COVID-19 vaccine

COVID-19 vaccines are now available in Clark County. Initially, there will not be enough vaccine for everybody, due to limited supplies. 

The vaccine will be administered in phases, with those at highest risk getting immunized first and immunization continuing until everyone who wants to be immunized can be immunized. State officials are hopeful that most people in Washington will be immunized by mid-summer 2021.
