All Washington residents over the age of 16 will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine beginning April 15, Gov. Jay Inslee announced Wednesday.

The news comes as WSU leaders are encouraging faculty, staff and students to remain vigilant in combating the spread of infections.

“Getting vaccinated as soon as possible is more important than ever,” WSU President Kirk Schulz wrote in an email to Pullman employees Wednesday.

The easiest way to find a place where vaccine appointments can be made is by visiting Vaccine Locator. Simply entering a Zip code yields a list of sites within 50 miles. The site also has a detailed explanation of who is currently eligible to receive the vaccine.

WSU’s COVID-19 vaccine guidelines have recently been updated and can be found on its COVID-19 website.
