Clark County Public Health will open COVID-19 vaccine appointments for the Tower Mall site in central Vancouver at noon today.

The appointments are for anyone eligible in Phase 1a or Phase 1b Tiers 1-2. Those in Phase 1b Tier 2 became eligible today.

The link to schedule appointments will be posted on the Public Health COVID-19 Vaccine webpage and social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter and Nextdoor) at noon today.

Those who fall into Phase 1b Tier 2 are high-risk critical workers in certain congregate settings: agriculture, fishing vessel crews, food processing, grocery stores, corrections, prisons, jails or detention centers, public transit and remaining first responders. People 16 years or older who are pregnant or have a disability that puts them at high risk for severe COVID-19 illness are also now eligible.

Visit www.FindYourPhaseWA.org to confirm eligibility.

Those without internet access or who need help scheduling an appointment can call Public Health at 888-225-4625. Call center representatives can assist with scheduling; language assistance is available.

The Tower Mall vaccination site will operate 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. It offers drive-thru and walk-up options in the Tower Mall parking lot, 5403 E. Mill Plain Blvd., with vehicle entry off Blandford Drive.

Appointments are required. People who visit the site without an appointment will not be vaccinated.

You will receive a confirmation email from Safeway after scheduling an appointment. The Tower Mall site is administering Pfizer vaccine. A second-dose appointment will automatically be scheduled for three weeks later at the same time, day of the week and location. Vaccines are free.

Those with appointments should arrive at the site at their appointment time. Arriving before the scheduled appointment time could lead to traffic backups and longer wait times.

Drivers should enter the site off North Blandford Drive between MacArthur Boulevard and Mill Plain Boulevard and exit onto North Devine Road. Walk-up patients will enter the site off East Mill Plain Boulevard between Blandford Road and Divine Road. Follow the directional signs for COVID-19 vaccine.
