There is a statewide vaccine distribution plan. The City of Bellevue is not administering vaccines at this time, but offers information here about them as a resource for residents.
The state Department of Health has the most current, accurate information about COVID-19 vaccines in the state. Check your eligibility with findyourphasewa.com, which also has a list of locations, including local hospitals, where you may be able to receive a vaccine. Vaccines are by appointment only and require proof of eligibility.
Older adults and others having trouble navigating online resources related to vaccines can get help from Community Living Connections of Seattle & King County.
While many people in Phase 1a – mostly high-risk workers in health care settings and firefighters – have received their first vaccines, Bellevue Fire Department mobile teams are administering vaccines to adult family homes in Bellevue.
The fire department is not yet equipped with vaccine doses and instructions to schedule vaccinations for the public. Sign up for alerts, and you will receive emails or texts about updates.
The people now eligible for the vaccine include all those in Phase 1a and those in tier 1 of Phase 1b – anyone over age 65 and all people over 50 who also live in a multigenerational household.
There is a limited supply of the vaccine at this point, so the state is managing distribution of the vaccine in a phased approach.
- Phase 1a: high-risk workers in hospitals and long-term care facilities; firefighter/medics; long-term care facility residents and staff; patient-facing staff in doctor/dental offices
- Phase 1b: People of all ages with medical conditions that put them at significant risk; police (in regular contact with the public); older adults in group homes; anyone over age 65; people over 50 who live in a multigenerational household (tiers and other details)
- Phase 2: teachers, critical workers in essential industries, people of all ages with medical conditions that put them at moderate risk, people and staff in homeless shelters, prisons, group homes for people with disabilities, older adults not in phase 1.
- Phase 3: young adults, children, other workers in important industries.
- Phase 4: everyone else
