Marin County Public Health Status Update for February 02, 2024, includes Video: New Study Defines Vaccine Effectiveness; Navigating Lyme Disease Risks; Social Media and Teen Mental Health; and COVID-19 Data Update.  

The Marin County Public Health Status Update is published weekly to share news and resources related to pandemic response and recovery, emergency preparedness, and other public health priorities.

Video: New Study Defines Vaccine Effectiveness 

Yesterday, the CDC published findings showing adults who received the updated 2023-24 COVID-19 vaccine were 54% less likely to have symptomatic infection than those who didn't. Dr Willis explains why this is important for Marin County as transmission rates increase fueled by the JN.1 variant. To stay up to date with vaccines, visit GetVaccinatedMarin.org.  

Navigating Lyme Disease Risks 

Lyme disease is present at low levels in Marin County. Lyme disease can be contracted from the bite of Western Black Legged ticks infected with the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi. The Marin/Sonoma Vector Control District collects ticks at parks and other publicly owned lands in Marin to monitor risk of infection and manages an interactive surveillance dashboard for public use. Among nearly 10,000 ticks tested in the past decade, about 3% can transmit Lyme Disease. Avoiding tick bites is the best prevention. Enhance your knowledge of tick-bite prevention before, during, and after entering tick habitats.  

Social Media and Teen Mental Health 

An increasing body of evidence shows social media can harm the mental and social wellbeing of young people. According to a U.S. Surgeon General’s Advisory, Marin County Office of Education is leading efforts to address this issue and has developed a resource guide for parents. MCOE has also joined a lawsuit against social media companies to accelerate change and offset costs associated with supporting youth who have been negatively impacted.
