COVID-19 Vaccine Doses Headed to Marin County

Late last week, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, and California’s COVID-19 Scientific Safety Review Workgroup confirmed the vaccine to be safe and efficacious. Clinical trials show the vaccine is 90% effective at preventing the SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes COVID-19.

This is an exciting moment and a new chapter in Marin County’s COVID-19 response. Later this week, the initial doses of this new vaccine will arrive in Marin County and we’ll begin the process of vaccinating those at highest risk of contracting COVID-19, including our frontline health care workers at hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. Vaccine production is in its infant stages and supplies are currently limited. While the vaccine is scarce, Marin Public Health will prioritize distribution based on the likelihood of exposure to the virus at work, or to vulnerability to serious illness if infected. It may be a few months before the vaccine is available to the general population.

Vaccine is essential to bring COVID-19 under control, but the virus is raging now. We must focus on what we can do today to save lives. It is critical for people to protect themselves and their families by wearing face coverings in public, not mixing with other households, washing hands regularly and maintaining physical distancing. Even after we have safe, effective vaccine to offer the public, all these measures will be important for ending the pandemic.

 

 

New Webpage for COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Marin Public Health has launched a new COVID-19 Vaccine webpage at Coronavirus.MarinHHS.org/vaccine. There you can find ongoing updates about the COVID-19 vaccination effort in Marin, answers to frequently asked questions, and a library of resources for providers and the general public.
