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.
