COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements for Professional Services Providers

On August 9, 2021, Gov. Jay Inslee issued a proclamation that requires state agencies, healthcare workers, and educators to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  DSHS has determined this includes professional services providers contracted with DDA.

DSHS contracted providers who are licensed, certified, or registered as a healthcare professional with the Department of Health must be vaccinated by October 18, 2021.

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 the October 18 deadline.

The complete list of healthcare professionals who must be vaccinated can be found at Healthcare Professional Credentialing Requirements

The Washington State Department of Health’s DOH Vaccine Locator can help you make an appointment or find a walk-in site to receive the vaccine.
