Vaccine Qualification, Scheduling Vaccinations Online and Public Vaccination Events - Update as of 4/16/2021


Access to Vaccines & Eligibility, New Online Scheduling of Appointments and Vaccination Events

  • Effective April 15, all Washingtonians over the age of 16 will be eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Note, each vaccine type has age and access limitations.
  • **NEW! Eligible people may schedule a vaccine appointment at our Vaccine Clinic at https://calendly.com/masonhealth**
  • To ensure equity, we are supporting both scheduling Mason Health patients, Mason County residents and the general public via our partnership with Public Health, pre-scheduled community outreach events and our new online registration system. If you know someone having a hard time signing up for an appointment using a computer, please contact the Mason County Senior Center at (360) 426-7374. Mason Health is providing regular vaccine clinics at the Senior Center.

If You Are 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. Spanish Consent Forms are also available: Vacuna Contra el COVID-19 Formulario de Consentimiento.
  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 from the Vaccine Clinic and Mason Clinic. We are offering the Pfizer vaccine for offsite vaccine clinics.
  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.
