Today, Feb. 26, UW Medicine administered its 100,000th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to recipient Wanda Herdon. This 100,000 figure includes first and second doses and both the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech formulations.
UW Medicine’s first vaccines were administered on Dec. 15, 2020, to first responders and clinical staff. Vaccine clinics were rapidly established at UW Medical Center (Montlake and Northwest campuses), Harborview Medical Center and Valley Medical Center. Today, vaccine recipients are community members who qualify under Phase 1B of Washington state’s distribution plan.
100,000 doses is a drop in the bucket, but it’s also another dose closer to protecting our community.
