The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekly and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic response. We remain here for you.

 

Over Age 50? Get Boosted and Get Treated

Many of us over age 50 do not see ourselves as being at high risk, which may lead us to forego booster doses or treatment when infected. Marin’s data are clear that COVID-19 outcomes are most severe in those over age 50, even in  those who may be otherwise healthy.

We have two messages for every resident over age 50:

It’s time to get your updated booster dose. Fall and winter bring new risks for infection, and the new booster protects you against the Omicron variants that will be circulating over the coming months. To schedule an appointment for a free booster, visit our Vaccine Finder webpage.

If you get COVID, get treated. Treatment with a week of pills is highly effective at preventing bad outcomes, and is free and available through your doctor. Learn more about COVID-19 Treatments.

 

Flu Season is Here: Fight the Flu. Get Vaccinated!

October is typically the start of flu season in Marin. Marin County Public Health has reported that flu has begun to circulate locally, which signals the start of flu season. Now is the time to get the protection of the vaccine.

The flu is a contagious disease that can cause serious illness. Getting vaccinated against the flu is the best way to keep yourself and your family healthy and out of the hospital. CDPH recommends the annual flu vaccination for everyone six months of age and older.

Keep in mind, most Marin vaccine providers are offering both flu shots and the new COVID-19 boosters at the same time.

The general public can find flu shots at most pharmacies around Marin County.  Use MCPH’s Vaccine Finder tool or CDC’s Vaccine Finder tool to find your nearest flu shot.

Kaiser Permanente members can access FREE walk-in (no appointment necessary) flu shots at three North Bay locations:

  • San Rafael Medical Center (99 Montecillo Road, Lobby of Medical Office Building 2), Monday – Friday 1:30PM to 4:30PM
  • San Rafael Park (1650 Los Gamos Drive, Safety Conference Room on 2nd Floor), Monday - Friday 9:00AM to 5:00PM; Saturdays (October 8, 15, 29) 9:00AM to 4:00PM
  • Petaluma Medical Offices (3900 Lakeville Hwy, Conference Rooms C & D), Monday – Friday 9:00AM to 5:00PM; Saturdays (October 1, 22) 9:00AM to 4:00PM

Know your COVID-19 Community Level

The CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels are a tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in Marin or other community in which you live, work or visit.
