COVID-19 daily cases


You’re fully vaccinated. Now what?

Now that you’re fully vaccinated, you might be wondering how your day-to-day life will change. You may also be wondering about what precautions you should continue to take.

The short of it, is that you can resume some of the activities you had stopped because of the pandemic. However, we all need to keep in mind that others are still at risk. Think of it this way: the vaccine protects you. To protect others, you still need to take precautions. That’s because we don’t know how well the vaccine prevents the spread of COVID-19 from one person to another. It’s also important to remember that while the chances are very low, it is still possible to get COVID-19 after being vaccinated.

You’re considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your final shot. That’s two weeks after your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or two weeks after the single-dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Read more in this blog post from the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) about resuming activities and gathering safely post-vaccine.

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

More than 5 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have now been administered in Washington. As of April 26, more than 5,248,061 doses of vaccine have been given across the state, which is more than 81% of the 6,429,730 doses that have been delivered to providers and long-term care programs. See the vaccine distribution update from the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) for more details.

Washington is currently averaging more than 61,000 vaccine doses given each day and nearly 29% of people in Washington are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This information can be found on the DOH data dashboard under the vaccines tab, which is updated three times per week.

DOH today announced the COVID-19 vaccine allocation strategy is moving to a provider need-based approach. Moving forward, DOH will make allocation decisions based on individual provider requests for vaccine, in addition to population size. Using this method, DOH will be able to distribute vaccine to the communities that need it most, while also providing extra doses to providers who continue to see higher need for vaccine.
