Sequim teachers, childcare staff now eligible for vaccines

Washington state teachers and childcare workers are now among those who are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine.

Gov. Jay Inslee announced the expansion of vaccination guidelines on March 2, making the more than 300 Sequim School District staffers along with dozens of other employees who take care of children eligible.

Officials with the Jamestown Family Health Clinic, the entity organizing the drive-through vaccination clinics in Sequim, announced today, March 3, that teachers and other school and childcare staff may register for any Dose 1 COVID vaccination drive-through clinic in Sequim, regardless of age.

A new online registration question will ask those signing up if they work for a school, a school district or a childcare center, clinic organizers said.

A new, 1,000 slot Dose 1 vaccination day has been added to the Jamestown Family Health Clinic drive-through COVID-19 vaccines at Carrie Blake Community Park for Saturday, March 13. Check in is at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave.

Because of limited vaccine supply, no spouses/partners will be allowed, and all school staff must bring employee identification with them.

Register online at vaccine.clallam.net/register. Once online registration is complete, a ticket with date and time should be printed and brought to the clinic.

The Dose 1 COVID vaccination clinics will continue to register those that are 65 or older. A spouse or domestic partner in the car may be younger and can be registered at the same time. In addition, those 50-and-older and living in a multi-generational household may also register for a vaccine.

Those who do not have internet access can get registered by calling 360-681-3447. Volunteers at the call center will use an online system to make appointments, and that registration information will be on file at the check-in booth.

Note: Those who need Dose 2 do not need to make an appointment, but simply check-in on the date and time given after the first dose.
