The health and safety of Marin County residents is our top priority. A safe, effective COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone.
Getting the Vaccine
The best protection from COVID-19 is staying up to date with the recommended vaccinations and boosters.
Everyone 6 months and older should get a COVID-19 vaccine. COVID-19 vaccination has many benefits and is one of the best ways to prevent getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and dying.

Who Can Get Vaccinated
The CDC recommends that everyone ages 6 years and older, whether they’ve received any original COVID-19 vaccines or not, get one updated bivalent vaccine, which protects against Omicron variants.
You can get a free COVID-19 vaccine from your healthcare provider, local pharmacies, or Marin County vaccination sites.
Stay Up to Date on COVID Vaccinations
A person is up to date with their vaccination if they have received all recommended vaccine doses and boosters for their age group.
Everyone aged 6 years and older must get a single dose of the updated bivalent COVID-19 vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) to be considered up to date.
Children aged 6 months through 5 years must complete the initial COVID-19 vaccination primary series and get the bivalent booster, if eligible, to be considered up to date. Talk to your child’s healthcare provider if you have questions about what vaccines they are eligible for and if it’s time for a booster.
Recommendations for People Who May Get Additional Updated COVID-19 Vaccines
Some people may get additional doses of COVID-19 vaccines:
- People aged 65 years and older may get one additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine four or more months after the 1st updated COVID-19 vaccine.
- People with weakened immune systems may get one additional dose of updated COVID-19 vaccine two or more months after the first updated COVID-19 vaccine. Talk to your healthcare provider about additional updated doses.
