First day of community COVID-19 clinic a success; all appointments filled this week

During a community COVID-19 vaccine clinic today, operated by Kitsap Public Health District and the Kitsap County Emergency Operations Center, approximately 600 people were vaccinated. Our site managers reported the clinic was operating smoothly in its first day.

St. Michael Medical Center, Kitsap County Medical Reserve Corps volunteers, Kitsap County Emergency Medical Services, and the Kitsap County Medical Society all generously supported the clinic.

Registration for the site opened Monday and all available appointments for this week were booked very rapidly. We expect to open the clinic again next week, provided the state allocates vaccine to support the site. The Health District will announce the next opening as soon as possible. Walk-ins are not accepted at the clinic. Sign up here for updates via text or email.

As we prepare for our next clinic opening, we are also working to resolve problems with the registration system that didn't save appointments many people tried to make for this week. The Health District emailed those community members that could be identified Monday evening to apologize for the issue and provide next steps. We know the registration process caused confusion and frustration and we will continue making improvements to better serve our community.

In a press conference today, Gov. Jay Inslee said in a call he had with the Biden administration earlier in the day, states can expect a 16 percent increase in COVID-19 vaccine allotment over the next three weeks. Along with delivery of the vaccine will be special syringes that are able to extract an additional dose out of the vaccine vials.

Yesterday, Gov. Inslee announced progress toward the state’s goal of administering 45,000 vaccine doses a day. As of Monday, the state’s current seven-day rolling average was 23,960 doses administered.

The governor also noted a record number of COVID-19 vaccines administered in a 24-hour period, with around 40,000 doses reported as of Monday. Washington also officially passed 500,000 vaccine doses administered and reported. That is 57.4 percent of the doses provided to the state by the federal government.
