COVID Vaccine Info
Vaccination is an important step on the path out of the COVID-19 pandemic. There is a phased plan for administering the vaccine and it will take time before most of the public is vaccinated against COVID. In the meantime, people should maintain other preventive measures.
This page will be updated as new information is available.
Who is currently being vaccinated
At this time, Phases 1a and 1b1 are being vaccinated, which includes:
- Workers in health care settings
- High-risk first responders
- Residents and staff of nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other community-based, congregate living settings where most individuals over 65 years of age are receiving care, supervision, or assistance
- All people 65 years or older
- People 50 years or older who live in multigenerational households (2 or more generations)
- Example: An older adult who cannot live alone and is being cared for by a relative or in-home caregiver, or an older adult who shares the home with a grandchild.
If you do fall within the current phases, you can learn more and register for a vaccination appointment here.

COVID VACCINATION PLAN
Tools for Patients
According to CDC guidelines, individuals 18 years and older should receive two doses of the Moderna vaccine at least 28 days apart. This is considered the minimum interval or minimum amount of time that is needed to separate dose 1 and dose 2. It is recommended that doses be given as close to 28 days as possible, but there is no maximum interval between the first and second dose.
People interested in volunteering to help with the COVID-19 response can sign up through the Snohomish County Medical Reserve Corps at www.snohd.org/mrc.
