COVID-19 Vaccine Update

February 25, 2021

The FDA has granted Emergency Use Authorization for COVID-19 vaccines.

The COVID-19 Vaccine is not yet available to all patients.

Initial supply of the vaccine and vaccination appointments are limited.

Kitsap County is currently in Phase 1: Tier A1, A2, and B1 of the vaccination efforts for Washington.

This includes:

  • A worker in a healthcare setting
  • High-risk first responder
  • A patient in a long-term care center or similar setting
  • A person 65 years old or older
  • A person 50 years or older who lives in a multigenerational household

Our practice was recently approved by the State of Washington Department of Health to become a COVID-19 Vaccine Provider. We do not currently have any vaccines. We anticipate receiving a very limited supply of vaccines. We will administer vaccines to patients who are eligible as our limited supply allows. Please note, we are not currently creating a vaccine waitlist or scheduling patients. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources for mass immunization clinics. We will do our best to vaccinate patients as we receive vaccines.

Some clinics and pharmacies are now offering the COVID-19 vaccine. However, the supply of vaccines is very limited and demand for vaccination is extremely high. Thank you for being patient as supplies increase and more appointments become available. Everyone who is eligible will be able to get vaccinated, but it will take time. If you have an opportunity to receive your COVID-19 vaccine at another facility (pharmacy, hospital, or clinic) please do so.
