Quarter Of County Has Received First COVID-19 Vaccine Shot
From San Juan County
As vaccine distribution efforts continue, it is worth looking at what vaccine has been received to date in San Juan County.
These numbers are just a snapshot. Please recognize that this is a constantly evolving situation.
To date, seven vaccine providers in San Juan County have been approved to distribute vaccine and have received doses to administer. These numbers are as of Feb. 23 and may or may not reflect doses that have arrived or are being administered this week.
Based on these numbers, just shy of 25% of San Juan County residents have received at least their first dose of vaccine.
All providers would eagerly welcome more vaccine. The limitation to providers receiving and delivering more vaccinations is almost always lack of supply.
All providers play a critical role, regardless of volume. Medical providers and pharmacies offer a vital service in that they can reach out directly to client and patients of theirs that they know are most at risk.
Over time, first dose and second dose numbers will be equal. A second dose will be delivered and administered for all first doses.
These numbers are constantly in flux. Use them for general trends, but not for pinpoint comparisons.

While the number of doses administered by each provider are not included in WA DOH reporting, in general providers should be administering doses within a week of receipt.
