Syringes with doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, are shown next to vaccination cards, Saturday, March 13, 2021, on the first day of operations at a mass vaccination site at the Lumen Field Events Center in Seattle.

We are less than a week away from a new COVID-19 vaccine requirement taking effect in Washington. Simultaneously, officials are preparing to vaccinate the state's 5- to 11-year-olds. The pandemic is also a factor in planning the next legislative session.

Olympia correspondent Austin Jenkins joined Morning Edition's Kirsten Kendrick to talk about all that.
