Marin Medical Reserve Corps Named Volunteer Team of the Year 

The Marin Medical Reserve Corps (MMRC) was recognized as Volunteer Team of the Year earlier this week by the Marin County Board of Supervisors, for their crucial support in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. Long before vaccines were available, MMRC volunteers contributed their skills to answer call-center phones, conduct contact investigations, support testing, and reach out to isolated residents. When vaccines became available, volunteers immediately began helping with distribution. A significant portion of this team of 800-plus healthcare professionals has contributed “21,000 hours, and counting, for COVID-19 operations alone,” said team coordinator Anne Carta of HHS. MMRC volunteers train regularly and stand ready to respond to medical emergencies and disasters. Their devotion to health and safety has played a BIG role in Marin County’s pandemic response.  

Thank you, Marin Medical Reserve Corps!

Vaccination Dashboard now Includes Pediatrics 

You may have noticed that the percentages in our vaccination data dashboard have dropped. Our one dose and fully vaccinated numbers are lower because the dashboard now reflects the expansion of pediatric eligibility (ages 5 to 11) in Marin County. Yesterday, our dashboard’s data presented figures based on the previous age eligibility of 12 and above, whereas now it’s 5 and above. This update keeps our data current and transparent as it includes the newly eligible age group of 5 to 11 year olds within these totals. 

Stay tuned, as next week we will update our COVID-19 Outcomes by Vaccination (Rate & Risk) and Geography dashboards as well.  

 

Marin Community Recognized by NY Times for High Vaccination Rate 

Well done, Marin! In case you missed it, Marin County was recognized in today’s New York Times for our successful vaccination campaign. The article reviewed the amazing transformation of our community, from a “hotbed for anti-vaccine sentiment,” to one of the highest COVID-19 vaccinated counties in the United States. 

As we prepare to rollout pediatric vaccinations tomorrow, we want to pause and thank you, Marin, for your commitment to each other.  Your desire for community health and wellness is a big part of our vaccination success.
