The City of Seattle will be opening a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Neighborhood House in the High Point neighborhood, in West Seattle, starting Oct. 29.

Booster doses of COVID vaccines available in Washington for eligible individuals

At this clinic, eligible vaccinated individuals can receive booster shots of Pfizer, Moderna, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Once approved by federal and state officials, the clinic will also offer first and second Pfizer doses to children ages 5-11.

“Since the onset of the pandemic, Seattle has led the way on COVID-19 with the fewest cases, hospitalizations, and deaths of any major U.S. city, and we did that by following the science,” said Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan in a written statement. “Science is telling us today that the best way to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our community from COVID is to get vaccinated. As we move into the holiday season and join with friends and family more frequently indoors, vaccinations become even more important.”

“The new West Seattle Vaccination Clinic will add capacity to provide thousands of vaccines and boosters to the West Seattle and South Park communities, supporting equitable access in one of our more diverse parts of the city,” Durkan continued. “I’m grateful to Neighborhood House and Pliable, who continue to rise to the occasion to support our neighbors all throughout the pandemic. Through our partnership we can continue to ensure the City of Seattle remains one of the highest vaccinated cities in the country.”

The new West Seattle clinic will have the capacity to give up to 1,600 shots per week. Pliable nursing teams are helping to operate the clinic. It will open Friday, Oct. 29, and will operate Fridays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Proof of insurance and identification are not required; proof of vaccination is recommended for those receiving second or booster doses.

Seattle to open COVID vaccination hub downtown, relaunch mobile teams

Earlier in October, the city relaunched the Seattle Fire Department Mobile Vaccination Teams to help fill gaps in vaccine administration with the capacity to provide up to 200 vaccinations per week. The West Seattle clinic announcement also follows the launch of a high-capacity vaccination clinic over the weekend in downtown Seattle, at the Amazon Meeting Center.

Find a vaccine near you with the state’s Vaccine Locator tool, or call 833-VAX-HELP. For a list of vaccines offered in Seattle and more details, visit the city’s website here.
