DSHS has submitted the first week’s allocation of COVID-19 vaccines to the CDC. This allocation is 224,250 doses of the Pfizer vaccine to be shipped to 109 hospitals in 34 counties as early as the week of Dec. 14, depending on when the vaccine is authorized for use by the FDA.

As anticipated, the initial vaccine supply is limited. The first week’s allocation is based on information submitted by vaccine providers when they enrolled, including the number of health care workers who can be quickly vaccinated and vaccine storage capacity at each site. The minimum order for the Pfizer vaccine is 975 doses. More vaccine will be available for more providers in the following weeks, including a vaccine from Moderna once it is authorized.

Nine hospitals received the largest vaccine allocation of 5,850 doses each, with the remaining hospitals receiving amounts based upon allocation guidelines.
