded place (e.g., sporting event, parade, festival, etc.).    

  • If you are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, can only go without masks outdoors if you can maintain at least 6 feet of distance from anyone who doesn’t live in your household. Otherwise, you should wear masks at all times outside of the home, especially in public places.  

Vaccinations are the primary way to emerge from the pandemic safely and are the ticket to lifting any restrictions on masks. This is a growing trend in our society: More and more activity and business guidance is beginning to include provisions for fully vaccinated individuals versus unvaccinated individuals.  So, while we wait for CDPH to update its guidance, consider getting vaccinated so you can take part in the activities allowed for vaccinated individuals, and help Marin get closer to achieving community immunity. You can find your closest vaccination site by visiting GetVaccinatedMarin.org.  

  

CDC OKs Coadministration of Vaccines 

On May 12, the CDC gave medical providers the green light to provide COVID-19 vaccines to patients as the same time as other vaccines, or give without regard to the timing of other vaccinations. Previously, doctors had been advised to avoid giving coronavirus vaccine within two weeks of any other vaccine. 

This is an important change for pediatricians because children may be able to get more than one vaccine when they visit. In a recent report, the CDC noted that immunizations have fallen due to the pandemic, especially among adolescents. This includes routine immunizations given to children, including vaccinations against influenza, tetanus, meningitis, and human papillomavirus (HPV).   

Youths age 12 and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and many vaccine providers in Marin are providing options for adolescents.  Visit GetVaccinatedMarin.org for more details.
