Grand Opening of Northgate Booster Clinic 

Marin County Public Health, in partnership with Safeway, has launched a new specialized COVID-19 booster dose vaccination clinic at Northgate Mall. This site will be offering booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine and flu shots to eligible residents of our community. The decision to offer this special clinic stemmed from the recent statement by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine are now authorized for select populations.  

Presently, a booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine is available to people who completed their Pfizer vaccine series six or more months ago and are: 

After further review of available vaccine capacity across clinics and pharmacies around Marin, all people eligible for a Pfizer COVID-19 booster will be welcomed at the Northgate clinic beginning Thursday, September 30.  Advanced appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins will be welcomed as supply allows.  

Hours of operation this week: 

Wednesday: 1:00pm – 7:00pm 
Thursday – Saturday: 9:00am – 3:00pm 

Learn about eligibility requirements by visiting our Boosters & Third Doses page. Visit our Vaccine Finder page to see other available COVID-19 vaccination clinics in our community.  

 

State Requiring All Adult and Senior Care, Hospice Workers to Get COVID-19 Vaccine 

To provide additional protections against COVID-19 for vulnerable individuals across the state, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued a public health order late yesterday requiring workers in adult and senior care facilities and those employed in in-home direct care settings to be fully vaccinated. The order applies to all adult and senior care facilities, certain persons who provide In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS), certified home care aides, and Waiver Personal Care Services (WPCS) providers, hospice workers who provide services in the home or a licensed facility, and all employees, as well as service provider workers, who provide services through the state's regional centers that serve individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. 

The new vaccine requirement mirrors the state's vaccine requirement for health care workers announced on August 5. Workers covered by yesterday's order must be fully vaccinated by November 30, 2021. Continue reading the news release for more information.  

COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and free. Unvaccinated people age 12 and up and individuals who are eligible for boosters can go GetVaccinatedMarin.org or call (833) 422-4255 to schedule an appointment or find a walk-in clinic.
