VACCINATIONS: Extra appointments available for 5-to-11-year-olds at city’s West Seattle clinic this Friday, Saturday, too.

We reported yesterday on extra appointment availabilities at this Saturday’s Madison Middle School clinic for local Seattle Public Schools students ages 5 to 11 whose parents want them vaccinated against COVID-19. Tonight, we just got word from the city that extra appointments are available for all children in that range this Friday and Saturday (November 19-20) at Neighborhood House High Point (6400 Sylvan Way SW). Go here to make an appointment. Side note, Mayor Durkan is expected to visit the clinic tomorrow afternoon to commemorate its success – more than 4,000 doses administered to children and adults since opening October 29th, though it’s open just two days a week.

    I have given this App. to so many of my friends but it keeps telling them no Appts. Available for the Highpoint Site.  Do we know what is going on?  Only the Amazon one comes up for Appts.

      I just checked and it shows me – if I choose 5-11 shots – the West Seattle clinic with appointments available.

    WSB,  I guess I should have said for the Boosters not just for the 5-11 age group.  Do we know why they can’t make appts for the other age groups?  It seems like it just opened and now it will not let you make appts.  I just thought it was kind of weird.Thank you

      There are West Seattle booster appts there now, I just checked – about a dozen each for Moderna and Pfizer. Didn’t check J&J.

    I’ve received a total of 3 vaccinations from the West Seattle mass vaccination sites with the fire department and today this pliable group.  In my experience only the 2nd appointment was quick and effortless to book, because the city did the follow-up appointment direct referral.  I believe they open up slots over time depending on how you answer earlier questions and what your address is.  I booked my booster shot on the 9th and the first appointment available was today, based on whatever screening.  The 1st vaccination I booked had a pattern of suggesting a single appointment was available, then having me enter a lot of info, and then showing nothing available when I got to the calendar step.  It got pretty frustrating trying to book back then, tbh.  Fortunately, the appointment was really easy today and I even had no problem switching from a Pfizer to Moderna shot during check-in (I figured I’d boost with the “alternate” from my initial vaccinations to save the Pfizer doses for the kids).  The 15 min observation was the longest part of the appointment today, which wasn’t the case for the SFD doses.

Sorry, comment time is over.
