Marin County Vaccinated 1,200+ School Teachers & Staff on Sunday
Marin County is rocking and rolling with their COVID-19 vaccinations.
Thanks to ABC7 for letting us know that on Sunday, January 17, Marin County began vaccinating teachers and school staff members. 1,248 school staff received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
Marin County prioritized their teaching staff and support staff because about 82% of schools in Marin County are back open for in person classes; thankfully, thus far without an outbreak, according to Dr. Matt Willis, Marin County’s Pubic Health Officer and the county’s superintendent.
Marin County’s Health Department receives between 2,000 to 7,000 doses from the state a week. In the past 15 days, they’ve given out close to 10,000 doses as their vaccination site.
Next up for the vaccine in Marin County will be low income seniors.
On Sunday, 1,248 school staff members were vaccinated. Marin County’s Public Health Officer Dr. Matt Willis was at the forefront of this effort. https://t.co/RphHYVd1KY pic.twitter.com/hDjqzYTs19
