OLYMPIA—On June 1st, the Washington State Department of Health launched a new mobile vaccine service called “Care-A-Van” that will deliver vaccines to communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.

Counties with higher vaccine gaps by race and ethnicity.

Communities with a high rank on the Social Vulnerability Index for COVID-19.

Sectors with recent outbreaks.

Communities overrepresented in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.
