We know these are unprecedented times and it is important to have access to timely and relevant information. Listed below are vetted resources.
Following Washington’s COVID-19 vaccine phases, providers in NE Washington are working to vaccinate individuals in Phase 1B tier 1 which includes:
• All people 65 years or older
• All people 50 years or older in multigenerational households (homes where individuals from 2 or more generations reside such as an elder and a grandchild)
Given the number of individuals in this category and current vaccination allocation, this phase is expected to take several weeks to complete.

If you wish to determine your eligibility and be notified when you qualify for the vaccination please visit FindYourPhaseWA.org. If currently eligible you will receive a certificate at the end of the questions which you can print-off or take a screen shot with your phone. You will also be provided with a link of potential provider sites in your county.

If you meet the current eligibility criteria to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, you may submit your information online to be added to the Northeast Tri County Health District’s wait list. As supplies become available you will be contacted to schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine. This may take several weeks, your patience is appreciated. You can find the waitlist here. You can also call NETCHD at 509-684-2262, Option 4 to be added to the waitlist.
