The Community Vaccination Center located at Bellingham Technical College now welcomes walk-ins. Appointments are still encouraged but no longer required for vaccination at any of the CVC’s three weekly clinics.
Appointments are still recommended. People who choose walk-in appointments will be vaccinated on a first-come, first-served basis, but people with appointments are guaranteed vaccination at their scheduled appointment times.
“Now that supply has caught up with demand, we’re able to accommodate people who show up without an appointment,” said CVC Supervisor Debra Taylor. “So if you’re getting off work on a Tuesday or Thursday or out running errands on a Saturday with 20 minutes to spare and haven’t yet gotten vaccinated, stop on by! We’d be happy to serve you.”
The CVC currently hosts three weekly clinics, with evening hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays and daytime hours on Saturdays. Appointments are currently available for all clinics this week during the following hours:
- Tuesday, May 11: 4 p.m. – 6 p.m.
- Thursday, May 13: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, May 15: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Appointments can be made at PrepMod.doh.wa.gov. People who need language assistance or have technology barriers can call 360-778-6075 to schedule an appointment. The phone line operates Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Many more local COVID-19 vaccine providers are also taking walk-ins. As of Monday, May 10, those providers include:
- Haggen on 12th Street (if scheduled vaccine appointments are not full)
- Haggen in Ferndale (if extra doses are available)
- Haggen on Meridian
- Haggen on Woburn
- PeaceHealth Community Vaccination Center
- Safeway in Bellingham (if extra doses are available)
- Walgreens (call first to check availability)
