New Features on Vaccine Finder Tool 

Our Vaccine Finder tool was recently refreshed to include more filters to help guide vaccine seekers to available appointments.  With vaccines in high demand, these filters can help you find a specific vaccine or available clinics more quickly. The filters include:   

  • Age: Filter to find clinics that serve young children versus adults.  
  • Vaccine type: Filter by vaccine brand 
  • Appointment availability: Filter to view only those clinics with available appointments.  

Additional Marin County Public Health vaccination clinics are added weekly to our Vaccine Finder tool. In addition, you can find vaccinations through your health care provider, medical clinic or local pharmacies, including  CVSWalgreensRiteAidCostcoLucky, and Safeway.  
 

First U.S. Omicron Case Confirmed in San Francisco 

Today, State of California and the San Francisco Department of Public Health announced the first case of the Omicron variant has been detected in California.  The case was detected through the state’s early detection systems and robust whole genomic sequencing surveillance.  For more information, read the statement from California Department of Public Health

Now that Omicron is here, it’s crucial we take steps to lower our risk.  

  • Get vaccinated: Vaccines not only protect us, but they will keep the people we love safe as well. All COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing serious illness from the virus. To get vaccinated or get a booster call (833) 422-4255 or visit GetVaccinatedMarin.org     

  • Wear a mask: Face coverings are strongly recommended for everyone indoor public spaces, and are required for those who are unvaccinated. Certain workplaces and indoor public spaces may require everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask.   

  • Getting tested: You should get tested if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, even if you are fully vaccinated. Symptoms can feel like a common cold, seasonal allergies, or flu. Book a free test appointment, find a walk-in test clinic, or buy a self-test kit at a drugstore. Find a testing site online or call (833) 422-4255. 

  • Stay home if sick: One of the best ways to prevent illness from spreading is to limit contact with others. Parents should assess a child’s health every morning before school. Those in the workforce who can conduct business remotely should do so when symptoms are prevalent.  

“While there are many factors of the Omicron variant that we don’t have control over, we have very direct control of our risk and it’s the same fundamentals we’ve been practicing over the past year,” said Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County Public Health Officer, in a video statement he shared on Monday, November 29.
