[ARCHIVED] Vaccination appointments at Cowlitz County Event Center open this week

LONGVIEW, Washington — Cowlitz County Health and Human Services will once again open first-
dose COVID-19 vaccination appointments at the Cowlitz County Event Center (1900 7th Ave Longview). Starting at noon on Wednesday, April 7, people eligible in Phase 1A or 1B (Tiers 1-4) can schedule
 an appointment online.

 


Visit www.co.cowlitz.wa.us/CovidVaccine at noon on Wednesday,
April 7 to schedule an appointment at the Cowlitz County Event Center.
Vaccination appointments are available for Sunday, April 11 only.
 


This Sunday, April 11, 1,200 first doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine will be administered at the Cowlitz County Event Center. So far, 3,304 people have received their first and second doses of the two-dose Pfizer vaccine at the site. More first-dose appointments are expected to open up later
this month once vaccine allocations are confirmed.

 Vaccination is by appointment only.
Appointments must be made in advance. When scheduling an appointment online, make sure the time and day of week you select works for your first- and second-dose appointments. Second-dose appointments are scheduled for the same time, day of week and location as first-dose appointments exactly three weeks later.

You can arrive to the vaccination site by car or on foot no more than 10 minutes prior to your appointment time. Drivers must go through the drive-thru line located at the 3rd Avenue entrance
and walkers must enter through the 7th Avenue entrance. Please dress in clothing that allows vaccinators to easily access your upper arm.

Prior to getting vaccinated, you may be asked to provide a copy of the email or text message confirmation you received after scheduling your appointment, identification to ensure registration information is accurate and proof of health insurance. An immunization consent form must be completed prior to first- and second-dose appointments.
The immunization consent form can be downloaded from the online appointment scheduler or from Cowlitz County Health and Human Services’ vaccine webpage. You can also complete the consent form at the Cowlitz County Event Center on the day of your appointment.

Vaccination is free of charge for everyone whether or not they have health insurance.

 

Cowlitz County Health and Human Services is coordinating the vaccination site with Safeway, an enrolled vaccine provider. Added logistical support comes from other Cowlitz County departments
and local partners as well as an incident management team.
