Power of Providers (POP) Initiative

Welcome Health Care Providers!

Thank you for joining us, and thousands of other providers across the state of Washington, to encourage COVID-19 vaccination and work to reduce COVID-19 transmission, severe illness, and death.

Save this page and check back regularly for new resources and updated materials, the latest news on COVID-19 vaccines, and upcoming industry meetings and events.

The CDC recommends the 2023-2024 updated COVID-19 vaccines to protect against serious illness from COVID-19. Please refer to the Stay Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines (CDC) page for more information. The Washington State Department of Health is currently updating webpages and documents to align with the most recent CDC guidance.

About the POP Initiative


In 2021, the Department of Health established the POP initiative to help combat the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program has grown to include thousands of health care providers in many different roles, as well as several large and small health care organizations, across the state.

POP efforts have contributed to our state having one of the highest vaccination rates in the country. Endorsed by our state’s top medical organizations, we hope you will join this incredible effort today!

SAVE Intervention

We encourage providers to talk to patients using the SAVE intervention:

  • Seek: Seek your patients' COVID-19 vaccination status.
  • Ask/educate: If your patient isn't vaccinated, ask them about the vaccine and offer education if they're unsure.
  • Vaccinate: If your patient agrees to vaccination, provide them with a COVID-19 vaccine or a referral to a location that provides COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Empower: Empower your patients to share their vaccination status with the community.
Member Benefits

POP provides up to date, curated COVID-19 information, training opportunities, and educational materials for health care providers, both those who administer COVID-19 vaccines and those who don’t vaccinate but want to encourage vaccination. We’ll save you time and support you in improving patient communication, combatting misinformation, and making sure your staff has the latest clinical guidance.

When you join POP, we will send you a Community Vaccination Partner certificate you can display in your office and provide you with the latest information and resources through peer-to-peer webinars with free continuing education credit, a monthly e-newsletter, and more.
