COVID-19 Vaccination

Vaccinations and Scheduling-Update as of 1/22/2021


Phase 1, A1 Vaccinations

Mason Health is continuing to vaccinate individuals who qualify for Washington’s Phase1, A1 guidelines, which includes:

  • Healthcare workers (nurses, physicians, pharmacists, dental staff, etc.)
  • EMS/Fire
  • Long-term care facility staff and patients

Phase 1, B1 Vaccinations

Beginning the week of January 18, Mason Health started scheduling Phase 1, B1 eligible Mason County residents and Mason Health patients:

  • Those >65 years old
  • Those >50 years old who live in a multigenerational household

Scheduling a Vaccination Appointment (Mason County Residents and Established Patients Only)

If you qualify for Phase 1A or Phase 1B1, and if you live in Mason County or if you are an established patient with us, you can email Mason Health at covidvaccine@masongeneral.com and include your name, date of birth, phone number and your occupation (to ensure you qualify for Phases 1A and 1B1) . **Please note this information is being sent as plain text and is not encrypted at this time.** Once you have sent your email, a representative from Mason Health will follow up with you. Please know the demand is high, therefore we kindly ask that you only send your email to us once. We will process your request as soon as we are able. Thank you in advance for your patience.

***For those scheduled for a vaccine:***

  1. Please fill out the COVID-19 VACCINE CONSENT FORM and bring it with you to your scheduled appointment. If you are unable to bring this form with you, it will be provided and given to you at the time of your appointment.
  2. Be prepared to stay an additional 15 minutes after your vaccination for monitoring.
  3. Review informational links about the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in the “Downloads” section (scroll to bottom of page). We are currently offering the Moderna vaccine.
  4. Click VSafe for Information about the after vaccination health checker

As demand is high and vaccine availability is limited, you may experience wait times in getting an appointment. Our goal is to work with the county to get all eligible community members vaccinated as quickly as possible, while recognizing the roll-out will take time. Please know that we are eager to vaccinate our patients and community members, we appreciate your understanding and patience.

DOH also announced the beginning of Phase Finder, an online tool that allows people to assess their eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine. It’s being tested now and will launch broadly January 18, 2021. Phase Finder will be available in multiple languages and will be used to confirm individual eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccine providers and immunization programs will also be able to use Phase Finder to do assessments of vaccine need by zip code.

State's Vaccine Dashboard:

In partnership with Microsoft, DOH will introduce the new vaccine dashboard, which will be the state’s main source for regular vaccine data reporting. The dashboard will include vaccine ordering and administration data, including breakdowns by county and by demographics. It should be updated three times a week. Look for the dashboard to launch next week.
