Vaccine FAQs 4/11/2021

As of 4/15/2021 EVERYONE 16 and older is eligible for vaccine

  • Johnson and Johnson is one shot only and you must be 18 years old and older.

  • Johnson and Johnson may not be as effective for those 65 and older. 

  • Otherwise the 3 available vaccines work equally well.

  • See below for questions about J & J and blood clot risk. This is still evolving.

  • For now the data supports it is safer to take any of the 3 offered vaccines even with questions about J & J as everyone being vaccinated is what will keep you safe.

What about blood clots and the J & J vaccine? 

Can I use tylenol or ibuprofen in case of the above? 

  • Yes. There is some suggestion not to pre-treat with these medicines before you get vaccinated as it may blunt your immune response. But using these meds after you are vaccinated for symtpom relief is considered safe and appropriate.

Covid Vaccine

While we have done the work to get vaccines, the state has yet to provide clinics vaccines for their patients. They continue to focus on mass vaccination sites and pharmacies. We will post here if we are given a supply.

You can check the following sites. If you have the chance to get vaccinated, please accept. Locations of available vaccine change daily. 

 

  • University of Washington waitlist 844.520.8700. 

  • Univeristy of Washington stand by list text ENROLL to 844.520.8700

  • You can get help over the phone from Washington state's COVID-19 Assistance Hotline: Dial 1-800-525-0127, then press #. Available Monday-Friday, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, Sunday, and observed state holidays 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. NOTE: If someone can assist you, the online Phase Finder may save time.

We are moving forward and relief is in site. Please hang in another 3 months in hopes we all get vaccinated. We don't want to back slide! We don't want to prolong this.

 

Continue with masks, hand hygiene, testing, and social isolation.​ Please no non essential travel. We're almost there if we can stay smart.
