COVID-19 vaccine eligibility expands to everyone 16 and older in Washington state

Starting today, everyone 16 and older who wants a COVID-19 vaccine can receive one in Washington. The eligibility expansion marks the four-month anniversary of vaccine rollout in our state. Since mid-December, nearly 4.3 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered across the state. More than 2.67 million people have received at least one dose and more than 23% of Washingtonians are fully vaccinated. 

The Washington State Department of Health’s (DOH) Vaccine Locator tool is a great resource to help find a vaccine appointment in your area. If you need help making an appointment, please call the COVID-19 hotline at 1-800-525-0127, then press #. Language assistance is available.

Currently Pfizer-BioNTech is the only COVID-19 vaccine authorized for people 16 years of age and older. Moderna is authorized for people 18 and older. To help simplify registration for those age 16 and 17, DOH added vaccine type to Vaccine Locator and is in the process of retrieving information from providers to show on the website and app. Additionally, this age group may need consent from a parent or guardian to get the vaccine, unless they are legally emancipated. 


Standby list for Bremerton vaccine clinic open for Friday afternoon

Kitsap Public Health is looking for residents to be on standby for COVID-19 vaccination on Friday afternoon, April 16, if any unused Pfizer doses are available at their clinic in East Bremerton.

Please fill out this brief questionnaire to join the standby list. If you are needed for standby, Kitsap Public Health will call you on Friday morning with instructions for where to go and what time to arrive. Registering for and being called for standby does not guarantee that you will get vaccinated. However, by signing up to be on standby, you will help ensure that no vaccine doses go to waste. Thank you for your support!
