Reflection and appreciation of Marin Public Health

As we prepare to celebrate and give thanks, Marin County Public Health would like to express our sincere appreciation to all of you. We are honored to serve our community and are grateful to our many partners for their support, as well as all Marin County residents for adapting to the changing conditions of the pandemic to protect each other. Our pandemic response has been successful thanks to this concerted effort.

Last year around this time, we saw a surge in cases on the eve of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. In addition to sharing tips to celebrate safely in our Status update a year agoMarin’s public health officer, Dr. Matt Willis, shared an urgent message with Marin residents asking for their help in stopping the wave.

What a difference a year makes! A year later, the pandemic landscape in Marin has changed for the better. This year, 86.6% of the Marin population aged 5 years and older have completed their vaccine series. Our county’s high vaccination rate means we’re kicking off the Thanksgiving holiday with about half the number of active cases we saw last year.

We are grateful to all our partners and our community for the contributions they have made to Marin’s pandemic response. It is thanks to all of you that we have reached this point.

**UPDATE, Nov. 22: To better align with California state record keeping, Marin Public Health moved from American Community Survey (ACS) population estimates to Department of Finance (DOF) population estimates. Because the total population estimate of DOF is slightly larger than the estimate of ACS, our total vaccination coverage has decreased slightly.
