Update: COVID Vaccine Appointments Not Available This Week

Posted February 5, 2021 at 9:56 pm by

Update: San Juan Coun­ty Health and Com­mu­ni­ty Ser­vices has received con­fir­ma­tion that San Juan Coun­ty will not receive the first dos­es this week. This is due to a state-wide dis­rup­tion to the sup­ply chain. Reser­va­tions will NOT be avail­able at 9 a.m., today, Feb. 8. 

From San Juan County

The Wash­ing­ton State Depart­ment of Health has delayed their reg­u­lar­ly sched­uled Fri­day release of vac­cine allo­ca­tion num­bers to vac­cine providers across Washington.

This dis­rup­tion to the usu­al noti­fi­ca­tion sched­ule pre­vents San Juan Coun­ty from being able to sched­ule vac­cine appoint­ments for the com­ing week.

Those who are receiv­ing their sec­ond dos­es will NOT be impact­ed by this situation.

Impacts on oth­er island providers’ vac­cine efforts are unknown at this time. Those providers will update patients and oth­ers directly.

Hope­ful­ly, ship­ment details are received over the week­end, and appoint­ments for San Juan Coun­ty vac­cine events next week can be released at 9 a.m., Mon­day, Feb. 8. Orig­i­nal­ly, appoint­ments were to be released at 5 p.m., Feb. 5. 

Accord­ing to DOH, the cause is due to vac­cine providers (not in San Juan Coun­ty) deliv­er­ing sec­ond dos­es as first dos­es, thus dis­rupt­ing the state-wide sup­ply chain.

At this time there is no guar­an­tee from DOH as to what num­ber of dos­es will be avail­able for next week

Your patience is appre­ci­at­ed. San Juan Coun­ty Health & Com­mu­ni­ty Ser­vices will be stand­ing by to deliv­er the first dos­es as soon as sup­plies allow.
