Jan 25 2021, 11:02 am

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) is launching four mass vaccination sites throughout Washington state this week.

Sites are located in Kennewick, Ridgefield, Spokane, and Wenatchee and will be open by appointment only to those who have pre-registered and are eligible for the vaccine under Phase 1A or 1B-1.

Each site will receive assistance from the Washington National Guard as well as local and private-sector partners.

“As our vaccine allocations increase, these sites will provide additional capacity to get people vaccinated quickly and efficiently across the state,” said Umair A. Shah, MD, MPH, Secretary of Health, in a press release. “With much less supply of vaccine than people currently eligible, it is going to take time which will require patience from all of us. I want to thank our partners who are working together to help us build the infrastructure needed to reach our goal of 45,000 vaccinations a day.”

Individuals should first use the Phase Finder to confirm they are eligible.

Once confirmed to be eligible, individuals must register online. Each mass vaccination site is currently using a different registration system.
