ALL Washingtonians age 16 and up are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. There is a pause on J&J for now, but Moderna and Pfizer are available (for 16 and 17 year olds, only Pfizer has been approved at this time).
A Note from Jefferson County Health Officer, Dr. Tom Locke
Clallam and Jefferson Counties are leading the State in deploying these vaccines rapidly. Priorities for vaccination are determined by Washington’s Governor and vaccination administration sites are required to adhere to these restrictions.
At Jefferson County Public Health, we work very closely with Jefferson Healthcare and local pharmacies on COVID vaccine deployment. Whenever vaccine becomes available, scheduling can be done through the following:
Jefferson County Public Health and Department of Emergency Management Beginning Sunday, March 21, Jefferson County Public Health together with the Department of Emergency Management will hold an appointment-only vaccination clinic at the Chimacum School District Multi-Purpose Room, 91 West Valley Road beginning at 9 A.M.
