Distribution and Prioritization

The Department of State Health Services’ (DSHS) hosts weekly meetings of the Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel (EVAP). Find details below, and check this DSHS webpage for updates.  

  • Physicians Remain Priority, Officials Say: Physicians and health care professionals are first priority for COVID-19 vaccines and should be vaccinated before the second priority group, EVAP members reiterated this week. The recent flexibilities for the second group were published to accommodate vaccinating others if a facility has run out of health care workers to vaccinate. This is to prevent vaccine waste.
  • Need a Vaccine? Your County Medical Society Might Help: Several county medical societies have partnered with chain pharmacies in their areas to provide COVID-19 vaccines to physicians and other health care workers.
  • Clinical Guidance on Allergic Reactions: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its clinical guidance on allergic reactions associated with COVID-19 vaccines.
