Looking Forward: Vaccines and the Light at the End of the Pandemic Tunnel

Now that everyone 16 and older in Washington state is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, a new goal has been set for administering 90,000 vaccines per day, doubling the original target. While distribution progress has happened faster than anticipated, there are still concerns.  Demand for the vaccine has softened in some areas of the state, struggles continue to ensure equitable vaccine administration in some groups, and worries of a fourth wave linger. Washington state’s health secretary, Dr. Umair Shah, will provide an update on gaining ground in the pandemic and what lies ahead at the end of this tunnel.
