SPOKANE, Wash. — Washingtonians 16 and older will become eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine on Thursday. So, how do you book an appointment?

There are a few ways you can track one down.

Check Washington’s vaccine finder

Go to vaccinelocator.doh.wa.gov and type in your zip code. This will show you a list of clinics, pharmacies and other locations that are offering vaccinations. The site will provide an address, the distance from your zip code and will say whether or not there are appointments available. If there are, they will provide a website you can use to book an appointment.

Check your local mass vaccination site

There are a handful of mass vaccination sites across the state, including one at the Spokane Arena. If you would like to get a vaccine there, you can check appointment availability here. 

Contact your provider or a local provider

Local healthcare providers, like Providence, CHAS and MultiCare, are also offering vaccinations. You do not need to be a patient there to receive one.

Call the COVID Hotline

Call I-800-525-0127 or 211 to contact the state’s COVID-19 Hotline. A representative will walk you through booking an appointment.
