Eligibility Expanded to Adults Age 65 and Over at Kent and Auburn Community COVID-19 Vaccination Sites

public health seattle and king county logoPublic Health’s Kent and Auburn community vaccination sites have expanded eligibility to include adults age 65 and older. The two sites will begin providing covid-19 vaccination to people 65 and older starting Monday, March 1. The sites will continue to provide covid-19 vaccinations for adults who require home care, and their caregivers.

For this week starting March, 1, Public Health is able to open additional appointment slots as a result of the amount of COVID-19 vaccine received from Washington State Department of Health. To check eligibility and sign-up for a slot this week, visit Getting vaccinated in King County.  We anticipate the slots will fill up fairly quickly. Public Health will continue to share updates on our COVID vaccine webpage as more vaccine becomes available.

At this time, registration is open to residents of south King County who are:

  • Age 65 and older OR
  • A caregiver or home care worker taking care of someone age 50 or older who cannot live independently. The caregiver or home care worker does not need to be 50 or older
  • Specific groups of people age 50 and older. Those who are:

– Unable to live independently and receiving care from a caregiver, relative, in-home caregiver or someone who works outside the home.

– Living with AND caring for kin (examples include caring for a grandchild, niece or nephew. This does not include parents living with their child.)

Registration Information

The Kent and Auburn COVID-19 vaccine sites are open Monday through Saturday, 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM. Vaccinations are by appointment only.
Residents can register for an appointment at Public Health’s vaccine website, Getting vaccinated in King County.

Currently, both COVID-19 vaccine supply and appointments are limited. Residents may experience delays, or it may take time before appointments are available due to anticipated high demand. This will get easier as the vaccine supply increases.
