5:48 PM: Now that CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has given her OK to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children 5-11, parents can start arranging to get their kids vaccinated. We’ll be building a West Seattle list and appreciate any tips. For starters, we’re checking with the operators of the city’s newly opened West Seattle vaccine clinic – open Fridays and Saturdays – who told us at the launch announcement last week that they expected to be ready to go when pediatric clearance was given. We’ll add whatever we find out – updates to come!
ADDED: Alice says Walgreens is making appointments for kid vaccinations.
ADDED WEDNESDAY: The city says its clinics, which would include the one at Neighborhood House, will start vaccinating newly eligible children this weekend – by appointment only. Here’s the appointment link.
ADDED WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON: Thanks for the continued tips. A parent just scheduled through Bartell Drugs in White Center and says CVS (which has a location in Burien) plans to start offering vaccine appointments for that age group on Sunday. … Also, Seattle Public Schools has just announced vaccine clinics including three at West Seattle schools – details are here.
