Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department press release.
The latest State Department of Health (DOH) data shows vaccines offer protection against the worst COVID-19 outcomes. According to the DOH report, unvaccinated people make up more than 78% of COVID-19 hospitalizations and 75% of COVID-19 deaths.
When you get your COVID-19 vaccine, or your booster if you’re already fully vaccinated, you protect yourself from serious illness, winding up in the hospital—and death. Everyone 5 and older is eligible for the vaccine. And everyone 12 and older is now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose. Find your dose today at tpchd.org/vaxtothefuture.
