Get vaccinated against COVID-19 

(ENGLISH) | (SPANISH)

 

 

The health and safety of Marin County residents is our top priority. A safe, effective, no-cost COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone.

COVID-19 vaccination is one of the most important tools to end the pandemic. Vaccines and boosters are highly effective at preventing people from getting very sick or dying from COVID-19 and lowers the risk of developing "long COVID." 

 

Benefits of Vaccination

People who have recovered from COVID-19 develop some immunity that weakens over time; the strongest immune response happens when a person has been vaccinated, boosted, and has recovered from infection. 

Common effects of the vaccine (which may include flu-like symptoms) are normal signs that the body is building protection and typically go away within a day. In contrast, COVID-19 infection commonly causes 1 – 2 weeks of symptoms and can lead to severe illness.  


Cost

Vaccines and boosters are free to everyone.  You do not need medical insurance to get the vaccine.

 


Immigration status

Everyone can be vaccinated and boosted when eligible, regardless of their immigration status. Immigration or residential status will not be asked about when receiving the vaccine. 

 


Eligibility

  • Vaccines: anyone age 6 months & older
  • 1st booster: anyone age 5 and older
  • 2nd booster: anyone 50 and older as well as people with certain risk factors.

Children age 6 months to 17 years must have permission from their parent or guardian to get vaccinated.

⚠️ VACCINES FOR CHILDREN AGE 6 MONTHS THROUGH 4 YEARS:  A Pfizer and Moderna vaccine was recently approved for children age 6 months to 4 years of age. Local vaccine providers started vaccinations for this age group on Thursday, June 23, 2022.  NOTE: Vaccine supply will determine available clinics and appointments: the vaccine for young children is a different formulation than the 12 & older vaccine, and vaccine manufacturers are working as quickly as possible to ship the new formulation to providers across the United States.
