UPDATE: City chooses location for West Seattle vaccination hub

11:15 AM: One month after the city announced it would open a new West Seattle COVID-19 vaccination hub – 4 1/2 months after closing the previous one – the location has finally been made public. During this morning’s City Council briefing meeting, a weekly chance for councilmembers to present quick updates, West Seattle/South Park Councilmember Lisa Herbold said the location would be Neighborhood House, which has a center at 6400 Sylvan Way SW in High Point. She said the official announcement is planned tomorrow (Tuesday, October 26). The city’s announcement last month said West Seattle would be one of three new vaccination hubs to help with the increased volume following booster recommendations. So far it’s opened one downtown but the West Seattle and South Seattle plans had remained undisclosed.

2:48 PM: We’ve since received the advisory that Mayor Jenny Durkan and Councilmember Herbold will be at Neighborhood House tomorrow morning for the announcement. The partner will be Pliable, the mobile health service that’s already had multiple pop-ups around West Seattle. According to the advisory:

Over the coming weeks, the clinic will operate on most Fridays from 11 am to 7 pm and on most Saturdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Appointments and more information is available at seattle.gov/vaccine.

We’re checking to see if its first day will be this Friday.

    Should have stayed open this entire time. We’re not there yet and far from it.

    For those looking for the moderna booster in West Seattle, the pharmacy appointments are booking out into later November at some places. The Rite Aid at Westwood had the most flexibility as far as I could tell.

      Cam  – Are you scheduling directly with the location? I used their vaccine finder and it said nothing was available in zip code 98136 or 98146.

      • CAM October 26, 2021 (7:19 am)

        No, I found for the pharmacies I had to go to each store’s website and search for appointments. The WA state and city websites weren’t pointing me to anywhere in West Seattle until the new vaccine hub became available midday yesterday.

    The website let me make an appointment for the West Seattle site for Friday.

    Wow, thanks for posting. I had no idea we could register for Moderna boosters already.

    I just scheduled for Friday.  There was no mention of bringing a vaccination card.  It seems like the booster should be recorded on it…?

    • CAM October 26, 2021 (12:16 pm)

      From the main page before scheduling. I realize it only says Pfizer but they probably just didn’t update the language after the new boosters got approved. There’s no reason to assume there’d be a difference in requirements.

    Will the City site be supporting the mix and match approach? I’ve heard some providers are having issues with that. My husband got the J&J and wants the Moderna booster– I was able to make an appointment for Moderna for him at the WS location noting his J&J status but it’s not clearly called out, that they’re prepared for that.

      I asked at the media briefing we just returned from (story in an hour or so). Yes. You tell them which shot you want.

    I just received a call a little while ago telling me that my booster appointment for today at Rite Aid on California Ave SW was cancelled because they ran out of vaccine:/ 

    • sb2780 October 26, 2021 (2:20 pm)

      Same. This happened to me last Friday with Rite Aid. Apparently they haven’t gotten any vaccine for several weeks from King County health. Has anyone successfully gotten a Pfizer booster in W. Sea in the last several days? It’s super frustrating because i had to make the appointment weeks in advance due to demand and then showed up and they had no vaccine.

    It’s time for the City to go door to door and make sure every eligible adult is vaccinated.  Safety should not be optional.

    Check out SeaMar Medical Clinics web site. They have all their locations listed, which vaccines are available by location, you can make an appointment or just walk in. They will mix and match. Bring your vaccine card.  The White Center location has ample parking. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
