COVID‐19 and Flu Vaccination Clinic in Fall City, Sunday, November 7th, 10 am‐4 pm

Discovery Health MD, the Fall City Fire Department, and the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital will be hosting a vaccination clinic at the Fall City Fire Department, located at 4301‐334th PL SE, Fall City, WA 98024, on Sunday, November 7th from10am‐4pm.  No sign‐up is needed; just show up during the clinic time.  

All COVID‐19 vaccines will be available; Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson (J&J).  We will offer first shots, second shots, booster shots, 3rd shots for those with immunocompromised conditions, and shots for kids five years old and up.  We will also offer flu shots, and yes, you can receive both vaccines on the same day, with no issues.  All COVID‐19 vaccines are FREE!  Flu vaccine costs will be billed directly to your insurance company (no deductible).

First or Second Shot

  • Pfizer; 5 years of age and older – second dose 21 days after the first 
  • Moderna; 18 years of age and older – second dose 28 days after the first
  • J&J; 18 years of age and older – single shot

Booster Shot

For individuals who received a Pfizer‐BioNTech or Moderna COVID‐19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at six months or more after their initial series:

  • 65 years and older
  • Age 18+ who live in long‐term care settings
  • Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions (see list of medical conditions)
  • Age 18+ who work or live in high‐risk settings
    • First responders (e.g., healthcare workers, firefighters, police, congregate care staff)
    • Education staff (e.g., teachers, support staff, daycare workers)
    • Food and agriculture workers
    • Manufacturing workers
    • Corrections workers
    • U.S. Postal Service workers
    • Public transit workers
    • Grocery store workers
    • Others that work in close contact with the public
Vaccine

For the nearly 15 million people who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID‐19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those 18 and older and vaccinated two or more months ago.

There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID‐19 vaccines in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may prefer the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

3rd Shot for Immunocompromised

People with moderately to severely compromised immune systems are especially vulnerable to COVID‐19 and may not build the same level of immunity to the 2‐dose vaccine series compared to people who are not immunocompromised.

CDC recommends that people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID‐19 vaccine at least 28 days after the second dose of Pfizer‐BioNTech COVID‐19 vaccine or Moderna COVID‐19 Vaccine or 60 days after the J&J single shot. 

The CDC defines severely immunocompromised people as having:

  • Been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood
  • Received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott‐Aldrich syndrome)
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection
  • Active treatment with high‐dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response

*To protect your privacy, you will not be asked which immunocompromised condition you have; you will simply be asked to self‐attest that you qualify for the additional shot, per the guidelines.  

What to bring?

COVID‐19 vaccination: your existing CDC card, unless this is your first dose.  

Flu vaccination: a photocopy of the front and back of your insurance card and a copy of your photo id to leave with the registration desk. This will allow us to bill your insurance company for the flu shot.
