  • 2 months since one dose of Johnson & Johnson (J&J)

Public Health’s vaccination sites at Auburn, Kent, Bellevue Eastgate, and Downtown Seattle are using a waitlist for all booster appointments. Register for the waitlist at, or visit the Getting vaccinated in King County page for additional vaccine locations.

Anyone age 5 and over is eligible to get vaccinated.

Latest news

Take these actions to help control the pandemic and support a safe reopening.

The best protection is to get vaccinated. Fully vaccinated people can now do more things safely and are helping reduce COVID-19 in the community.

Whether or not you are vaccinated, please wear masks in indoor public settings like grocery, retail, theaters, and entertainment establishments. See the Masking guidance page for more information.

Masking in high-risk settings helps to protect everyone, including those that currently aren't able to be protected by the vaccine such as children under twelve, and those who are immune suppressed.

Get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who tests positive.

Keep it small and outdoors for activities that involve people who are unvaccinated. The virus spreads easily indoors, so businesses and organizations can help by improving indoor air circulation and filtration.
