COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Last updated April 6, 2021

Current Vaccines

  • We have only the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
  • We have plenty of second doses and that should continue to be available.
  • First dose supply remains limited. We ran out of first doses on March 31, and we will not get anymore sooner than April 12 per WA DOH with input from King County Public Health.

Scheduling

Please DO NOT CALL for COVID vaccine scheduling.

  • Both 1st and 2nd doses can be scheduled via the Square portal; use the link below.
  • WE ARE VACCINATING PHASE 1A1, 1A2, 1B1, 1B2, 1B3, and 1B4 per WA DOH. The WA DOH Phase Finder is no longer needed. Do not sign up if you are not in the current phase. Unqualified people will be turned away.
  • Second doses are now being scheduled during first dose vaccination appointment. We can also send you an email to schedule the second dose.
  • If you schedule a Square appointment, we have your dose on hand and will vaccinate you on that date and time. It is a solid appointment and vaccination. We are at 100% of doses delivered.
  • For any remaining PHASE 1A1, 1A2, 1B1, and PERSONS 65 years and up,, we will over-book you, or vaccinate immediately. Please email COVID@SeattleIDC.com to schedule an appointment in these groups. We will try to fit you in despite our lack of first dose vaccine.
  • For PERSONS 60 and up others with unique scheduling problems, travel, etc., please email COVID@SeattleIDC.com. We will get you vaccinated.
  • Current 1B3 and 1B4 will fill quickly.
  • Please DO NOT CALL for COVID vaccine scheduling.
  • Please DO CALL if you have an adverse event after vaccination.
  • Phone calls need to be limited to our regular patients and adverse event management, not vaccine scheduling. We cannot handle the volume.

Before you arrive

  • Please download, print, and complete these forms before arrival if possible: COVID-19 Consent Form
  • Please bring a photo-ID and your health insurance card with you. The vaccination will cost you nothing. We do bill your insurance or the federal government for the costs of vaccination, but not the vaccine, which is provided by public health and the US federal government. Health insurance is not required for vaccination.
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes early. We have planned timing based on the schedule. Most people wait less than 5 minutes to get their vaccine. You will have to wait 15-30 minutes after vaccination for medical post-vaccination monitoring.

Location

  • ALL VACCINATIONS ARE NOW IN SUITE 505 ON THE FIFTH FLOOR, not Suite 752
  • The Vaccination Suite 505 is provided by Menashe Properties and The Medical Dental Building.
  • We greatly appreciate the Owners and Staff of The Medical Dental Building for their contribution to our vaccination clinic. We could not do this without their support.
  • For Parking and transportation questions, please visit our Contact Us page.

Volunteers

We operate with the help of volunteers both medical and non-medical. Their contributions are greatly appreciated. If you are interested in volunteering please email wdinges@seattleidc.com. Volunteers do qualify for immediate vaccination. We could not do this without volunteer support.

Wait List

We do not maintain a long-term wait list. We do have a No-Waste List-see below. Please DO NOT come to the clinic for wait listing.

No-Waste List

We will now have a single ongoing list for people interested in being contacted for end-of-the-day extra vaccines to prevent wasting.

On each morning of vaccination, we will send a text to the first 10 people on the list. Those people will need to respond to the text that morning. With confirmation, you will need to come to the clinic at the requested end-of-day time and wait to see if we have extra doses. A text does not mean a guaranteed vaccination. If you do not receive a vaccination that day, you will still be on the same and increasing list position for the next vaccination day. If you receive a text and are unable to attend that day you will remain on the list as long as you reply to the text to let us know you are unavailable. If we do not receive a response by noon, your name will be removed from the list.

If you would like to be added to the list, please send an email with your first name, last name, and cell phone number to nowaste@SeattleIDC.com. Only 2 names per email address will be allowed to be on the list. Please DO NOT come in person to sign up for the list. We will only accept names via email. You will receive a confirmation that your name has been added to the list. We do not have the resources to report where people are on the list. If you do not want to be on the list any longer or if you get vaccinated at another site, please let us know by email or text.

We have changed to this approach to avoid people coming at early morning hours waiting in line to be relisted repeatedly. There is no perfect way to allocate this scarce resource, but hopefully soon everyone will have the chance to be fully vaccinated, and we won’t waste a single dose getting there-we haven’t yet. We generally only have 0-6 extra doses daily. That can vary higher on larger vaccination days.

FAQ

When will I get my second dose? We are now scheduling second doses during your first dose vaccination appointment. If you have not been scheduled for your second dose, email us at COVID@SeattleIDC.com for a link to the second dose Square Calendar.

Can the person accompanying me get vaccinated also? Unfortunately, no, we will only vaccinated persons with scheduled appointments who meet criteria.

I forgot my vaccination card for my second dose. Can you combine mine into one? Your vaccination card is a medical record. We cannot recreate your first dose record, so you will get a second card during your second dose if you have forgotten your first dose record card. Please keep both cards for your records. We recommend photographing the card(s) with your phone.

Where do I park? This simple answer is at the Pacific Place Parking Garage. Please see our Contact Us page for more information.

What side effects can I expect?

These are the side-effects seen in clinic trials of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. The full prescribing information is available online at cvdvaccine.com.

Many persons have used acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil), naproxen (Alleve) to limit post-vaccination symptoms.

If you have concerning symptoms, please call on clinic at 206-682-3444.
