    Vaccination Information from Skagit County Public Health:
    Please use https://vaccinelocator.doh.wa.gov/  to see vaccine locations by area and get access to registration tools.  If you have employees that are 16-17 years old encourage them to seek vaccine at a Pfizer provider, such as the Skagit County Fairgrounds vaccine site.  Most major pharmacies such as Costco, Walgreens, Safeway, and Haggen have appointments each week.  Sea Mar clinics offer walk in vaccination.  Skagit Regional Health, Island Hospital, and PeaceHealth Family Practice all offer vaccine appointments.  Skagit County Public Health runs a high volume vaccine site at the Skagit County Fairgrounds.  There are many access points for vaccine in Skagit County!

    People who struggle with internet access can call our Skagit County Vaccine Hotline at 360-416-1500 to schedule an appointment over the phone for clinics at the Skagit County Fairgrounds.  We have English and Spanish language call takers.

    If you or your employees would like information about COVID-19 and vaccines please see the excellent resource: https://vaccinateyourfamily.org/vaccines-diseases/covid19/

    COVID-19 has caused serious illness and death to restaurant employees.  We value your partnership in helping your employees get protected by getting vaccinated.  Let’s come together to stop this pandemic.
