It’s been said, “it takes a village to raise a child.” It also takes a village to stamp out COVID-19. Everyone who chooses to get vaccinated does it for a reason—to protect their family, to protect their children, to be less anxious, to visit their parents, or to get back to activities like seeing friends, resuming work, or returning to school, not to mention the importance of protecting oneself from the potential serious health impacts of COVID-19.
After deciding to get vaccinated, your friends, family and neighbors may need assistance in obtaining the vaccine—and that’s where you can help!
- If they have questions on the vaccine, you can help them get their questions answered. You could help them set up an appointment to speak directly with their health care provider to answer questions related to their medical history. Additionally, Kitsap Public Health Department has a one-stop site to answer all COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination questions.
- Help set up an appointment. Use the Washington vaccine finder to help find vaccine appointments available in locations in Kitsap County and other nearby locations.
- Help with transportation. Perhaps you can provide a ride to an appointment, even while taking appropriate safety precautions. Another option is to help them connect with Kitsap Transit’s ACCESS free transportation to vaccine clinics.
