CORONAVIRUS: Monday 4/26/2021 roundup

Our nightly roundup of local pandemic-related information:

STILL THOUSANDS OF APPOINTMENTS: On Sunday, we reported that the city was suddenly energetically encouraging anyone and everyone to use this link to get a vaccination appointment. Today, they shouted it even louder, including an AlertSeattle bulletin. At last check, they still have 15,000+ appointments available at city-run sites including Nino Cantu Southwest Athletic Complex (2801 SW Thistle). If you don’t want a city appointment – see our list of other options in Saturday’s roundup.

NEWEST KING COUNTY NUMBERS: From the Seattle-King County Public Health daily summary:

*96,597 people have tested positive, 256 more than yesterday’s total

*1,503 people have died, unchanged since Saturday

*5,713 people have been hospitalized, 21 more than yesterday’s total

*1,028,782 people have been tested, 398 more than yesterday’s total

One week ago, those totals were 93,937/1,493/5,590/1,009,048.


WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: 147.5 million cases, 3,117,000 deaths – 572,000 in the U.S. See the other stats – nation by nation – here.

ONE WEEK TO NEXT REVIEW: One week from today is the state’s next assessment to decide whether counties can stay in their current phases or move backward/ahead. If the decision was made today, King County would be rolling back, because we’re flunking both of the criteria, as shown here.

VACCINE DAY OFF: Arthur’s in Admiral will be closed tomorrow (Tuesday, April 27th) so its staff can get vaccinated.

NEED FOOD? Two opportunities this week – both on Friday (April 30th): The nearest Food Lifeline distribution is 2-5 pm Friday at 815 S. 96th; Highland Park Elementary is offering drive-up grab-n-go food boxes during that same time period (1012 SW Trenton).

    Might be time to simplify the qualification form now. A number of questions are pointless now the vaccine is so widely available.

    Vaccine alert: Heard again from Westwood Village Rite Aid. They have a dozen shots of Pfizer that have to get administered by 4:30 pm. Call the pharmacy at 206-938-4253. – TR

    I filled out the whole damn form again and they won’t let you schedule a second dose with the city’s West Seattle site. Not having to go way up north again would be very much preferable but there are absolutely no options for not scheduling both doses. It’s ridiculous. Maybe they could get some of those appointments filled if they’d FIX THE STUPID SIGNUP.

      There are some appointments at pharmaca for Tuesday May 11th. Don’t need to have first shot there. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
