COVID-19 Vaccinations

Proclamation 21-14.1, issued by Governor Inslee on August 20, 2021, made numerous changes to Proclamation 21-14, issued by Governor Inslee on August 9, 2021, but left the same core requirements in place. The proclamation requires health care providers, defined broadly to include not only licensed health care providers but also all employees, contractors, and volunteers who work in a health care setting, to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by October 18, 2021. This includes Direct Support Professionals (DSPs). (link to proclamation)

“Fully vaccinated” means two weeks after your last vaccination.  A person must have had their last vaccination by October 4, 2021 to be considered fully vaccinated by October 18, 2021. There are some exemptions to this proclamation based on religious or medical accommodations. Practices must be in place to protect clients and staff with all accommodations.
