“In the first week of my administration, I am making clear that Seattle will continue to tackle this pandemic by following the science. We know what works – vaccines, testing, masks, and social distancing – and that we can only get through this if we work together as One Seattle. My administration is working urgently and aggressively to expand public-private partnerships and leverage all available resources to ensure healthy, thriving communities. Thanks to Virginia Mason and Othello Pharmacy, we are working to expand access to vaccine distribution swiftly with the help of trusted community partners and leaders.”

–Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell

“Even though no one wanted to start the new year with record-high case counts, it’s heartening to know that vaccines are helping to blunt the impact of the Omicron wave. We know the demand for vaccination and boosters has been extremely high. We are doing everything possible to assure that every person who wants a vaccine or a booster can access them. We appreciate the continued dedication and leadership from the City of Seattle, and from Mayor Bruce Harrell, in ensuring access to vaccines for all of Seattle residents.”

–Dennis Worsham, Interim Director, Public Health – Seattle & King County

As noted in Mayor Bruce Harrell’s January 5 announcement, the City of Seattle will also be expanding mobile vaccination capacity through community partner pop-ups with Othello Pharmacy to ensure an equitable vaccine distribution, pop-ups will have initial vaccinations, booster doses, and pediatric doses available. This community-based work will focus efforts on reaching the least vaccinated and vulnerable communities in Seattle. Disparities in vaccination rates between white residents and residents of color continue to be a public health equity challenge and are even more pronounced among children ages 5-11.

Again, to make an appointment at any of these vaccination clinic locations, eligible individuals should visit this website: Seattle.Signetic.com. To date, the City of Seattle has administered more than 320,000 vaccinations. You can also visit the Washington State Department of Health’s website to make a vaccine appointment at other times and locations.
