Vaccination clinics set this week

All 16 and older eligible for shot

All Washington residents 16 and older are eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and appointments are available at a variety of clinics across the North Olympic Peninsula.

Shots are available at various local pharmacies, county pop-up clinics and other health clinics.

As of last Monday, 46.57 percent of Clallam County residents had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 37.95 percent are fully vaccinated, according to the state’s dashboard.

In Jefferson County, as of last Monday 56.65 percent of residents had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 42.87 percent of residents are fully vaccinated, according to the state’s dashboard.

Vaccinations for COVID-19 are free to the recipient, and a second dose appointment is made when the person receives their first shot.

Pfizer’s is the only vaccine approved right now for people 16 and older.

The Moderna and the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines are approved for those 18 and older. Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine was recently restarted after being paused due to rare cases of severe blood clots in young women.

Many local pharmacies across the Peninsula are scheduling individual appointments.

The state has created a vaccination locator at https://vaccine locator.doh.wa.gov.

Some of the larger grocery store chains such as Walmart, Safeway and QFC receive regular shipments of COVID-19 vaccines.

Appointments can be made on their websites when available: Walmart, Walmart.com/covidvaccine; Safeway, https://www. safeway.com/vaccinations/home; QFC, https://www.qfc.com/rx/covid-eligibility.

Clallam County Emergency Management has partnered with the Port Angeles Chamber of Commerce to put on three pop-up clinics in downtown Port Angeles at the site of the former ice skating rink, 121 W. Front St.

The clinics will provide Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine for people 18 and older and are scheduled from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. today, Friday and next Sunday, May 2.

Pop-up clinics do not require appointments and are walk-up first-come first-served.

On Saturday, Clallam County Emergency Management will also run a pop-up clinic from 9 a.m. to noon at the Sequim Farmers Market.

The county also is working with the Barhop, 124 W. Railroad Ave. in Port Angeles, for two “a Shot and a Beer” pop-up clinics using Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The clinics will be open to those 18 and older, but only those 21 and older who receive the shots will also be able to each get a free beer.

The clinics are scheduled from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on May 8 and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on May 10.

Appointments for Jefferson Healthcare’s clinics can be made at https://jefferson healthcare.org/covid-19-vaccine and the next first-dose clinic is scheduled for Friday using the Moderna vaccine, said Amy Yaley, hospital spokesperson.

Forks Community Hospital has a Moderna vaccination clinic scheduled for Friday. More information can be found at www.ForksHospital.org.

The Jefferson County Department of Emergency Management and Jefferson County Public Health will open a Moderna vaccination clinic in Brinnon at the high school gym, 46 Schoolhouse Road from 9 a.m. to noon this coming Saturday.

There are 100 doses available for this clinic. To schedule an appointment, go to bit.ly/brinnonvax. Individuals who do not have access to a computer can call 360-344-9791 to make an appointment.
