Department of Health launches paper Phase Finder tool and increases language access

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) recently expanded access to its Phase Finder tool that helps people find out when they will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

The online Phase Finder tool is now available in 10 languages, and an additional 20 languages will be available this week. The full list of tools can be found here.

DOH also created a PDF version of the Phase Finder that can be printed and shared with those who don't have internet access. This helps navigate eligibility questions and identify if they can get the vaccine now. As future phases open up, the tool will be updated.

Individuals, organizations and vaccine clinics are encouraged to print copies of the tool and make them available to those who need a paper version. It will also be translated into multiple languages and should be available soon.

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

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) continues to make progress with COVID-19 vaccine distribution and administration efforts.

Washington is currently averaging 25,346 vaccine doses given each day. A new record was set on Feb. 11, with 44,872 doses administered, which is extremely close to the state goal of vaccinating 45,000 people per day. This information can be found on the DOH data dashboard under the vaccines tab, which is updated three times per week.

Although allocations are trending in the right direction, there is still not enough vaccine to meet demand. This week Washington state providers requested 436,720 doses and received 263,570 doses from the federal government.

Several factors determine allocation, including available vaccine from the federal government, county level pro-rata data, equity, site-specific information, distribution channels, compliance with 95% requirement, and partner input. Due to second dose reallocations, some counties experienced a gap in recent weeks that DOH is working to resolve. See the full news release for more details.
