The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekdays and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you.  

 

Vaccine Data Dashboard Refreshed to Track Boosters 

Today, our epidemiology team unveiled an updated Vaccination dashboard for Marin County’s vaccination data. This refreshed view combines the previous “Vaccinations Received by Marin Residents” and “Immunization Progress” dashboards for ease in comparing overall vaccination rates among eligible residents versus all residents.  

The dashboard shows the numbers of residents who have completed vaccination (two doses of Pfizer/Moderna or one dose of Johnson and Johnson), partially immunized (only received first does of the Pfizer/Moderna vaccine), and now includes those who received a booster or 3rd dose.  In addition, the dashboard now includes a 7-day average for daily doses administered, making it easier to track recent progress in vaccinations.  

View the updated dashboard on our vaccine data webpage.  

 

Upcoming Public Health Updates hosted by Marin County Office of Education 

Now that the school year is in full swing, Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) has organized a series of virtual informational events for our school community. Two of the three scheduled events are taking place this week. 

Tomorrow, October 12, MCOE will be hosting a Public Health Update to provide information about how schools have been doing in their effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 since in-person classes have returned.  

On Wednesday, October 13 and October 20, there will be virtual forums to discuss the topic of pediatric vaccinations. The first (Oct 13) will be presented in English and the second (Oct 20) will be in Spanish. With approval of COVID-19 vaccinations for children ages 5-11 pending in the United States, this has become a topic of wide discussion. Guest speakers in include:  

  • Dr. Matt Willis, Public Health Officer for Marin County  
  • Dr. Theodore Ruel, Chief of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at UCSF  
  • Dr. Tara Greenhow, Chief of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Kaiser  
  • Mary Jane Burke, Superintendent of Marin County Schools 

All three events are will be hosted on ZOOM, are FREE to join, and are available to anyone interested in participating.
