Enjoy spring break here in Kitsap County

Relaxing close to home during spring break is one of the best ways you can fight the spread of COVID-19. The bottom line is travel increases your chance of getting and spreading the virus. The CDC recommends that you do not travel at this time, even if you are vaccinated. Delaying travel and staying home to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 is the safest option.

The good news is that we have great attractions for you and your family to see and explore right here in Kitsap County.  These local destinations promise to give you that needed break this spring. Additionally, visiting local shops and supporting our Kitsap Peninsula businesses helps not only the economy, but your neighbors and friends.

Here are just a few ideas to try in Kitsap this spring:

Kitsap Public Health: Here's what to expect on April 15

Gov. Jay Inslee announced this week that beginning April 15, all Washington residents 16 or older will be eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine. 

This is good news. It means that more than 200,000 people in our community will have the opportunity to get vaccinated against COVID-19, preventing countless hospitalizations, saving lives, and bringing us closer to ending this devastating pandemic. 

However, while vaccine allocations have gradually increased, there will not be enough vaccine available on April 15 for everyone to get a shot immediately. People will need to be patient and persistent as they look for vaccination appointments. Vaccine supplies will continue to grow this spring and everyone who wants a vaccine will be able to get one.

Learn more about what to expect as vaccine eligibility opens up in this news release from Kitsap Public Health.

Washington entered Phase 1B tiers 3 and 4 of the state’s COVID-19 vaccine timeline on March 31. For a detailed list of who is eligible please refer to DOH’s vaccine allocation and prioritization guidance document.

Everyone 16 and older who wants a COVID-19 vaccine will be eligible to receive one in Washington state starting April 15. Currently Pfizer-BioNTech is the only COVID-19 vaccine authorized for people 16 years of age and older. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson are authorized for people 18 and older. Those age 16 or 17 may need consent from a parent or guardian to get the vaccine, unless they are legally emancipated.
