Clallam County to offer Pfizer booster shots in Port Angeles

With the recent approval of COVID-19 booster shots by national agencies, officials with Clallam County Emergency Management and Clallam County Health and Human Services are developing plans for a mass vaccination event in Port Angeles similar to those in the spring.

Registration starts at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 1, with applications for reservations posted on the Clallam County website at vaccine.clallam.net/register.

Undersheriff Ron Cameron said the plan is to use the auxiliary gym at the Port Angeles High School, 304 E. Park Ave., to offer booster shots available to those persons who originally received a Pfizer vaccine series. Those eligible must be 65 or older, those of ages 18-64 with an underlying medical condition, and workers in high risk positions.

There will be no Pfizer booster mass vaccination events located in Sequim.

Those who have not had a vaccination shot can sign up for the first of the two-shot Pfizer series.

The first booster vaccination event is being planned for Saturday, Oct. 16, at the Port Angeles High School gym. When all appointments have been filled for Oct. 16, registration will open for Sunday, Oct. 17.

“As Moderna comes on line and approved for boosters, we will work to schedule those folks as well,” Cameron said in a press release.

County officials will be working with North Olympic Healthcare Network to host the booster shot event.

There are some questions to answer on the website application, but Cameron said they are straightforward.

Those with problems signing up or without internet access, they can call the county message center at 360-417-2430 for assistance.
