California began distributing COVID-19 vaccines in December 2020 to local health departments and health care systems. Here is information to keep you informed and to maintain transparency about COVID-19 vaccines for our community.
Sonoma and Marin counties continue to follow vaccine prioritization guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
More information about COVID-19 and state and local response can be found on the CDPH, Sonoma County and Marin County websites. Visit the California COVID-19 website for the most up-to-date information on the state's COVID-19 vaccine distribution phases.
The Community Vaccine Advisory Committee continues to provide input and feedback to CDPH for the ongoing planning and engagement efforts to ensure equitable vaccine distribution and allocation. The Committee meetings are conducted virtually and open to the public. For more information about the committee and future meetings, please visit the Community Vaccine Advisory Committee website.
Your Actions Save Lives
We each need to do our part to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Prevention continues to be the best way to protect yourself, your family, your friends, and our community. Continue to follow these preventive measures:
- If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle, or body aches), call your healthcare provider.
- If you believe you have been exposed, get tested. Free, confidential testing is available statewide.
- Stay home except for essential activities and follow local public health guidance.
- Keep interactions limited to people who live in your household.
- Wear a cloth face mask when out in public.
- Avoid non-essential travel and stay close to home; self-quarantine for 10 days after arrival if you leave the state.
- Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick and stay home from work, school, or other people if you feel ill.
- Add your phone to the fight by signing up for COVID-19 exposure notifications from CA Notify.
- Answer the call if a contact tracer from the CA COVID Team or local health department tries to connect.
