With one week to go until the State’s June 15th reopening, countywide COVID-related statistics continue to trend towards the manageable containment of cases and the success of our vaccination efforts. As of today, 78.7 percent of eligible Marin residents have received two doses (or one shot of Johnson & Johnson), and 65 percent of the total population have been fully immunized (two weeks after second dose). Check out more COVID-19 data for Marin on the Data & Surveillance webpage.
Please keep in mind that taking precautions will continue to help contain the virus. Masks are still required in most situations when around others and indoors for unvaccinated individuals and in crowded outdoor and indoor spaces for those who have been vaccinated. The best way to keep the trend going and to reopen our economy by the governor’s target date of June 15th is for everyone to get vaccinated.

No one intends to lose important personal documents, but it happens! If you do lose your vaccine card, check back with the clinic, pharmacy, or hospital where you received the immunization, as they may have some form of record.
