VACCINATIONS: West Seattle flu and COVID pop-up clinics this weekend

If getting vaccinated is part of your plans in preparing for winter, here’s a reminder about clinics coming up this weekend, all for both children and adults:

FLU SHOTS: Everyone is welcome, not just students/staff/families, at the next Seattle Public Schools-presented clinic this Sunday at Madison Middle School (3429 45th SW), 9 am-3 pm Sunday (October 23). The appointment link is here.

COVID SHOTS: One opportunity on Saturday, 10 am-2 pm at the South Delridge Farmers’ Market (9421 18th SW; WSB sponsor), details here including how to book an appointment (recommended but not required) … Two opportunities on Sunday – one is also at Madison Middle School, partly concurrent with the flu-shot clinic, 10 am-2 pm; info and registration link here, although we’re told they’ve been taking walk-ins at these clinics too. … Also on Sunday, the Community School of West Seattle (9450 22nd SW) is hosting a COVID-vaccination clinic for ages 6 months and up, 1 pm-6 pm. Registration links are in our calendar listing.

    Cost? That is the issue.

      Pretty much all insurance covers flu and Covid shots with no out of pocket cost. They fall under preventive care that can’t be charged to the patient under the ACA.

    With most insurance companies, flu shots are free. And I believe Covid shots are free for everyone, regardless of whether they have insurance.

      “Covered,” would be a better word for it. The service isn’t free. Insurance companies have to cover it, and the Fed even says what the price should be, but the providers are charging a wide range of costs to insurance companies. Unfortunately, some providers get away with charging excessive amounts.

    Thank you for sharing this info! Do you know if there is a contact for the CSWS clinic?:   ” on Sunday, the Community School of West Seattle (9450 22nd SW) is hosting a COVID-vaccination clinic for ages 6 months and up, 1 pm-6 pm”On the calendar listing, it mentions the bivalent booster for 5+   “including the Bivalent Booster for ages 5+!!!!”   However, the bivalent booster wasn’t one of the options in the linked sign-up. I signed up for 12+ bivalent booster, to get the appt. scheduled.  But, don’t need to go unless they actually have the 5+ bivalent booster.  Thanks!

      Well, the Moderna bivalent booster is a selection for 5+ I guess.  Was hoping for Pfizer because that’s what the kiddo has had thus far and it seemed to go fine.

    If insurance does not cover your flu shot, the cost is $50. By noon there may be a neighbor helping neighbor fund.

  • Brayton October 19, 2022 (10:13 pm)

    The Seattle Visiting Nurse page linked to for scheduling an appointment only has a limited list of insurance companies accepted. If yours isn’t on the list you’ll be charged $50 for the flu shot. You don’t find this until nearly the end of the process. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
