Reopening Vaccine First-Dose Appointments to Eligible 1A and 1B1 Employees

With a third COVID-19 vaccine now approved and vaccine supply increasing nationwide over the next few months, we are pleased to begin scheduling first-dose vaccinations for employees who meet the Washington State Department of Health eligibility criteria. Eligible employees are those in Phase 1A or 1B tier 1. This includes healthcare workers at high risk for COVID-19 infection, first responders, people who live or work in long-term care facilities, anyone 65 and older, people 50 and older who also live in a multigenerational household, and educators, staff and child care workers in pre-K, K-12 or daycare settings.

If you are eligible for COVID-19 vaccination, please visit the UW Medicine employee COVID-19 vaccine site to schedule your appointment.

Please note demand for the COVID-19 vaccine remains high and doses are still limited. We will add more appointment slots at UW Medicine vaccination clinics as supply allows. Employees may also stay on our “no waste” stand-by list for a chance to be vaccinated sooner. To register for the stand-by list, please complete the form at uwmedicine.org/c19-vaccine-wastelist.

Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation as we work to end this pandemic.

Sincerely,

UW Medicine Vaccine Scheduling Team
