Kittitas County, WA -
We continue to operate in the Phase 1A and Phase 1B, Tier 1 categories per Washington State guidelines. In order to continue efficiently distributing vaccine, we are asking that if you were on the wait list and received your vaccine, to remove your information from the wait list.
“The majority of individuals that we are contacting for appointments are reporting that they already have an appointment, or they’ve received the vaccine,” states Incident Commander Darren Higashiyama. “We are asking individuals to help us be more efficient by removing their information from the waitlist.” In order to remove yourself, you must have an account through SignUpGenius. If you cannot access SignUpGenius, do not have an account, or do not have access to help, you can call the Vaccine Question Line at 509-933-8315 for assistance. (Directions to remove your name are included with the release).
In addition, if you are on the wait list please check your email regularly for appointment openings. The Incident Management Team (IMT) continues to reach out to individuals on the wait list when appointments become available.
On Monday February 15, the Kittitas County Public Health Department (KCPHD) will be closed. Kittitas Community Impact Dashboard information will not be updated on the 15th and the next vaccine update press release will be distributed on February 16.
Remember that eligibility is determined at the state level and Phase Finder is the tool to use in order to determine eligibility. Phase Finder eligibility does not guarantee an appointment. Clinic appointments do not guarantee eligibility. Please complete both processes in order to get a vaccine.
Please continue to help your friends and family who are eligible for the vaccine to access appointments. The IMT is providing information in multiple arenas (radio, partner agencies, newspaper) and we know that social media is not necessarily effective for the 1B, Tier 1 population. To read about COVID-19 vaccine, please visit www.doh.wa.gov or www.cdc.gov. If you have questions about COVID-19 testing, you may contact your healthcare provider or the KVH COVID clinic at 509-933-8850. If you have questions about your health, please contact your healthcare provider. If you are having a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the Emergency Department at KVH.
