COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The City of Bainbridge Island, in partnership with the Bainbridge Island Fire Department and Bainbridge Prepares, is coordinating with Bainbridge Island Community Pharmacy on COVID-19 vaccine distribution. As of August 29, this partnership has supported the administration of over 27,650 doses to eligible individuals from Kitsap and surrounding counties.  

***September 22 Update***

Our SIXTH annual Day of Preparedness will be a flu and COVID immunization clinic on Saturday, September 25, 2021.

In partnership with the Bainbridge Island Fire Department, Bainbridge Prepares, and the Bainbridge Island Community Pharmacy, we will provide FREE flu vaccinations (free with insurance and subsidized by our sponsors for individuals without insurance) on Saturday at the Commodore High School gymnasium. In addition, we will also provide free COVID-19 vaccines – 1st, 2nd, and 3rd* doses of all three approved vaccines: Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty), and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen).

*3rd doses of mRNA (Moderna and Pfizer) vaccines are available ONLY to individuals who meet the CDC’s definition of immunocompromised.

At this time, booster doses are not fully approved for any type of vaccine (Moderna, Pfizer, or Johnson & Johnson). We are waiting for formal approval from the FDA, CDC, and State Department of Health before scheduling booster doses. We anticipate approval in the next week and are planning for a booster clinic on October 2. Additional information will be shared at a later time. 

COVID-19 and flu immunization appointments are avaialble online at our Clinic Registration site. 

***September 2 Update***

At this time, individuals who meet the CDC and State definition of immunocompromised are the only individuals eligible for a third dose of the COVID vaccine. We do not currently have any vaccine clinics scheduled for immunocompromised people or any other groups. 

We continue to monitor State and Federal guidance on recommendations for booster doses for the general public and we anticipate holding booster clinics beginning in late September. The FDA, CDC, and Washington State need to first approve any guidance related to booster doses and we will plan our clinics accordingly. 

Additional information on booster doses is available here: COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shot | CDC

Lose Your CDC Card?

If you have lost your CDC COVID vaccination card the best way to get a copy of your immunization record is to visit https://wa.myir.net/ or email covid.vaccine@doh.wa.gov to obtain proof of vaccination. Do not request a replacement card from the vaccine provider. The federal government did not provide extra CDC cards and vaccine providers are not able to provide a duplicate.

If you are unable to locate your vaccine record through https://wa.myir.net/ or get assistance through the Department of Health, check with your primary care provider. They have access to your immunization record and may be able to help. The state has also released a document with additional information on accepted proof of vaccinations
