COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Planning
The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) continues to make progress with our COVID-19 vaccine distribution planning. We are working with the federal government and local partners within Washington to plan for the distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine when one becomes available.
Status: Several vaccine candidates are in clinical trials. Two vaccine manufacturers have applied for emergency use authorization, however the FDA has not yet approved a COVID-19 vaccine. See our FAQs for more information.
Washington State COVID-19 Vaccination Plan
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) required all states and territories to turn in an interim plan for COVID-19 vaccine distribution on Oct. 16, 2020. These plans are living documents and will change over time as we learn more about the vaccines and figure out the most equitable way to protect people.
