County Apologizes For February 10 Vaccine Registration Errors

From San Juan County

When COVID vaccine registration opened at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 10, many hundreds of islanders logged on and searched by their zip code for available clinics, just as they were advised to do in our instructional video.

Unfortunately, the zip code search feature was not working.

While most applicants were able to locate the island clinics by scrolling down or searching by island name, we extend our sincere apologies to those who were not.

Clearly, the registration process remains frustrating. We will be working closely with the registration technology team at the Washington State Department of Health to ensure future roll-outs are smoother.

Almost 2,000 islanders were able to secure appointments, and some slots remain on Orcas and just a few on Lopez as of Feb. 10. In order to sign up, or to monitor for future registration windows, visit
