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 October 9, this partnership has supported the administration of over 44,500 doses to eligible individuals from Kitsap and surrounding counties.
Per the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/stay-up-to-date.html People ages 6 years and older can get a different product for their updated (bivalent) booster than they received for their primary series or last booster. People ages 6 years and older can no longer get an original (monovalent) mRNA (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) booster.
The City of Bainbridge Island, in partnership with the Bainbridge Island Fire Department, Bainbridge Prepares, and the Bainbridge Island Community Pharmacy will hold a pediatric booster clinic for six month-to-five-year-olds on Saturday, July 9 at the Commodore Options Lower Gym.
First dose appointments only are available only for children in this age range. Appointments are open online at our Clinic Registration site.
We will only be offering the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine in the morning, with follow-on 2nd dose and booster clinics for that vaccine in the future.
If there is enough demand for the morning Pfizer appointments and they begin to fill up, we will likely offer an afternoon clinic as well with Moderna appointments. However, there are no guarantees that we will offer one. In lieu of that, if you desire the Moderna vaccine for your child you may try the Kitsap Children's Clinic that is planning a Moderna clinic on Monday, June 27th.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
All Washington residents 5 and older are currently eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination.

Our vaccine clinics are largely supported by City of Bainbridge Island emergency management volunteers. We have activated our Medical Reserve Corps, Community Emergency Response Team, Bainbridge Island Emergency Medical Responders and other general emergency management volunteers to support this effort. We could not offer this resource to our community without their help.
There has been an overwhelming amount of phone calls and emails to all partners involved in the vaccine distribution on Bainbridge Island. We ask that you please do not email or call the City, Bainbridge Island Fire Department, Bainbridge Prepares, Community Pharmacy, Member Plus Family Health or Virginia Mason to check your eligibility. Thank you for your understanding.
