Kittitas County, WA -
The Kittitas County Incident Management Team (IMT) is responding to the federal directive on the school and childcare vaccination plan. On March 2nd, a new directive was provided to all states to get every pre-k educator, k-12 teacher, and childcare worker at least one shot of COVID-19 vaccine in the month of March.
Washington State added educators and childcare workers to Phase 1B, Tier 1 effective immediately. These workers join anyone 65 and older or 50 and older in multigenerational households in Phase 1B, Tier 1. “The State Department of Health will provide more information and update Phase Finder in the next few days,” states Kittitas County Public Health Director Tristen Lamb. “This week’s appointments are now full, so individuals in the new directive are encouraged to get on the waiting list as soon as possible.”
Below is a recap of who should be accessing appointments or the waitlist at this time:
