Use the V-safe tool to tell the CDC about side effects

Use your smartphone to tell the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine with the V-safe after-vaccine health checker. You’ll also get reminders if you need a second vaccine dose.

V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Through V-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Depending on your answers, someone from CDC may call to check on you and get more information. V-safe will also remind you to get your second COVID-19 vaccine dose if you need one.

Vaccination demographics data added to Department of Health's COVID-19 dashboard

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) added data on vaccination by race, ethnicity and age to the COVID-19 dashboard. To see the data, click on the Vaccinations tab at the top of the dashboard, then select “Who is getting vaccinated?” directly below.

These data were initially released in a report on Feb. 11 and include:

  • Percentage of people in each age group who have been vaccinated
  • Race/ethnicity of people 65 and older who have had at least one dose of vaccine and who are fully vaccinated, with a comparison to the Washington population 65 and older
  • Race/ethnicity of people of all ages who have had at least one dose of vaccine and who are fully vaccinated, with a comparison to the total Washington population

DOH leaders explained the data and what the state is doing to address inequities at a recent media briefing. The department is committed to ensuring equitable vaccine distribution, and continues to gather and implement feedback from the communities, partners and sectors most impacted by COVID-19 on an ongoing basis.
