The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) is preparing for a future COVID-19 vaccine. Currently, all potential vaccines are still in clinical trials. We do not know when a vaccine will be approved, released, and which communities the vaccine will be approved for.

We are monitoring vaccine development efforts closely. We will make sure that any vaccine approved for use in Washington State is safe and effective. Once a safe and effective vaccine is available, DOH will need to prioritize what communities will receive the vaccine.

DOH is creating a plan for how to prioritize a COVID-19 vaccine and we want your feedback. Specifically, we are looking for:

  • Recommendations on how COVID-19 vaccine should be prioritized across Washington state.
  • Insight into how people are currently feeling about the vaccine in general.

Please take this survey to provide feedback by 11:59 p.m., Monday, October 26. We are especially interested in hearing from communities, partners, workers, businesses, and sectors who are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
