This survey is part of our commitment to asking for, listening to, and utilizing the feedback and insights of our residents, customers, and stakeholders. With this survey, we hope to learn about the current utilization of vaccine services in Whatcom County, why people make the choices that they do, and barriers to vaccine access. The information collected will be used to inform future Whatcom County Health and Community Services immunization project planning and service delivery.

Community Health Specialist Alexus Kim is quoted in today’s announcement as saying, “Our ultimate goal is for everyone to be healthier by reducing the number of people who are sickened by preventable diseases and increasing access to vaccines for people who want them. If, for example, we hear from survey respondents who lack health insurance or transportation to a vaccine clinic, those are barriers to health access that we want to know about and guide our work toward addressing.”
