Communications & Community Outreach


Superintendent Reykdal and Kaiser Permanente have partnered to announce "Get Ready," a large-scale school vaccination plan to equitably and safely vaccinate Washington educators and school staff when they become eligible under the state’s vaccination distribution plan. Kaiser Permanente will administer the vaccine through Kaiser Permanente owned and operated medical facilities, as well as partner with OSPI to establish school-based vaccination sites.

Who will be eligible for the vaccine under this plan?

Through this partnership, both public preschool and public and private K–12 school employees across Washington state will be provided with vaccination support. This includes state-tribal education compact schools, charter schools, and educational service districts.

Where are the vaccination sites?

Kaiser Permanente vaccination sites to support school employees will be available along the I-5 corridor, from Smokey Point to Southwest Washington, and around Spokane. Kaiser Permanente will administer the vaccine at Kaiser Permanente owned and operated medical facilities and will collaborate with OSPI to stand up population-based, remote “pop-up” vaccination sites. A list of locations will be made available in the coming weeks.

What about Central Washington and rural parts of the state not served by Kaiser Permanente?

OSPI is committed to expanding the reach of this plan into all areas of the state and welcomes collaboration from other health care providers to support school employees in Central Washington.

Does this plan change the state's vaccination timeline for school employees?

No. The goal of the “Get Ready” plan is to ensure school employees are vaccinated quickly and efficiently when they become eligible according to the state’s vaccination distribution plan.
