Who is eligible to schedule for vaccination in Jefferson County?

We have paused all future appointments until additional shipments of vaccine are received from the state.  We will continue to update our website with new information as it becomes available.  Volunteers at Emergency Management will not be answering calls during this time.

Please use this page for the most up-to-date local immunization information.

We will also use newspapers, radio, social media, and email (be sure to update your email in MyChart).  The complexity of this task is one that few of us have witnessed.  Have patience and understand we have a dedicated team who wants nothing more than to get everyone immunized as quickly as possible.

Register to be notified when it's your turn.

Use the button above to submit your name, email and birthdate to be notified when it is your turn.

For those 64 and younger, it’s not your turn yet.  Check back to the website frequently to learn when registration for notifications opens.

Notification email does not guarantee an appointment. It does eliminate the need to check the site daily to see if a new age band has opened.

How can I make a COVID-19 Immunization appointment?

We have paused all future appointments until additional shipments of vaccine are received from the state.  We will continue to update our website with new information as it becomes available. Volunteers at Emergency Management will not be answering calls during this time.

The State says I’m eligible because I’m over 65, why won’t Jefferson Healthcare vaccinate me now?

Jefferson County is the oldest county in the state, 12,000 of our residents (more than 1/4 of our population) are over the age of 65.  At this time, we have not been allocated enough vaccine to do a complete immunization rollout for phase 1B.  The county public health officer and our Chief Medical Officer believe it is imperative to immunize our oldest and most vulnerable community members first.  Starting with the oldest population protects the most at risk for hospitalization and death from COVID-19.

I am 50 years and older and I live in multigenerational household taking care of my grandchildren/parent/family member. When can I get vaccinated?

For now, we will focus on 65+ population until clarification from State on the multigenerational component.  Once we have a better understanding of our vaccine shipments from the state we can open to include this important population segment.

What about vaccinating other household members?

Until we receive further instruction from the state we are only vaccinating by age.

How quickly will scheduling open to younger patients?

The more vaccine we receive, the more we can schedule.  We rely on the State to supply us with vaccine and we have requested large enough quantity to cover us until it arrives.

Is there a waitlist?

There is no waitlist.  Appointments can be scheduled through our website when your age band is announced.

Why are we only vaccinating Jefferson County Residents and Jefferson Healthcare patients?

The state is basing vaccine allocation on county population,  Jefferson Healthcare’s primary responsibility is to county residents and the patients we serve.

When are you going to open a mass immunization clinic similar to other communities?

Jefferson Healthcare has received several allocation of Pfizer vaccine, which consists of 975 doses in each allocation.   Once we receive larger allocations, we will begin to open up broader age bands and possibly, large scale vaccination events.

Once I have an appointment, where will I go to get a COVID-19 Immunization?

All immunization will occur by appointment only at the Jefferson Healthcare Drive-Thru Immunization Clinic located on 7th & Cleveland Street behind the Manresa Castle.

If I choose not to get vaccinated when my phase begins will I be able to schedule at a later tier?

Past phases will always be eligible for vaccination and those individuals can schedule based on availability of vaccine.

I have scheduled my appointment but need to change the date or time. What do I do?

The COVID-19 Vaccine line can help change previously scheduled appointments 360.344.3097.  Do not call to schedule your first appointment.

I am phase 1A can I still get vaccinated?

Past phases will always be eligible for vaccination if supply is on hand. Individuals who qualify for phase 1A are still eligible to receive immunization once additional vaccine is received from the state.  Those who qualify can email vaccineresponse@jeffersonhealthcare.org for further instructions.

Are there reactions to the vaccine?

Some individuals report vaccine reactions after receiving the vaccine.  It is important to talk with your primary care provider if you have a history of allergic reactions to any vaccine, injectable or any component of the COVID-19 vaccine (for more information, see the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine Emergency Use Approval Fact Sheet).

You can also learn more COVID-19 Vaccines and Allergic Reactions

The CDC recently posted this article: Allergic Reactions Including Anaphylaxis After Receipt of the First Dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine — United States, December 14–23, 2020

Do I still need to wear a mask after my vaccine?

Yes, wearing a mask provides an additional layer of protection.  The same way social distancing and hand washing provide layers.  When you receive the vaccine you have an additional layer of protection.

I would like to volunteer to help with vaccination efforts.

Reach out to EOC to become preregistered as an emergency volunteer jcdem@co.jefferson.wa.us

Is there any reason I would not be able to schedule right now?

  • Not have had a lab-confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 in the last 10 days
  • Not be sick with symptoms of fever, cough, body aches, chills, shortness of breath, sore throat, fatigue, congestion, runny nose, headache, loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea
  • Not have had contact with a lab-confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • Not be allergic to any component of the COVID-19 vaccine (for more information, see the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine Emergency Use Approval Fact Sheet)

Which vaccine is Jefferson Healthcare administering?

We are currently vaccinating with the Pfizer vaccine allocated to us by the Washington State Department of Health.  The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses no sooner than 17 days between doses.  Vaccine doses must be the same brand.  First dose Pfizer must receive second dose Pfizer.

Can I get vaccinated anywhere else?

Jefferson Healthcare is partnering with Tri-Area Pharmacy in Port Hadlock for vaccination.  The Pharmacy is following the same age band criteria Jefferson Healthcare is using.

There are other vaccination locations throughout the state.

Vaccination brands must stay consistent.  If you receive Pfizer vaccine for your first dose you must receive Pfizer for your second dose and the same is true for Moderna.

What is the next phase to be eligible for vaccination?

On January 6, 2021, the Washington State Department of Health announced the tiered approach to phase 1b.  The state has not moved to 1b, information was announced for planning purposes.  This new information allows Jefferson Healthcare to enhance our distribution plan to serve the community efficiently, equitably as well as forecast inventory deliveries from the state.  Our organization is currently busy scheduling phase 1a vaccinations and we need to be able to focus on them in the short term. We will reach out to the community with the next steps, once we know more.  Please continue to visit our website.
