Kitsap Public Health supports expanded vaccine eligibility

The Kitsap Public Health District supports the state’s decision to add educators and staff in schools and childcare settings to the current phase of COVID-19 vaccination (Phase 1b, Tier 1). Kitsap Public Health looks forward to receiving additional guidance from the state for this new vaccine priority group.

Kitsap Public Health will remain focused on getting as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible, and to identify and address gaps in vaccination efforts for communities most affected by COVID-19. It is important to remember that vaccine supplies are still limited and not everyone who is eligible will be able to get vaccinated immediately. Vaccine supplies and vaccination opportunities change weekly.

Eligible persons are advised to check around often to find available shot appointments, and take any opportunity found to get vaccinated. Kitsap Public Health recommends school employees who want to get vaccinated start by checking with their district administration and their regular healthcare provider regarding vaccination opportunities before reaching out to other providers. Use the Phase Finder tool to check when you will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Inslee announces authorization of J & J vaccine by Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup

Gov. Jay Inslee today announced the authorization of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine by the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup. The announcement comes after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention granted their initial authorization for the vaccine.

The Western States Workgroup, comprised of vaccine experts from Washington, California, Oregon and Nevada, has met to review the data and analysis to ensure the safety and efficacy of all FDA-authorized vaccines. See the governor's news release for more details.


COVID-19 travel restriction update

Gov. Jay Inslee yesterday updated Proclamation 20-83 regarding quarantine requirements for air travel. This proclamation required air passengers to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival from countries in which COVID-19 variants were detected.

The amended order requires all air passengers to comply with the requirements ordered by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) when traveling from outside the U.S. to Washington. The CDC currently requires all such air passengers to obtain a negative viral COVID-19 test within three days of travel or to present proof of recovery from COVID-19.

For other types of travel, the Governor’s travel advisory remains in place. This proclamation will remain in effect through the state of emergency established in Proclamation 20-05.
