According to the city, about 41% of Seattle residents were fully vaccinated as of April 30.

"As of today, nearly 70 percent of eligible Seattleites have begun their vaccination process. This is an incredible milestone, and if we continue this effort, we’ll reach a level of community protection where so many of us – particularly our most vulnerable – will be protected from the most serious effects of this virus," said Durkan. "We’ve reached a turning point in our vaccination efforts: Now anyone who wants a vaccination in Seattle and King County can get one. If you have already been vaccinated, be a good neighbor and help your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers get vaccinated. It’s up to all of us to defeat this pandemic."

The city has administered 170,000 vaccinations to eligible adults since January.
