Dear Friends and Neighbors,

This afternoon a panel of experts recommended the FDA authorize the use of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.  The official authorization by the agency is expected to come quickly, allowing health care workers and nursing home residents to begin receiving the shots in the coming days.

This is very exciting news, although it is important to remember that it will still be months before the Pfizer vaccine – and possibly others – become available for widespread distribution. So we must all continue with our COVID-19 precautions, especially now, as colder weather drives us indoors where the virus apparently spreads more easily.

Additional information on the COVID-19 vaccines, distribution plans and more is included below.        

As always, I would like to hear from you. You can call me at 206-477-1004 or you can reach me by email at 

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
