VACCINATION: Thousands of city appointments available

For a while, the city was quite guarded about vaccination appointments – even canceling ones made via links that they claimed were shared without authorization. Then, just days ago, they were sending special signup codes to people on the waitlist. Suddenly today, a direct link is being widely and officially shared for ~20,000 appointments available at the city’s hubs, including West Seattle’s hub at the Nino Cantu Southwest Athletic Complex (2801 SW Thistle). Anybody 16 and up who hasn’t been vaccinated yet can start here.

    Thank you WSB!!!  You have helped me get vaccinations scheduled for all of my family members.  First starting with my parents in February, then myself and husband in March and now my 17 year old son.

      Thanks in turn to everyone along the way who has sent tips/announcements. Perhaps we’re to/almost to the point where everyone looking for an appointment will easily find one.

    I received an email from the city Friday night and will be receiving my first dose this week at the West Seattle hub.

    Has anyone been able to get a second dose in the area despite getting their first dose outside the city? All places I have seen require you to get the first shot in the city as well.

      I’ve heard Sea Mar clinics offer second doses of the Moderna vaccine for walk-ins.

    That’s interesting. I’ve been on the city’s waitlist to be notified when appointments are available and heard nothing at all from them. Not one word. I had to go out of town to get my shot. Obviously the reason they have thousands of appointment unfilled because they aren’t following up with people who signed up to be notified. That’s beyond lame.

      They sent out codes to some of the people on the list just.a few days ago. Several people mentioned it here, and a household member got one (although they already had been vaccinated at a city site).

      Peter, maybe they have the wrong email address because I put myself on the list to be notified and I have gotten several emails.

    Tim, try Valley Medical Center in Renton. I received my first dose in Monroe where they do not schedule your second. I called Valley, they answered the phone, and they booked my second dose. That easy! They have both Moderna and Pfizer. Good luck!

    I am glad to see that the city run sites now have an Appt. Link to sign up.  Just sent it to my son who did have an Appt. with the VA since he is a Veteran.  They sent him an e-mail last week that it had been cancelled.  Thank you

    Maybe if they had used a more transparent process from the beginning instead of signing up to maybe be called if they think you are important enough, they wouldn’t be in this situation 

Sorry, comment time is over.
