Make a plan to get the flu shot

This year it is especially important to get a flu vaccine and take steps to protect yourself from respiratory infections. Health experts warn the presence of both influenza and COVID-19 this fall and winter could increase people’s risk for severe illness and put a strain health care services.

Ways to get a vaccine:

  • Call your doctor’s office and schedule an appointment.
  • Check to find a pharmacy or clinic near you.

Kitsap Public Health is hosting free flu clinics at several locations in Kitsap County through the month of November. Information is available English and Spanish (en Español).

Clinics are open to adults 19 and older who are uninsured or underinsured (when insurance does not cover flu vaccine). Flu vaccination is free for those 18 years and younger in Washington state. Learn more about protecting yourself from seasonal flu from the Kitsap Public Health District.

Inslee announces technology investment for Washington students and staff

Gov. Jay Inslee announced the allocation of $24 million in Coronavirus Relief Funds to purchase approximately 64,000 computing devices for students across the state. These devices will enable students to receive their education in the new COVID-19 remote learning environment. The first shipment of 20,000 devices is expected in the coming weeks.

At the beginning of the 2020–2021 school year, more than 95% of students in Washington began the year in remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, according to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and the nine regional educational service districts, approximately 64,000 students and school staff statewide do not currently have their own computing device or tablet.
