COVID-19 Death Illustrates Protection of Vaccine 

After a record one month without any local COVID-19 deaths, Marin County Public Health has confirmed that an unvaccinated resident over age 65 has died from COVID 19. The resident had been living independently when hospitalized for shortness of breath last week.  This is the first COVID-19-related death in Marin since April 17. 

Residents over age 65 became eligible for vaccinations in Marin on February 15, and an estimated 98% of Marin residents in that age group have received at least one dose of vaccine. Consequently, deaths among the 65-and-older age group have taken a sharp decline. Approximately 93% of Marin COVID-19 cases since March 1 have been among people who are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated. it’s especially hard to see someone pass at this stage, knowing we have an effective tool to prevent outcomes like this,” said Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County’s Public Health Officer.
