Posted March 5, 2021 at 4:30 am by Hayley Day
COVID-19 vaccinations are top of mind for everyone right now. That’s why we provide you with the latest news and updates on vaccine eligibility and availability at PeaceHealth.
On San Juan Island, as of March 4, PeaceHealth received a small number of Moderna booster, or second dose, vaccines this week.
This supply is adequate to provide approximately 100 second doses of the vaccine for PeaceHealth patients who received their first dose several weeks ago.
Other vaccine supply updates in Washington:
Bellingham: PeaceHealth received shipments of both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines this week. This supply is adequate to provide approximately 4,400 prime, or first, doses of the Pfizer vaccine and more than 1,500 second doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.
Longview: PeaceHealth received some additional vaccines from the state this week. We will continue to actively schedule eligible patients who qualify under the 1B category.
Skagit: PeaceHealth received a small number of Moderna vaccine doses this week. This supply is adequate to provide approximately 100 booster, or second, dose vaccines for eligible patients at the PeaceHealth Burlington Family Medicine clinic.
Vancouver: PeaceHealth received approximately 3,500 vaccines from the state this week. We will be actively scheduling PeaceHealth patients who are eligible under 1B.
As a friendly reminder, please do not contact our clinics. PeaceHealth will contact you if you are eligible for scheduling this week. Because supply allocations to PeaceHealth from the state vary each week, you may be able to get vaccinated sooner at an alternative vaccine location. For potential alternate vaccination locations, please visit the Washington State Department of Health COVID-19 vaccine page (Español).
Please remember that eligibility is not a guarantee of availability.
Q: Is there a cost to get the vaccine?
No, the vaccine is free of charge. If you receive the vaccine from PeaceHealth, the vaccine is free, and you will not have any out-of-pocket costs. If you receive the vaccine somewhere else, there may be a vaccine administration fee, which will be billed to the patient’s insurance.
Q: Will PeaceHealth receive the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine?
A key Food and Drug Administration advisory panel unanimously backed Johnson & Johnson’s single-shot COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use on Saturday, Feb. 27. PeaceHealth is prepared to distribute the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine should it receive doses in the future, but there is no current timeline for this. Vaccines are being prioritized according to guidelines from state public health agencies and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Learn more about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine here.
