Marin Offers Third Dose Clinic for Severely Immunocompromised    

A free third dose COVID-19 mass vaccination clinic is scheduled for this Saturday, August 28th 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 medications that suppress the immune system 

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 doctor's 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.  

 

Bay Area Health Officers Reaffirm Support for Full In-Person School 

The local health jurisdictions joining Marin County in this statement are the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, and the city of Berkeley. 

As Bay Area Health Officials, we are excited that more than a million kindergarten through 12th-grade students are returning to school for in-person learning this fall across the wider San Francisco Bay Area. In the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, San Benito, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, and the City of Berkeley, many children are back in the classroom for the first time since early 2020. 

This summer’s surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalization due to the spread of the Delta variant is causing people to feel cautious about the return to school. We know that when rates of COVID are high in our communities, cases will appear at schools, just as they do in other settings. However, with effective protocols in place – including universal indoor masking, vaccinations of eligible persons, testing, good hand hygiene, staying home when sick and proper ventilation – the data shows that these multiple layers of defense can stop the spread of COVID in school settings. 

In considering the many benefits to children, Bay Area Health Officials reaffirm the joint Bay Area Health Officials’ statement from June, endorse the recent statement from Bay Area County Superintendents of Schools, and continue to firmly support a safe return to the classroom.
