Phase Finder, the state’s online vaccine eligibility tool, is no longer required to verify COVID-19 vaccine eligibility. Further, on March 31, Gov. Jay Inslee announced that as of Thursday, April 15, all Washingtonians over the age of 16 will be eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.
People who want a vaccine should check the Washington State Department of Health’s (DOH) eligibility summary on the DOH webpage to find out if they are eligible to get vaccinated. Those who are eligible can then use Vaccine Locator to find an appointment. Those who visit the Phase Finder site will be directed to Vaccine Locator. The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) has informed vaccine providers of this change. DOH has asked that providers no longer require Phase Finder to schedule an appointment or ask for it when patients arrive for their appointment.
Vaccine Locator is available in 30 languages and will add seven more languages by the end of April. Those who have further questions or need help making an appointment can call the state’s COVID-19 information hotline at 1-800-525-0127, then press #. Language assistance is available.
The state remains in Phase 1B2, and on March 31, vaccine eligibility opened to people in Phase 1B tiers 3 and 4. We remain in this phase until Thursday, April 15, when vaccine eligibility expands to all Washingtonians over the age of 16.
