Coronavirus Skagit

Skagit County Public Health is expecting its largest COVID-19 vaccine allotment yet next week.

County spokesperson Laura Han said two trays of the Pfizer vaccine — about 1,950 doses — should be on the way to the vaccination clinic at the county fairgrounds.

Appointments will open at 9 a.m. Saturday, at skagitcounty.com/covidvaccine. Those who have experienced difficulty registering online can call Public Health’s vaccine hotline at 360-416-1500.

“It’s not just us either,” she said. “Pretty much all providers are getting a large shipment.”

In addition to these first doses, Han said the county is continuing to receive all the second doses it requests.
