COVID-19 Vaccinations

NOTICE: Unity Care NW is feeling the impact of nationwide health care staffing shortages. Due to a lack of sufficient staffing, we will no longer be able to offer COVID-19 vaccines at our Bellingham health centers. However, COVID-19 vaccines will still be available at Unity Care NW’s North Whatcom Health Center in Ferndale.

If transportation is an issue, ask our schedulers about options for helping you get to your appointment.

Call 360-676-6177 for appointments, available Monday – Friday at our health center at 6060 Portal Way in Ferndale.

The COVID-19 vaccine is available free of charge. There is no out-of-pocket cost for COVID-19 vaccines. Currently, patients over age of 5 can receive a vaccine at Unity Care NW.

More information is available here.

The state’s vaccine locator can be used by anyone to find an available vaccination appointment locally.

 

Boosters

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup now recommend everyone 16 and older receive COVID-19 booster doses at the recommended interval. This decision followed the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) decision to expand emergency use authorization (EUA) for booster doses for 16- and 17- year-olds.

Refer to your vaccination card for the type and date of COVID-19 vaccine administration. You can also get personal vaccination records through the Washington State Immunization Information System (WAIIS) at wa.myir.net.

 

Why get vaccinated against COVID-19?

The vaccines are extraordinarily effective at protecting you from hospitalization and death from the virus. Vaccines will help bring this pandemic to an end. By getting vaccinated, you can help reverse the damage to the economy, prevent more illnesses and deaths in America, and eliminate and eradicate COVID-19.
