“We will announce this and any other future mass booster vaccine events as soon as possible.”

Previous story:

With the pending approval of a Moderna booster shot by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) – Clallam County Emergency Management and Clallam County Health and Human Services are planning a mass vaccination event for Saturday, Oct. 23, in Port Angeles, county officials said last week.

Working with the Port Angeles School District, staff will utilize the auxiliary gym at the Port Angeles High School, 304 E. Park Ave., with the Jamestown S’Klallam Health Clinic providing clinical support in administering the vaccine booster for this event; there will be no Moderna booster mass vaccination event located in Sequim.

Those eligible for the booster shots are individuals who have already received the two-shot Moderna vaccination and are either 65 years old or older, or are 18-64 with an underlying medical condition and workers whose occupation puts them at a higher risk.

If the Moderna booster vaccine is not approved by the FDA and CDC by Oct. 23, county officials said, the event will be canceled, a notice will be publicized, and the appointments deleted.

Individuals can get Moderna booster shots at local pharmacies and through personal health care providers.

Pre-registration for the Moderna booster vaccine event is posted on the Clallam County website or at vaccine.clallam.net/register. Those needing assistance in securing an appointment online are urged to contact the county Emergency Management department message center at 360-417-2430.
