(nbc)

May 4, 2021: The Food and Drug Administration is expected to authorize Pfizer-BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine for administration to adolescents by early next week, according to a federal health official with knowledge of the agency's plans.  The move would allow many American middle- and high-school students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 well before the start of the next school year, using a shot Pfizer claims demonstrated "100% efficacy" in children as young as 12 years old with side effects similar to those that have occurred in young adults.  (CBS News)

Standing Orders document that lists the thigh as an alternative site for both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.”

April 28, 2021: The United States is reporting an average of 2.7 million daily COVID-19 vaccinations over the past week, according to data from the CDC, about equivalent to levels one month ago.

April 15, 2021: Dr. Fauci says this is a pause and not a cancellation of the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine. It will likely last days to weeks to determine next steps. "I doubt very seriously if we're talking about weeks to months," he told CNN on Wednesday.

COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    When will a COVID vaccine be available to the general public in Seattle?

    President Biden has declared that all individuals 16 years of age and older will be eligible for the COVID vaccine no later than April 19, 2021 nationwide. Many states have already opened vaccination to all adult residents. You can confirm Washington’s COVID vaccine eligibility on Solv.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    Where can I get COVID vaccine in Seattle?

    The COVID vaccine is currently available to eligible individuals through health clinics, hospitals, health departments, pharmacies, and doctors’ offices including urgent care centers. COVID vaccine locations in Seattle—as well as the availability of appointments and doses at each location—are changing daily. Solv, through partnership with vaccingfinder.org and others, is actively maintaining the list of providers above and is refreshing at least daily, so check back frequently. Additionally, check directly with vaccine providers near Seattle as last minute availability for eligible populations sometimes opens up.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    What pharmacies are administering the COVID vaccine in Seattle?

    Independent pharmacies, as well as regional and national chains, are administering the COVID vaccine across the country. Most are partnered with HHS directly to make the vaccine available as quickly as possible. Here are a few of the major pharmacy chains administering the vaccine with details on how to register for an appointment:

    • Albertsons. Albertsons will be making the COVID vaccine available at stores nationwide based on regional distribution and eligibility schedules. Appointments fill up fast and they will release appointments as they receive supply.
    • CVS. CVS stores nationwide are adding the COVID vaccine to their online schedule as it becomes available in each market, allowing people to schedule both their first and second doses (as applicable).
    • Costco. Costco pharmacies will be administering COVID-19 vaccines as soon as they are available, in accordance with CDC and state guidelines. Register on their website. Note: Please do not contact the local Costco pharmacy as they are unable to schedule an appointment or provide current eligibility requirements.
    • Kroger. Kroger is partnering with federal and state agencies to deliver one million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine per week across their pharmacies, clinics, and off-site events. Their website will be regularly updated with information on local availability.
    • Rite Aid. Rite Aid pharmacies are scheduling vaccine appointments in accordance with local and state eligibility requirements. Check the linked PDF for the latest details. Note: Please do not call your local Rite Aid pharmacy for a vaccine appointment.
    • Target. Target expects to be able to start distributing the COVID vaccine their their partnership with CVS and their on-site pharmacy locations. Check the CVS pharmacy website for updates and dates when more vaccines will become available.
    • Walgreens. Walgreens will be providing COVID vaccines to consumers at all of its 9,000+ store locations. Check their website to see which locations presently offer the vaccine and their appointment availability.
    • Walmart. Walmart is administering the vaccines based on state and federal eligibility guidelines and is scheduling appointments at thousands of their stores nationwide. Check their website often for availability as the vaccine continues rolling out to more stores.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    When will children be able to get the COVID vaccine in Seattle?

    According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, there could be "enough information to be able to safely vaccinate children of virtually any age" by the end of the year, pointing to recent data from Pfizer on the safety and efficacy of its COVID-19 vaccine in adolescents aged 12-16. Once the FDA provides emergency use authorization (EUA) for the vaccines to be administered to children, it is likely that the same providers in Seattle that are currently administering the vaccine to adults will begin accepting appointments for kids.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    Are there COVID vaccine clinical trials in Seattle?

    Many medical research facilities and organizations are conducting, or are part of, vaccination research trials right now. If you are interested in participating in one and have an academic medical center near Seattle, you may want to reach out to them directly. Or, contact your local health department for their direction. Clinical trials are also currently underway for children under the age of 16, and are necessary for approving vaccine use in these age groups.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    How many COVID vaccine doses will I need?

    The first two COVID vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna each require two (2) doses of the COVID vaccine. Each dose must be of the same product, and will need to be separated by either 21 days or 28 days, depending on the vaccine. That means if you received your first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, your second dose must also be the Pfizer vaccine. The Johnson and Johnson vaccine, approved for use in the US on February 27, 2021, only requires one dose. Consult your healthcare professional if you have additional questions.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    How long will the COVID vaccine last?

    New research finds that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines provide viral immunity for at least 6 months, but since COVID-19 is so new, experts aren’t sure if immunity will wane after that. A vaccine is a medicine designed to defend against diseases by introducing the immune system to a virus in a safe way. This process allows the immune system to learn how to defeat it by generating antibodies specific to the virus. These antibodies will help ward off future infections and in some cases prevent re-infection. Scientists are still researching how long antibodies last for coronavirus (COVID-19), which could inform how long a vaccine will last.

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    Why are there so many COVID-19 vaccines in development?

    In addition to the notable Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines, it is good that there are as many as 170 COVID vaccines now in development worldwide, moving at a rapid pace unlike anything we have seen previously. Given the billions of doses of vaccine needed throughout the world, multiple vaccines from multiple manufacturers will likely be necessary not only to support the scale, but to also successfully immunize people of all ages, demographics, and medical needs.
