Washington is currently in Phase 1B - Tiers 3 and 4 of the phased approach and is prioritizing individuals that qualify under those guidelines. Phase and Tier information changes frequently, so we encourage community members to check the Washington state Department of Health website to determine their vaccine eligibility.
For vaccine-eligible individuals, we now have a new and improved waitlist! Our upgraded vaccine waitlist utilizes cloud technology to send each person a personalized link, allowing them to directly schedule their appointment at a time and vaccine location that works best for them!
Washington is currently in Phase 1B - Tiers 3 and 4 of the phased approach and is prioritizing appointments for individuals who fit within those guidelines.
Due to inconsistent vaccine supply, we are not scheduling new COVID-19 vaccine appointments at this time. Patients are encouraged to join our vaccine waitlist. As vaccine supply becomes available, we are scheduling appointments off the waitlist.
We continue to experience unpredictable vaccine allocation and do not know from week to week how much vaccine will be available to our patients. Inconsistent vaccine supply makes it very difficult to schedule appointments in the future
because we cannot guarantee appointments until we have vaccine on hand. We have implemented a vaccine waitlist to ensure we are only
scheduling appointments we are confident we can fulfill. Be advised that our waitlist is quite long and will take a significant amount of time to work through. We appreciate your patience.
We are excited to be vaccinating our workforce, patients and community members. The COVID-19 vaccines have undergone intense safety studies and monitoring and are safe and effective. This is the light at the end of the tunnel and our pathway back to normal. Don't miss your shot!
We continue to work closely with federal, state and local partners to align our distribution plans and follow the Phased Approach adopted by the Department of Health. Patients and community members can be the first to know about COVID-19 updates at Skagit Regional Health by signing up for our newsletter.
