We now know that Black, Latino, Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander populations have experienced higher rates of COVID-19 in the King County region.


While there are bigger reasons for this disparity, all of us can do something quick and easy to ensure that our communities are safer from COVID-19 infection. First, get vaccinated and boosted. Second, spread the word.


Go to a pharmacy or talk to your doctor about how to stay up-to-date on your vaccines. 

Why get vaccinated?

Ready for
the Bivalent Booster?

Bivalent booster vaccines are now available. The CDC recommends that everyone ages 6 years old and up receive an updated (bivalent) mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, even if they haven’t completed their primary series. 

 As of April 19, 2023: If you are 65 or older or have a weak immune system, you can now get an additional updated (bivalent) vaccine dose. (Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

A majority of people in the U.S. say that COVID infections have resulted in reduction of physical activity, increase of mental health problems, disruptions of work, school and childcare and strained social relationships. This stress is highest in lower income households. (Source: Journal of Child & Family Studies)
