Department of Health releases COVID-19 vaccine allocation guidance for Phase 1a

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) has developed the first phase of guidance for COVID-19 vaccine allocation across Washington State. This guidance is the result of several months of engagement with expert groups and community partners to gather input and ideas (more details coming in full guidance).

Currently, DOH is limiting Phase 1 of the allocation framework to Phase 1a including the following populations:

  • High-risk workers in health care settings (clinical judgment should be applied to identify who is at greatest risk using the guidance below)
  • High-risk first responders (clinical judgment should be applied to identify who is at greatest risk using the guidance below)
  • Residents and staff of nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other community-based, congregate living settings where most individuals
    over 65 years of age are receiving care, supervision, or assistance

WA Notify: How will it help?

Washington Exposure Notifications (also known as WA Notify) is a new tool that works through smartphones, without sharing any personal information, to alert users if they may have been exposed to COVID-19.  It is completely private, and doesn’t know or track who you are or where you go.

Studies have found that the more people who use exposure notification, the greater the benefit. Models based on three counties in Washington state show that even a small number of people there using WA Notify would reduce infections and deaths. Just like wearing masks, physical distancing and keeping gatherings small, WA Notify is another tool to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

To use WA Notify on an iPhone, enable Exposure Notifications in Settings. Select United States, then select Washington. On an Android phone, go to the Google Play Store and download the WA Notify app.
