Larkspur Ferry Terminal Vaccination Clinic Ends Operations 

Marin County’s last mass vaccination point of distribution (POD) is closing Thursday, June 17, after a successful run that started in late February. Marin County Public Health partnered with the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway, and Transportation District, Curative, local fire agencies, and other contributors to operate the temporary facility in the terminal’s parking lot off Sir Francis Drake Boulevard.  

Public Health estimated that nearly 60,000 doses were delivered at the drive-through location over almost fourth months of operation. This video serves as a thank-you to everyone who helped run the facility and those who chose to get vaccinated there.

Marin Fully Aligns with State Framework 

As of the June 15 state wide reopening, Marin County no longer has any local COVID-19-related health orders that restrict activities in residents’ lives or in business operations. Marin is now fully aligned with the State of California’s new Beyond the Blueprint framework that went into effect June 15 and eliminated the color-coded tier system for counties.  

Marin is aligned with the state’s face covering mandate, which states that everyone should wear a mask in the following settings even if fully vaccinated: 

  • on public transit and in transit hubs, such as airports, train and subway stations, and ferry landings 

  • indoors in schools, childcare, and other youth settings 

  • health care settings and long-term care facilities 

  • correctional facilities and detention centers 

  • homeless and emergency shelters and cooling centers

Addressing Vaccine Concerns from Teens & Parents 

California State Epidemiologist Dr. Erica Pan recently penned a column as guest author in Governor Gavin Newsom’s “On the Record” series. In the column, Pan addresses potential questions and concerns teens and their parents or guardians may have about the COVID-19 vaccine. Pan explains that clinical trials have proven the vaccine to be safe and effective for youths in this age group, and that the technology used to make the vaccine has been developed over the past 20 years. 

A parent of two eligible adolescents, Pan discusses the stress and isolation youths have experienced during the pandemic and how getting vaccinated is a critical step to safely spending time with friends and family. Read the column

In Other News: Beat the Heat 

The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory and an excessive heat warning for much of the Bay Area beginning Wednesday, with temperatures expected in the 90s and 100s. Marin was not included in the advisory based on the forecast and did not meet the criteria to open cooling centers. 

However, heat affects everyone differently. Marin residents should take precautions to prevent serious health effects for heat-related illnesses. Stay cool, stay hydrated, and stay informed. Check on friends, family, and neighbors who are sensitive to heat. Visit the Marin County Department of Health and Human Services website for heat safety tips.
