North Olympic Peninsula vaccination clinics set

Where, when and for whom

Vaccination clinics are planned throughout the North Olympic Peninsula.

Both Jefferson and Clallam counties are in phase 1B1 of the state’s vaccination plan. Both are using age restrictions primarily for the start of the new vaccination phase.

Phase 1B1 includes people older than 70 and caregivers in multi-generational households older than 50.

Due to limited amount of vaccine, as of Wednesday, Jan. 13, Clallam County has primarily restricted the vaccines to residents older than 70 and Jefferson County has restricted it to residents 85 and older.

People who were in a prior phase — Phase 1A — and have not received the vaccine yet, are also able to schedule appointments at the appropriate clinic.

Jefferson County clinics

Vaccinations are being overseen by Jefferson Healthcare hospital and appointments for the week of Jan. 18 and on will open at 9 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 14.

The Tri-Area Pharmacy has partnered with Jefferson Healthcare to assist with the administering of the vaccine, with appointments available Tuesday, Jan. 19 and Thursday, Jan. 21 at the Port Hadlock based pharmacy.

Currently, appointments are only for people 85 and older who are Jefferson County residents or have a Jefferson Healthcare primary care provider.

Appointments at Jefferson Healthcare and at the Tri-Area Pharmacy can be made online at https://jeffersonhealthcare.org/covid-19-vaccine/ or by calling 360-344-9791.
