Washington Launches Vaccine Partnership, Online Phase Finder

Washington Governor Jay Inslee on Monday announced a public-private partnership with the goal of creating new vaccination sites and making state residents age 65 and over immediately eligible. As the vaccination effort widens the state has launched an online tool named Phase Finder for citizens to check eligibility and sign up to be notified when it’s their turn to get vaccinated. The phase finder asks questions about work, age and health status. 

Getting the vaccine once you’re eligible will still be more complicated than getting a typical flu vaccine. But in addition to notifying you by email or text message that your phase is open, the phase finder will also tell you where to sign up to get a coronavirus vaccine.
