Eligible for a vaccine in Seattle but unable to get one? It might be your ZIP code

The city of Seattle has tried to make vaccine access more equitable by quietly enacting its own vaccine priority standards, within Washington state’s eligibility framework.

Instead of taking a first-come, first-served approach, the city says it is prioritizing Black, Indigenous, and people of color, older adults who haven’t been vaccinated yet, as well as people living within ZIP codes hardest hit by Covid.
