Case updates December 15, 2020; more doses of vaccine on the way

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

The Washington State Department of Health anticipates receiving tens of thousands more doses of COVID-19 vaccine later this week, as vaccinations continue for frontline health workers and long-term care residents and staff across the state.

These groups are the first and only people eligible to receive the vaccine at this time.

31,200 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine have already arrived in Washington, and we’ll be getting 29,250 additional doses later this week.

As of midday Wednesday, December 16, 2020, at least 410 doses of vaccine have been administered to these groups in Washington.

The department estimates it will take until around mid- to late January to finish vaccinating these groups and begin offering the vaccine to the next eligible groups.
