The following is a press release from Public Health — Seattle & King County:

Vaccine supplies to King County increased substantially this week, vastly expanding the availability of life-saving shots to any eligible person who wants them. Thousands of vaccine appointments are available at King County’s high-volume vaccination sites at Kent accesso ShoWare and the Auburn Outlet Mall, which are open to County residents 16 and older, regardless of their zip code.

The high-volume sites will begin accepting walk-in vaccinations, with no appointment necessary, for as many as 1,000 people per day at each location. These slots will be available Monday – Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m..

In addition, the high-volume sites will be adding more evening and weekend hours. This Sunday May 2, the Auburn site will be open from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Wednesday, May 5, the clinic will run from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m..

“With the increased supply of vaccine, we can now offer vaccine slots with no appointment needed. We know this can make a big difference for people with less flexible work schedules, or for those that may want to come get their vaccine with friends or family,” said Dr. Mark Del Beccaro, Assistant Deputy Chief, COVID Testing and Immunizations, Public Health – Seattle & King County. “With the increased supply, we are now able to open up our Auburn and Kent vaccination sites for anyone in King County.”

Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be offered at the Kent site. At Auburn, people will be able to choose either Pfizer/Moderna or the Johnson & Johnson vaccines. For people ages 16-17, Pfizer is the only authorized vaccine at this time and minors will need a parent present to provide consent.

The COVID-19 vaccine is provided for free, regardless of insurance, citizenship or immigration status. The Kent and Auburn sites are ADA accessible and have ASL and language interpretation on site. You can also get vaccinated at local pharmacies and through many healthcare providers.
