A sad milestone: Over 100 lives lost in Kitsap County

More than 100 COVID-19-associated deaths have been reported in Kitsap County since the start of the pandemic. This sad milestone is a reminder of why we are working so hard as a community to curb the spread of the virus and make vaccinations available to all. Over half of these deaths, 56 total, have occurred since the start of 2021.

“Each COVID-19 death reported is tragic and preventable," Kitsap Public Health District Health Officer Dr. Gib Morrow said. "We have all the tools we need to slow the spread of this virus and spare more Kitsap families from enduring the grief of losing a loved one.”


Washingtonians ages 16+ eligible for vaccine April 15

Thursday everyone 16 and older will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Washington. Expanding eligibility will help protect our communities and slow the spread of the disease. Currently about four to five million people are eligible for vaccine. Beginning April 15, about 1.5 million more Washington residents will be eligible.

Currently Pfizer-BioNTech is the only COVID-19 vaccine authorized for people 16 to 17 years of age. The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) is working to add vaccine type to its Vaccine Locator webpage and mobile app to help simplify the process. In the meantime, providers are encouraged to clearly identify the type of vaccine they are offering for available appointments. If the vaccine type is not listed, people may need to contact the provider.

There are many vaccination appointments available in our county this week, including special clinics scheduled in Port Orchard, Silverdale, and Poulsbo. Visit the DOH Vaccine Locator for registration information. For more local updates, visit
