VACCINATION: Another West Seattle clinic

WSB reader Ann, who shared news last weekend of a West Seattle vaccination clinic, just got another email about one and forwarded it to share. The eligibility mentioned in the email she received from a UW Medicine mailing list: West Seattle/South Park residents, 65 and older. The clinic is happening next week, the email says, and will again be at the Southwest Athletic Complex parking lot. While last time she got a registration link, this time it’s by phone – the number in the email she received is 206.520.8758. Caveat: No indication of what hours they’re taking calls, nor of whether you have to be on their list. Meantime, please note that we’re continuing to feature vaccination info in our nightly roundups (last night, thanks to reader tips, we mentioned Pharmaca in The Junction will be offering vaccine); you can always find the most-recent roundup in our archive of pandemic coverage.

4:51 PM NOTE: See Bill‘s comment before you try calling.

    West Seattle Pharmaca appointments look like they have already filled up ! 

    Thank you West Seattle Blog for letting everyone know about them !

    I feel like I’m on a nation-wide scavenger hunt! People (kindly) leave “clues” about where to find a vaccination site, only to find it’s no longer available when you check it out. I’m limited on where I can drive (West Seattle/Burien area), so heading over to Rainier Ave or Northgate is not really an option. I don’t want to sound like Meghan McCain, and will patiently wait my turn, but it’s so frustrating not knowing when/where the next option is going to happen!

      Hey Ray, starting Monday, around 8am, try going to  and scroll down to the list of Clinics. 
      Look for Burien Medical, Seattle Medical (in South Park), or White Center Medical. 
      It will either show “No Vaccines Available” or it will show Vaccine availability. It will indicated Type of Vaccine – Moderna or Pfizer.  

      Refresh the page frequently.  They advise that you arrive by 3pm. 
      I would strongly suggest that you arrive shortly after they open (a little after 8am)  (to a clinic that is currently showing vaccine availability).  Be prepared to do a lot of waiting. 
      They might have it set up so that after they receive your paperwork, you provide them your cell phone number, and you go back to your car to wait for their phone call, when it is your turn.
      On that very same web page, the top left column has forms that you can click on that you can print in advance. 
      You can fill them out at home, which will speed your interface with their staff. 
      If the website is difficult to navigate, perhaps a neighbor or relative can assist you.  

      Best of luck to you !

        Thank you for the info. I’ll keep checking it.

    You can find appointments at the local techie created website. It is updated every 3 minutes.  I have gotten 42 people appts at RiteAid for next week.

    The UW contact number works but the information in the blog post is quite inaccurate. You can only schedule an appt for vax at this number if and only if (iff) (1) you are on the UW contact list and have received written notification of being on the list and (2) if you live within certain specific zip codes. As a heads up, most of West Seattle zip codes are NOT among their target zip codes including but not limited to 98116 – so to be clear 98116 and most West Seattle zip codes are not part of this vax outreach – this is aimed more at South Seattle. This while vaccination mess is a whirlpool of confusion and chaos. More like a disorganized randomly held lottery. Unless you’re a rich repugnican Covid denier buying yourself a vaccination “just in case” – that subset seems to be getting vaccinated at quite a high rate. Good luck to normal average souls one and all.

      Thanks for reporting back. This was directly from the email that Ann received, and the info she forwarded a week ago resulted in others getting appointments, so we passed this along too, but with a caveat. I will make a note above pointing to your comment.- TR

    Just saw this on NextDoor:City of Seattle standby list for COVID-19 vaccinations. At the end of each day, the Seattle Fire Department Mobile Vaccination Teams may have 2-3 doses of the vaccine that they must use immediately. To make sure the City uses all our available doses, we’ve created a “standby” subscriber list. Residents who are 65 and older, live in ZIP codes most impacted by COVID-19, and have NOT yet received their first dose of the vaccine are eligible to sign up for the standby list. You also must be able to meet the Seattle Fire team quickly. Sign-up for standby list: standby list SHOULD NOT be an individual’s only plan for getting vaccinated, and you SHOULD NOT expect to be notified every single day.

      We published that in last night’s roundup. Thank you.

Sorry, comment time is over.
