Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Expanded vaccination for older adults
Updated January 18, 2021
As of January 18, 2020, all older adults in Washington state over the age of 65 are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. People 50 and older who live in multigenerational households are also eligible if they meet certain conditions. Due to limited supply of vaccine, not everyone will be able to access a vaccine right away. Access will improve as the supply chain widens and providers in King County receive more doses.
With cases skyrocketing in King County, it's more important than ever to stop the spread:
- Wear a mask around people you don't live with (even close friends and family).
- Stay home as much as possible.
- Follow the Governor's limitations on indoor gatherings.
- Quarantine and get tested at the first sign of illness or if you've been around someone with COVID-19.
- The safest option is to avoid gathering with people you don't live with this holiday season.
