Individuals with disabilities at high risk are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. 

The Washington State Department of Health announced the expansion of vaccine eligibility to include people with disabilities. Last week, Governor Jay Inslee announced that Washington state will make an early move to Phase 1b-2, advancing on March 17 instead of March 22. Phase 1b-2 includes pregnant women and individuals with disabilities who are at high risk for severe COVID-19 illness. Phase 1b-2 also includes a number of high-risk worker groups. Learn more about who is eligible on DOH's website.
