Final day to get COVID-19 vaccine at Cowlitz County Event Center is Sunday, May 16

LONGVIEW, Washington — Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will be offered at the Cowlitz County Event Center, 1900 7th Ave, Longview, for the last time this Sunday, May 16.

Second doses will be prioritized for the more than 400 people who received their first dose at the site on April 25. They were given a second-dose appointment for May 16 and should return at the same time as their first-dose appointment.

Between 10-11:30am and 1-4:30pm, people age 16 or older who do not have an appointment can show up to receive their first or second dose of the Pfizer vaccine while supply lasts. At least 700 doses will be available for people without an appointment.

Everyone who gets their second dose at the Cowlitz County Event Center must provide their COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, which states their first dose date and vaccine type. 
Per CDC guidelines, second doses will not be provided sooner than 21 days apart.

Cowlitz County Health and Human Services will close the site after this weekend to prioritize setting up mobile vaccination clinics at other locations in the county.

That means people who get their first dose at the Cowlitz County Event Center this Sunday will need to schedule their second-dose appointment at another location. They will be provided with instructions at their appointment and can also call (360) 414-5599 for assistance.

Everyone who gets vaccinated at the site must complete a consent form prior to their first- and second-dose appointment. The form can be downloaded from Cowlitz County Health and Human Services’ vaccine webpage or completed at the site.

People can arrive to the site by car or on foot. Drivers must go through the drive-thru line located at the 3rd Avenue entrance. Walkers must enter through the 7th Avenue entrance.

Vaccination is free of charge for everyone. ID and health insurance are not required. People who are getting vaccinated do not need to provide a social security number, or other documents with their immigration status, to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

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.
