DOH Provides Free Mobile Service to Local Communities


by Kathy Mellstrom

The Care-a-Van is a new mobile COVID-19 vaccination effort offered by the Washington State Department of Health and available to partners across the state. Their goal is to serve communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and to work closely with community partners and local health jurisdictions to increase access to vaccines for priority communities. Attached please find a flyer with more information about the Care-a-Van and how partners can request this service. The direct link to the online request form is

As stated, the Care-a-Van team works closely with local health jurisdictions and many times your local health jurisdiction will request to handle your vaccination event, especially if there is a scheduling conflict with Care-a-Van. Any event, big or small makes an impact on your community and mutually benefits our common goal of protecting our communities. We greatly appreciate all of your efforts.
