    As of April 15, all people in Washington age 16 and older are eligible for COVID-19 vaccination.

    At this time, COVID-19 vaccines are NOT authorized for children YOUNGER than 16 years old.

    To search for open appointments, check How to get vaccinated information below.

    The J&J vaccine has been paused as the CDC reviews reports of a rare, severe type of blood clot in six people who have received the vaccine in the U.S.

    If you have an upcoming J&J vaccine appointment, it may be rescheduled or you may be offered a different vaccine.

    Contact your provider for information. All appointments at Public Health’s Auburn and Kent clinics remain scheduled. Auburn will use Moderna, Kent will use Pfizer.

    If you received the J&J vaccine more than a month ago, any risk is very low. If you received it within the last three weeks your risk of a blood clot is still very low. However, if you develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath, contact your healthcare provider or go to urgent care or an Emergency Room.

    Who is eligible?
    Everyone age 16 years and older is eligible for COVID-19 vaccination as of April 15.

    Vaccination is available for eligible individuals no matter your insurance status, immigration status, citizenship, place of work, place of residence, or your health condition.

    What vaccine options are available for 16– and 17–year–olds?
    The Pfizer vaccine is currently the only vaccine authorized for people under age 18.

    For 16 and 17-year-olds, make sure the location you choose offers the Pfizer vaccine (see below for information on parental consent).

    How do I find an appointment?
    Option 1:  Call your doctor’s office or health care provider to see if they have available vaccination appointments.
    Option 2:  Check with your local pharmacies to see if they have available appointments. Just like getting a flu shot at your local pharmacy, many pharmacy chains – including grocery stores – have COVID-19 vaccine appointments available.

    Option 5:  Schedule by phone if you need language interpretation or other assistance. For language interpretation, please say your preferred language when connected:
