The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekdays and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you.  

Are Booster Shots Available In Marin?   

At this time, no vaccine provider in the United States is authorized to provide additional doses, or booster doses, for individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized Pfizer and Moderna vaccines as a 2-dose series and Janssen COVID-19 vaccine as a single dose against Covid-19. 

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has not recommended, and the FDA has not authorized, any additional doses for any circumstances. 

The role of booster shots for certain patients is under evaluation by the federal agencies responsible for vaccinations. Marin County is closely monitoring updates and will work to quickly make booster vaccines available if and when recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and authorized by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. 

Testing is Available! 

Testing is still an important tool in our COVID-19 prevention toolkit we can continue to use, whether we are vaccinated or not.   

Why? With COVID-19 testing, people who test positive and have symptoms can get care earlier, likely reducing disease severity.  That person’s contacts can be traced, and quarantine started earlier to reduce the chance of infecting other people.     

If you are not sure if you should be tested, the CDC offers a Coronavirus Self Checker tool which will assist in making decisions on when to seek testing and medical care.   

Visit our Testing Information webpage for a list of testing options in Marin County or contact your primary care physician. Community testing sites are available to Marin residents at no cost. Same day or next day testing appointments are offered through Curative and Logistics Health Incorporated (LHI).
