COVID-19 Vaccine Shipments Delayed by Severe Weather Across U.S.

public health seattle and king county logoIn King County, this delay will impact most vaccination appointments scheduled for Friday, February 19, and likely into the weekend. Vaccine providers will reach out to reschedule appointments. If your second dose appointment is cancelled, make sure to reschedule with the same provider as your first dose appointment.

Most vaccine supply expected this week was scheduled to fulfill second dose appointments. You should get the second dose as close to the recommended 21-28 day timeframe as possible, but you can still receive a second dose of both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose.

Kent and Auburn Community Vaccination sites: Due to the national delay in vaccine shipments, appointments scheduled for Friday, 2/19 at 4pm and later will be rescheduled. Affected patients will receive a call in the next three days to reschedule appointments. We will update our website by Friday afternoon with information about appointments scheduled for this weekend.
