Vaccine doses this week in BI as demand decreases

Decreased demand for vaccine appointments

The Bainbridge Island Community Pharmacy is receiving first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine this week, eligible to people age 16 and older.

According to the city of Bainbridge Island, they are seeing a decreased demand for vaccine appointments, and this upcoming weekend could be one of their last first-dose clinics if they are unable to fill available appointments. Data from the Kitsap Public Health District shows over 61 percent of eligible BI residents have received at least their first dose of the vaccine.

The Pfizer first-dose vaccine appointments will be made available at the Commodore Options gym April 24 and April 25. Sign up online at covidbi.timetap.com. Second-dose appointments are already booked for this weekend.

Patients ages 16 and 17 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian; if unavailable the teen must have a screening form signed by their parent or guardian and a phone number where they can be reached.

With the appointment standby list out of date and in an effort to save time and resources, information on end-of-day extra doses will be posted in the afternoon on Saturdays and Sundays (clinic days) on the BICP Facebook page.

The city, in partnership with the BI Fire Department and Bainbridge Prepares, is coordinating with BICP on COVID-19 vaccine distribution. As of April 19, the partnership has supported the administration of over 20,000 doses to people from Kitsap and surrounding counties.

Additionally, Member Plus Family Health had first-dose Moderna vaccines available April 22 and 29. Register online at vaccinempfh.timetap.com.
