Don't procrastinate, vaccinate!

Everyone who lives, works, or attends school in King County can now schedule a first and second vaccine or just a second vaccine today at the City of Seattle's vaccination site. Vaccinations do not require an advance appointment, but you can still make an appointment if you like. They are free, insurance is not required, and while presenting an ID card at the time of your vaccination is recommended, it is not a requirement. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian when they receive their vaccine and require authorization from a parent or guardian during the registration process.

Where to get your free vaccine:

For the most comprehensive and up-to-date information visit the City’s vaccination website at www.seattle.gov/vaccine. The site contains vaccine information in seven languages, and in-language assistance is also available over the phone with the Customer Service Bureau Monday–Saturday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m. (206) 684-2489.

Even as more residents get vaccinated, please continue to follow all public health guidance. Visit this website from Public Health – Seattle & King County for more information.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, schedule a free test at one of the city's sites.
