Weather delaying vaccine shipments; Kitsap Public Health moving second dose appointments to next week

Severe winter weather across the United States has affected shipments of COVID-19 vaccine this week. The Washington State Department of Health reported today that about 90% of shipments coming to our state this week were behind schedule. 

Kitsap Public Health was allocated about 400 second doses of Moderna vaccine for this week. That vaccine shipment has been delayed and not yet arrived. Other vaccine providers in our community may be experiencing similar shipping delays. 

Because vaccine did not arrive on time, Kitsap Public Health moved second dose appointments scheduled this Thursday and Friday (Feb. 18-19) to next week. Affected patients were notified and provided instructions for scheduling second-dose appointments for next week. See the news release for more details.


Updated guidance for food establishments and transient accommodations

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) guidance for farmers markets, food pantries, grocery stores, restaurants, and other food establishments has been updated and combined into one document for all Food Workers and Establishments

For additional requirements in this sector, please also see the governor’s COVID-19 reopening guidance for businesses and workers site for Restaurants, Taverns, Wineries, Breweries and Distilleries; and a new FAQ on Outdoor and Open-Air Structures.

Updated guidance has also been posted by DOH for Transient Accommodations (Hotels, Motels, B&Bs, etc.) to include information outlined in the Healthy Washington – Roadmap to Recovery plan.


COVID-19 vaccine distribution update from the Washington State Department of Health
