No More Residency restrictions for vaccination

 

  • Vaccine was limited in the first few months of vaccine rollout, so we could only make it available to people who lived or worked in Washington state. We are pleased to share that we are ending this requirement. Everyone who is eligible can get a vaccine regardless of where they live or work, as supply allows. We know that vaccinating everyone is important to help us all end this pandemic. We are removing the residency requirement for all vaccine sites, including the state-led mass vaccination sites. Please continue to promote vaccination to the communities you serve. Each vaccine given benefits us all. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at Covid.Vaccine@doh.wa.gov.
