The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekdays and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you.  


Boosters! Boosters! Boosters!  

Johnson & Johnson and Moderna received positive news today when the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup (WSSSRW) officially recommended them for boosters in eligible groups.  Just yesterday, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, also signed off on the recommendation for Moderna and Johnson & Johnson booster shots from ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices).   

Moderna and Johnson & Johnson booster doses are already available at commercial pharmacies and Marin County Public Health vaccination sites.  Visit to find a vaccine location near you.  

The current recommendation by the WSSSRW, with endorsement from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration), are as follows: 



Individuals who completed a Moderna vaccination series at least 6 months ago are eligible for a booster dose if:  

Johnson & Johnson 

Booster shots are recommended for people who: 

  • Are at least 18 or older; and  
  • Received their Johnson &Johnson vaccine at least two months ago. 


Mixing & Matching  

The Workgroup also approved of the strategy known as “mixing and matching” where individuals eligible for boosters may choose any of the three available brands (Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna).   


How are Vaccine Recommendations Implemented in California? 

Below are the necessary steps that potential vaccines need to pass in order to be distributed in the state of California. The timeline for each stage of the final approval process tends to vary. This is the path that Moderna and Johnson & Johnson booster doses just completed, and this is the path that the Pfizer pediatric vaccine (for youth aged 5 to 11) will take in the coming weeks.  



Vaccination Opportunities in Marin 

There are numerous free COVID-19 vaccination opportunities taking place in Marin County. Those who are eligible, but haven’t completed their vaccination series yet, are advised to make a reservation online in advance. All clinics are available to anyone 12 & older. Our community has done a remarkable job at reducing the spread of COVID-19, thanks to those who have gotten fully vaccinated. We appreciate you doing your part.
