if you are a Community Health Worker, this message is for you about the COVID-19 Vaccine from WA DOH

Community health workers, home care aides, doulas, midwives, health care interpreters, and other health care workers are currently eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Almost 200,000 health care providers in Washington have received the COVID-19 vaccine in less than a month. That’s amazing! However, that’s not enough to protect us all and to protect our patients. At least 150,000 still have yet to receive this life-saving protection. Your priority status for getting the COVID-19 vaccine ends soon. There are only days left until we move into the next phase of distribution.

If you haven’t yet gotten your COVID-19 vaccine, please sign up for an appointment and get vaccinated right away. Millions of people in Washington are anxiously awaiting their turn in line for the vaccine, and that means we need to step up. The state prioritized us to receive the vaccine first because of the risk we endure every day and the critical role we play in keeping this state healthy. Let’s honor that and fill out phase 1a as soon as we can.

Go to www.findyourphaseWA.org to find out the closest place to get vaccinated.

If you have any questions about the vaccine, please check out www.CovidVaccineWA.org.

Thank you for all you’ve done fighting this pandemic with us every day, and thank you in advance for taking this important action as well!
