COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine is here.  Vaccines have been authorized for emergency use by U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). These vaccines have also passed independent review by medical experts in the Scientific Safety Review Workgroup, as part of the Western States Pact. Visit the Washington State Department of Health for additional information.

Currently, Pfizer is the only vaccine approved for children 12 years and older.  Please check the type of vaccine when making an appointment.

Vaccine Incentive

Gov. Jay Inslee announced new incentives to help encourage unvaccinated Washingtonians to get the COVID shot.  The Washington State Lottery will be conducting a “Shot of a Lifetime” giveaway series during the month of June, working with state agencies, technology companies, sports teams and higher education institutions across the state to offer a myriad of different prizes to vaccinated individuals.  The incentives announced today include:


  • Lottery cash drawings, with prizes totaling $2 million
  • Higher education tuition and expense assistance
  • Sports tickets and gear
  • Gift cards
  • Airline tickets
  • Game systems and smart speakers


Vaccinated Washingtonians don’t need to do anything to be entered in the four drawings. The Lottery will automatically gather names from the DOH statewide immunization database.
