SEATTLE (AP) – Everyone over 70 years old and anyone over 50 who lives in a multigenerational household will be the next priorities for COVID-19 vaccines in Washington state.
Phase 1B is a 4 tiered plan:
Phase 1B1 – (Tier 1)
Phase 1B2 – (Tier 2)
Phase 1B3 – (Tier 3)
Phase 1B4 – (Tier 4)
Newly installed Secretary Umair Shah reiterated Wednesday that the state remains in the first phase of vaccine distribution, with high-risk health-care workers, first responders and residents of long-term care facilities first in line.
But he said that within two or three weeks the state should be able to move to Phase 1B, which will focus on all residents over 70 and those over 50 who live in multigenerational households.
