Now that the COVID-19 vaccine is available in Washington, you may be wondering how and where to get the vaccine in Seattle.

We’ve done the research for you and have compiled it into an easy-to-follow list.

Here’s what you need to know about getting the COVID-19 vaccine in Seattle:

Who can get the vaccine? 

Governor Jay Inslee has updated Washington’s COVID-19 Vaccine Phase A1 and A2 to include individuals aged 65 and older.

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) expects that it will take until around mid-to-late January to finish vaccinating high-risk health workers and those in long-term care facilities (Phase A1 and A2).

When will you be able to get the vaccine? 

Those wondering when they’re able to get vaccinated should use a new online tool created by the Washington Department of Health.

By inputting a few points of information, such as your age and whether you’re a healthcare worker, the aptly named Phase Finder provides a rough estimate of how far down the line you are in Washington’s COVID phased vaccine distribution plan.

What should you bring to your appointment? 

Washington State requires that those seeking COVID-19 vaccines must either live or work in Washington State.

Those who register for vaccines will be asked to provide one of the following:

  • driver’s license or work/school ID
  • letter with your address
  • utility bill
  • statement/letter with a Washington State address
  • voucher from an employer, faith-based institution, healthcare provider, school, or other registered organization or agency, etc. that the person lives or works in Washington State

The state will not be searching for citizenship or immigration status, as all eligible people living or working in Washington should get vaccinated. The site of the vaccines will not make copies or record information in any way. The check is only to ensure that the person currently resides or works in Washington State.

Where can you get vaccinated in Washington? 

Washington currently has four mass vaccination sites located in Kennewick, Ridgefield, Spokane, and Wenatchee. They are currently appointment only to those who have pre-registered and are eligible for the vaccine under Phase 1A or 1B-1.

In addition to these mass vaccination centers, clinics, pharmacies, and healthcare providers will still be offering the vaccine. You can find a vaccination site on DOH’s website.
