CORONAVIRUS: City promises to open West Seattle vaccination site to help with boosters

The city says it’ll open three new COVID-19 vaccination sites to help with boosters, now that they’re officially recommended for people in some groups. King County has already begun offering them at its sites. From today’s announcement:

Working with health care partners, the City of Seattle will be opening three additional vaccination sites beginning in October that will host weekly clinics to increase access to vaccinations. Sites are expected to serve West Seattle, South Seattle, and Central Seattle with partners, locations, and hours announced in early October. The City of Seattle will also relaunch mobile teams to focus on delivering boosters to older adults. To date, the City of Seattle administered nearly 260,000 vaccinations.

The city closed its West Seattle vaccination hub almost four months ago.

    Got mine last Friday at a major pharmacy chain. Open appointments all week when I checked. Know many other health care workers and elders that did walk in over the weekend with little to no wait.

      Safeway pharmacy in Admiral was jumping today despite the downpour!  I encourage folks to schedule online in advance if you can.

        Safeway’s online scheduler has said for several days the closest locations with Covid vaccines are Rainier Valley, Auburn & Ballard.  But they’re taking walk-ups at the Admiral store?

          Looks like Safeway fixed their website.  More locations listed now, including Admiral and Roxbury stores.

    Many educators may not know we qualify too. (I work in a high risk position as a kindergarten aid) Got my booster at Walgreens Saturday. Had an apt but still waited an hour. Understandably  They were short staffed. So worth it though!
