The State of California did not provide an update on the County’s tier status in the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy on Tuesday, so the County remains in Tier 3, Orange Status, for the time being. Despite a lack of change in reopening, we took a step closer to immunizing more of our community with the announcement from the FDA earlier this week that adolescents age 12 – 15 years old are eligible for vaccination.
The County of Marin is preparing for vaccine outreach to Marin families and teens on the heels of the FDA announcement. Vaccine distribution in Marin hinges on approval from the Center for Disease Control‘s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Western States Scientific Advisory Group to make independent recommendations to authorize use in California. Approval from the CDC and Western States Scientific Advisory Group is expected to happen by the end of this week.
