Fastest way to make vaccine appointments

This news article has been archived.

The fastest service is self-service.

Due to the State's COVID-19 hotline's high call volume, the fastest service is self-service. The DOH recommends the following:

  1. Confirm Eligibility. Use Phase Finder to see if you're eligible to get vaccinated:
    • If you are currently eligible, you will get a confirmation.
    • Print or take a screenshot of this page.
    • If you sign up for emails, it will be sent to you automatically.
  2. Schedule Appointment. Call your doctor's office or health care provider to see if they have available vaccination appointments.
    • Or use the link provided in your confirmation to schedule your appointment (it will show you locations where you can get the vaccine).
  3. What to Bring. Take your printed confirmation (or bring your phone with the screenshot) from Phase Finder with you to your appointment and identification (with birth info).

Washingtonians without internet access, or who may not be comfortable using online tools, can call the COVID-19 hotline (1-800-525-0127) for help making appointments for three of the mass vaccination sites.

Please note: The hotline does not have special access to appointments -- they use the same scheduling tools available to the public for self-scheduling.

High-Volume Sites Open in King County

On February 1, King County opened two new community vaccination sites in Kent and Auburn to expand vaccine access to the most vulnerable older adults in King County. Establishing these sites now will help prepare for high-volume community access once more vaccine becomes available.

  • Kent ShoWare Center 625 W. James St. Park, walk, or arrive by transit and enter building. Wheelchair accessible.
  • Auburn General Services Administration Complex 2701 C St SW. Drive-through site

More information is available at Public Health’s vaccination website.

Four mass vaccination sites opened statewide

The DOH, with assistance from the Washington National Guard and local and private sector partners, is launching four mass vaccination sites throughout the state this week in Kennewick, Ridgefield, Spokane and Wenatchee.

Given the limited supply of vaccine that is available at this time and our state’s commitment to equitable and fair access to vaccine, the state is requiring that those seeking COVID-19 vaccines in its four mass vaccination sites must either live or work in Washington state.

People who register for vaccines at these four sites may be asked to provide one of the following:

  • driver's license or work/school ID,
  • letter with your address,
  • utility bill,
  • statement/letter with a Washington state address, or
  • voucher from an employer, faith-based institution, health care provider, school, or other registered organization or agency, etc. that the person lives or works in Washington state.

The vaccine site will not make a copy or record this information in any way. This is only to show that the person currently resides or works in Washington state.
