Kittitas County, WA -
More COVID-19 vaccine has arrived, which means Kittitas County will continue to hold vaccination clinics at the Fairgrounds and the Putnam Centennial Center beyond this week. At present, the Fairgrounds has distributed 281 vaccines today and 284 vaccines were given at the Putnam Centennial Center today in Cle Elum.
If you are in the 1A or 1B (Tier 1) phase, please join the waiting list using SignUpGenius, which will be used to schedule next week’s appointments, as well as future appointments as additional vaccine supply arrives. The IMT will be going completely through the wait list for appointments before taking individuals who are not on the list. Appointments are required for COVID-19 vaccines and walk-ins are not available at this time.
In addition to press releases, information goes out via our website, social media, radio, and television. There is now a COVID-19 vaccine phone line available to answer general questions regarding COVID-19 vaccine at 509-933-8315. The vaccine phone line will be staffed 9 am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, for general questions. The IMT is asking the public to assist individuals in the 1B phase (Tier 1) to access appointments. We have reached out to medical providers to assist patients signing up for appointments and we ask that our community help friends and family make appointments.
Regarding COVID-19 variants, there are no additional recommendations or action steps that will be changing with the emergence of the COVID-19 variant B.1.1.7 in Washington State. Disease surveillance will continue via laboratory samples. If Kittitas County is notified of a testing sample of the variant, we will work closely with the State Department of Health. Currently, there are no additional steps beyond surveillance.
