Your Update on What's Happening at the King County Council  

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As vaccine rollout continues across King County, I want to share the good progress being made in vaccinating those who are at the highest risk.

Our Public Health workers, local firefighters, Medic One paramedics, and city and county leaders are working in partnership to first vaccinate older adults, who are the most vulnerable to complications and death from COVID-19. As of yesterday, King County has administered at least one dose of the vaccine to 41.2% of adults age 65-74 and almost 46% of adults age 75+. Seventeen mobile vaccine teams are reaching those at highest risk in their own homes, and vaccine sites in Auburn and Kent have vaccinated almost 6,000 South King County residents as of earlier this week.

As of yesterday, almost 342,000 doses of the vaccine have been administered to King County residents. 14.1% of King County’s total population has received one dose, and 4.4% has received both doses.

The lack of vaccine supply continues to be the key constraint on our efforts, but King County continues to push out the doses we have to those who need it the most. I remain extremely grateful to all of our first responders and Public Health workers who are working tirelessly to vaccinate folks as soon as possible. In these hard times, it’s heartening to see our community serving and helping one another.

Another point of encouragement is that COVID-19 cases are continuing to trend downward in King County, with 66 new cases and 0 new deaths as of yesterday.

All the best, and stay safe,

Reagan Dunn
