The vaccination situation is back atop the roundup tonight:
WEST SEATTLE VACCINATION SITE: As reported earlier, the city’s new vaccination site at Southwest Athletic Complex has openings this week for West Seattle residents 65+, and they asked us to help get the word out. Start here. When the new site – alongside the city’s ongoing testing site – was announced a week ago, the city said it was “partnering with over 50 community-based and faith-based organizations” to get referrals for the new site. The continued emphasis on seniors is in the context of these vaccination rates from the county website – note in particular the 75+ stats:
Meantime, not long before we received the announcement from the city, we heard at a meeting that one of West Seattle that among those who will be vaccinated at the site this week are residents of the Arrowhead Gardens senior-living complex.
KING COUNTY’S NEWEST NUMBERS: From the King County daily-summary dashboard, the cumulative totals:

*1,415 people have died, unchanged from yesterday’s total
*5,145 people have been hospitalized, 8 more than yesterday’s total
*914,496 people have been tested, 319 more than Friday’s total
One week ago, the King County totals were 82,215/1,393/5,100/901,467.
WEST SEATTLE TRENDS: Here’s our weekly check of this stat – first time in two weeks because the county’s site was malfunctioning a week ago – with numbers shown in two-week increments via the “geography over time” tab on the daily-summary dashboard, combining the totals from the West Seattle and Delridge “health reporting areas” (HRAs). For the past two weeks, 69 positive test results; 67 in the 2 weeks before that; 121 in the two weeks before that. … We also are noting WS death totals each week. The total deaths for the entire pandemic in the two HRAs comprising West Seattle: 61, unchanged from last check.
