COVID-19 shot clinics to be held in Chimacum

Two COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be held next week in Chimacum, according to Jefferson County Public Health.

The clinics are Saturday, Jan. 8 in the Chimacum High School Multi-Purpose Room. The school is at 91 West Valley Road.

The first clinic is 10 a.m. to noon for children 5 through 11. The Pfizer vaccine will be administered. According to health officials, shots will also be available for that age group in the afternoon.

To schedule an appointment, log on to prepmod.doh.wa.gov//appointment/en/reg/7962199340 or call 360-344-9791.

The second clinic is for people 18 or older, and the Moderna vaccine will be available for first, second or booster vaccinations. The clinic is from 1 to noon p.m.; to schedule an appointment, log on to prepmod.doh.ws.gov//appointment/en/reg/9127689090 or call 360-344-9791.

People wanting a Moderna booster should be six months past their second dose. Officials note that Moderna boosters are half the dosage of a first or second dose.

Others can also receive a Moderna booster if they are six months past a second dose of Pfizer or two months past a Johnson & Johnson vaccination.

For those who are moderately to severely immunocompromised, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended people receive a full, third dose. (Moderna boosters are a ½ dose). Jefferson Public Health officials note that full, third doses will not be offered at the Chimacum clinic. (Contact a healthcare provider or local pharmacy to schedule a third dose, if needed, instead.)

Those who have registered for shots should bring proof of vaccination if scheduling a second or booster dose.

Forms of proof include a vaccination card or a copy of a vaccination record from Washington State Department of Health, which you may retrieve at no cost by logging into wa.myir.net/register. Digital or hard copies of proof will be accepted.

The clinic will not replace lost vaccination cards, according to Jefferson Public Health.

Booster shots are also available at some area pharmacies and through healthcare providers. To learn more, visit jeffersoncountypublichealth.org/1529/COVID-19-Vaccine.
