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. Learn about vaccine dose timing by age.

If you are eligible, sign up for an appointment to get a COVID-19 vaccine.  

 

Get help

If you have questions about the vaccine, talk to your healthcare provider. Or, contact the California COVID-19 Hotline at 1-833-422-4255. The hotline is available Mon-Fri 8am-8pm, Sat-Sun 8am-5pm and can answer general COVID-19 questions or schedule a vaccination appointment.

Lost vaccination cards

Did you receive your primary vaccinations from Marin County Public Health (MCPH)? If yes, MCPH can replace lost COVID-19 vaccination cards or make corrections to the COVID-19 immunization record. Request a replacement card or vaccination correction with the Vaccine Card Request Form.

If you did not receive your primary vaccinations from MCPH, visit the provider of your primary COVID-19 vaccination series and to get a replacement vaccine card or have your immunization record corrected.

You can also replace your card using the Digital Vaccine Record available from the State of California.
