COVID-19 Vaccines at Seattle Children’s
Seattle Children’s is providing COVID-19 vaccination services to the general public. We have a limited supply of vaccines and will offer appointments only while supplies last. This means that the availability of appointment slots changes often and we encourage you to check back frequently for appointment availability.
Appointments are only available to those who meet the eligibility requirements set forth by the Washington State Department of Health Phase Finder.
