Upcoming pop-up vaccine clinics, March 25

A federal program that reimburses providers for vaccinating uninsured people is ending April 5. However, the health department's pop-up clinics are funded through a different program and will be able to vaccinate people without insurance at no cost through June 30, 2022.

Where to get vaccinated. Adolescents, teens and adults can get vaccinated for COVID-19 at most places you’d go for a flu vaccine, like grocery stores, pharmacies and health care clinics. Some of these providers also vaccinate 5- to 11-year-olds. There are also a number of pop-up clinics offering COVID-19 vaccines, some of which offer vaccines to 5- to 11-year-olds. 

A more complete list of vaccine providers in Whatcom County can be found at VaccineLocator.doh.wa.gov.
