"We expect to move into phase 1B in a matter of days. You’ll hear more of this accelerated pace very soon." - Assistant Secretary Michelle Roberts from our Division of Prevention & Community Health #COVID19

"Vaccination is a tool that will ultimately bring this pandemic era to an end…. We need to make sure people at highest risk of getting sick or dying get the #COVID19 vaccine first." - Roberts
“We are not flattening out. We are continuing to rise.” - Dr. Scott Lindquist, State Epidemiologist for Communicable Diseases

We all must continue practicing the 3-Ws to flatten the #COVID19 curve:

🧼 Wash your hands
😷 Wear a mask
🙂⬅️➡️🙂 Watch your distance

Lacy Fehrenbach, the state’s deputy secretary: “This week we began texting every person in Washington who received a positive COVID-19 test result. … We’re getting more people the information they need to act more quickly and that’s key to slowing the spread of the disease.”
“This week we began texting every person in WA state who received a positive #COVID19 test result… We’re getting more people the information they need to act more quickly and that’s key to slowing the spread of the disease.” - Lacy Fehrenbach, DOH Deputy Secretary
If you work in #healthcare, schedule your #COVID19 vaccine now to avoid longer lines & higher demand for appointments. Home care aides, health care interpreters, community health workers & doulas/birth center workers are all eligible for the vaccine now.

We haven’t gotten any official notice about this yet, but we’ll let you know when we do. #CovidVaccine #COVID19
We are working quickly to analyze this new information from the federal government and the changes to their #CovidVaccine allocation methods. We will let you know about changes to our approach and plans for vaccination as soon as we understand how this impacts WA state. #COVID19
There are many essential workers and people at high risk for #COVID19 in our state. Bottom line: we still don’t have enough #CovidVaccine for everyone who needs it. We are working to balance the available supply and distribute this vaccine in an equitable way.
