We have important information to share with you about the distribution of the 2 safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines that have been approved. We are excited to have these vaccines available, and we know that many of you are interested in receiving it. Because the vaccines are still in very short supply, Kaiser Permanente is following the guidelines for distribution from federal and state health departments, and it could take several weeks to schedule an appointment for the vaccine if you are eligible.
Current Phase 1: Tiers A1, A2, and B1 vaccine distribution
The groups listed below are the first individuals eligible to receive the vaccine. People in Tiers A1 and A2 have been eligible since late December. On January 18, Washington state Governor Jay Inslee announced that people in Tier B1 are also eligible and expanded this tier to include people 65 and over.
Tiers A1 and A2
- Workers in health care setting
- First responders
- Workers and residents in long-term care facilities
- People 65 and older
- People 50 years and older in a multigenerational household (defined as a home where individuals from 2 or more generations reside, such as an elder and a grandchild. This does not include a parent or guardian caring for a child or teen.)
You must have an appointment. Appointments are being scheduled for the vaccine we have available. These appointments are for people in Phase 1, Tier A1, A2, and B1. If you believe you are in one of these groups, go to kp.org/wa/e-visit and complete an e-visit.
If the e-visit determines that you are eligible for the vaccine, you will be directed to a website to make an appointment. You'll be able to make an appointment to receive the first dose of the vaccine and the second dose (2 doses are needed) that must be given a few weeks later. If you believe you are in Phase 1, Tier A1, A2, or B1 and don't have computer access, please call 1‑800‑352‑3610 for assistance.
COVID-19 vaccinations will be given at select Kaiser Permanente sites. You will need to return to the same site for the second dose of the vaccine.
Please note that while we have added many appointment times, an appointment may not be immediately available. It will take several weeks before we'll have enough vaccine on hand to vaccinate everyone who is now eligible. We ask for your patience as we all work toward the same goal: getting this critical vaccine to everyone who is eligible.
Everyone 65 and over immediately eligible for coronavirus vaccination under newly announced guidelines

Following this approval, the Seattle Fire Department (SFD) will quickly launch two mobile vaccination teams to vaccinate nearly 1,000 residents and staff at Adult Family Homes (AFHs) within the next two weeks.
