Walla Walla County vaccination clinics in August, September

 

August 26, 2021



WALLA WALLA—Walla Walla County Department of Community Health (DCH) and healthcare partners will open vaccine clinics on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday beginning August 25. All clinics will be held at the Providence Southgate campus with varying appointment times. The clinics on August 25, 26, and 27 will run from 11 a.m.-7 p.m., and the clinics on September 1, 2, and 3 will run from 3-7 p.m.

All clinics will offer both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Janssen, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine. There will be a mix of first- and second-dose appointments, along with some third-dose appointments for eligible immunocompromised individuals. Walk-in appointments are welcome for those who wish to register on-site.

Anyone arriving at the Southgate campus for a vaccine should use the main entrance of the building and not the urgent care entrance of the facility. Anyone under the age of 12 years old is not eligible to receive a COVID vaccine. Those interested in receiving the J&J vaccine must be 18-years old or over. People younger than 18-years old will only be eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. They must have written parental consent or bring a parent or guardian with them to their vaccine appointment.

Everyone interested in scheduling an appointment should complete the following steps:

• Step 1: Go to https://www.covidwwc.com/clinics.

• Step 2: Scroll through the list of first-dose clinics and click the “Schedule an Appointment” button after confirming eligibility under the selected clinic.

• Step 3: Select an appointment time and complete the registration process.

Residents who are homebound or without Internet/computer access can call the DCH helpline (509) 524-2647 and leave their name, date of birth, phone number, and a message stating that they are homebound or do not have access to the internet or a computer.

DCH encourages all residents to visit the County COVID website or text COVIDWW to 888777 for information on upcoming vaccination clinics.
