Pediatric Vaccinations Ramping Up Across County 

Within the first week of authorization of the COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11, more than 3,000 Marin County children were vaccinated across the county. More appointments are opening for vaccine clinics as supplies increase. 

As case rates rise among unvaccinated children and as we approach the winter holidays, Marin County Public Health is working to ensure children are protected with the vaccine as soon as possible. 

“This is a critical step in putting this pandemic behind us,” said Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County Public Health Officer. “Until this week, all of our 5-11-year-olds have been unvaccinated and vulnerable. As winter comes, it’s important to close that gap in our protection as a community.” 

Additional pediatric appointments are available at our Kerner Clinic this weekend and next weekend. Visit our Vaccine Finder webpage to see what vaccine clinics area available and to schedule an appointment.

Reminder for COVID-19 Self-Test Reporting 

It's mid-November and popular festivities during this time of year tend to carry traditions where large groups gather to celebrate. It’s important to practice self-care before and after these events because the threat of COVID-19 still exists despite Marin’s high vaccination rate.  

A valuable COVID-19 preventative resource at our disposal is easy access to over-the-counter self-tests, which can be purchased at most local pharmacies. Marin County Public Health has created an online form so results from those tests can be recorded along with all other tests conducted at laboratories.  

Reporting home-based test results is important because: It connects people who test positive for COVID-19 to supportive resources, assists with contact tracing efforts to limit community spread, and also offers information on COVID-19 activity in Marin.  

Laboratories that process COVID-19 test results are required to report results to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Marin County Public Health (MCPH). Test results have been compiled ever since COVID-19 tests became available in March 2020 and have been critical to localized surveillance figures. However, since self-tests provide a result without the use of a laboratory, those results are not automatically reported to CDPH and MCPH, creating a void in critical community COVID-19 data.  

The brief online form collects information about the test result, reason for the test, the date, the brand, basic demographic factors, and contact information. Public Health has privacy and security measures in place to safeguard personally identifiable information.
