Kitsap Public Health offering COVID-19 vaccination appointments in Bremerton and Poulsbo

Kitsap Public Health is offering a limited number of first-dose COVID-19 vaccination appointments this week at clinics in Poulsbo and Bremerton. Appointments are expected to fill quickly as demand for vaccination is very high and supplies are limited. Other vaccine providers may have appointments available.

Wednesday appointments are open to everyone eligible under Phase 1a and Phase 1b, Tiers 1-4. Thursday and Friday appointments are open to everyone 16 or older (people receiving Moderna vaccine must be 18 or older).

Limited appointments are offered for Kitsap County community members who received their first dose of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine from another provider but are unable to find an appointment for their second dose. Learn more at

Inslee announces three counties to rollback to Phase 2; Kitsap remains in Phase 3

Gov. Jay Inslee today announced the rollback of three counties not meeting the Phase 3 Healthy Washington metrics for reopening activities. The three counties returning to Phase 2 are Cowlitz, Pierce, and Whitman counties.

Last Friday, the governor announced updates to the Healthy Washington criteria. In order to move down one phase, a county must fail both metrics for case counts and hospitalizations. Under the previous plan, a county only needed to fail one metric to move back a phase.

See the governor's Medium page for more details on these announcements.
