Tracking the Booster Conversation: Where are We Now? 

Yesterday, we reported the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) amended the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to allow the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines to be used as booster shots. This was the first of a multi-step approval process for boosters of those brands to become available in Marin.  

The second step, review and approval by the CDC, is currently underway. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) today recommended aligning with the FDA’s authorization on Wednesday. CDC Director, Rochelle Walensky, is expected to sign off on the recommendation later today or tomorrow, making CDC’s endorsement official. 

Once CDC Director Walensky signs off on the booster recommendation, Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup (WSSSRW) will conduct its own independent review and approval process for California. Visit our boosters webpage for updates on when Moderna and Johnson & Johnson boosters may be available in Marin. 

 

RECAP: MCOE Pediatric Vaccination Speaker Panel in Spanish  

Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) hosted an interactive virtual panel yesterday, October 20, to address community questions and concerns regarding pediatric vaccinations. This was the second in a series of online forums hosted by MCOE which was presented on Zoom and this particular discussion was in Spanish. The topic of pediatric vaccines has been garnering a lot of attention in the community especially with the pending FDA approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11.    

The panel featured several local health and education experts:   

  • Dr. Lisa Santora, Deputy Public Health Officer  
  • Dr. Peter Simon, Lead Health Information Clinician, Marin Community Clinics  
  • Dr. Nicolas Mottola, Pediatrician, Kaiser Permanente  
  • Karina Arambula, Epidemiologist, Marin County DHHS Division of Public Health 
  • Lucia Martel-Dow, Board Trustee, San Rafael City Schools and Director, Immigrant Legal Resource Center 

The first MCOE forum took place on October 13 and the discussion was in English. You can watch a recording of the event in our Status Update from October 14.
