STATEWIDE NUMBERS: Find them, county by county, on the state Department of Health page.
WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: 110.3 million cases worldwide, 27.8 million of them in the U.S. See the nation-by-nation breakout here.
VACCINATION CLINIC: We – along with the mayor and others – visited a pop-up clinic in West Seattle today.
VACCINE DELAY: If you had an appointment canceled or postponed this week, it might be because the winter storms hitting much of the country have affected vaccine shipments.
VACCINATION NUMBERS: During the weekly briefing by state health officials today, they highlighted the latest statewide vaccination report. Toplines: 1.2 million doses have been administered. They’re averaging 26,000 a day. 83 percent of the doses the state has received have been given. But the allotment from the feds is still less than half what providers are requesting.
VACCINE MAP: The map on the state website has a new look, and now it shows one potential West Seattle location, the Junction QFC.
