In the coming months, Washington State will attempt to vaccinate millions of state residents. How is our state performing during the largest vaccination drive in American history? How is the new federal administration boosting state efforts to get vaccine into arms faster and more efficiently? What protections are in place to ensure equitable access to the vaccine? How safe are the vaccines? Our expert panelists SheAnne Allen and Mary Huynh will answer many of our COVID-19 vaccine-related questions and provide important updates regarding Washington’s vaccine roll out.
SheAnne Allen is the Covid-19 Vaccine Director & Deputy PCH Response Director at the Washington State Department of Health.
