Free Third Dose COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic 

A free third dose COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic is scheduled for this Saturday, August 21st at the Marin Center (where the Marin County Fairgrounds is located). Thanks to a partnership with Safeway, this event advances Marin County Public Health’s goal of providing accessible vaccine boosters to immunocompromised members of our community.  

Marin County residents who are eligible for a third dose include those who are moderately to severely immunocompromised and who have either completed a Pfizer or Moderna vaccination series at least 28 days prior and have:  

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment, 
  • Received an organ or stem cell transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system, 
  • HIV infection, or 
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs 

It is recommended that community members who are eligible make an appointment as space is limited. Proof of completion of a vaccine series (COVID-19 vaccination card) is needed and attendees must attest that they qualify for a third dose (no doctors note needed). Attendees should bring ID, a health insurance card or medical coverage card .  

If you are eligible for a third COVID-19 dose but are unable to attend Saturday’s clinic, please visit our third dose informational webpage for alternative clinics. For more information, see news release.  

 

A Reminder About Masks at Schools 

Questions have been circulating in our community about current masking guidelines on K-12 campuses.  

As outlined by the CDPH, masks are required in all indoor facilities, including schools. Marin County Public Health and Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) urge our schools and families to add another layer of protection to their daily routine. We strongly recommend staff and students remain masked throughout school property, including while outdoors. 

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends mask use because of evidence showing the effectiveness of face covering in two ways. For infected people, masks reduce the risk they will infect another person. For people who are not infected, wearing a mask reduces the risk they will be infected, even if someone around them is spreading the virus. Because the risk of transmission between two people is lowest when both are masked (“mask on mask”), universal masking is regarded as the safest policy. CDC also recommends face coverings in outdoor settings for people who are unvaccinated and in sustained close contact with other people (e.g., playground activity). The American Association of Pediatrics echoes CDC’s recommendation and supports universal masking on school campuses to protect unvaccinated students from COVID-19 and reduce transmission, recognizing a significant portion of the student population remains unvaccinated either because of personal choice or ineligibility.
