State’s Phase Finder Tool No Longer Required as of March 31
Phase Finder, the state’s online vaccine eligibility tool, will no longer be required to verify COVID-19 vaccine eligibility beginning Wednesday, March 31st. All vaccine providers have been provided guidance around this change and should no longer be requiring proof of eligibility at vaccine appointments.
Instead of using this tool to determine your eligibility, please check WA Department of Health’s prioritization guidance webpage to see when they are eligible to get vaccinated: https://www.doh.wa.gov/Emergencies/COVID19/VaccineInformation/AllocationandPrioritization.
Those who are eligible can then use the new online Vaccine Locator to find an appointment. After March 30th, those who visit the Phase Finder site will be directed to the Vaccine Locator instead. Vaccine Locator is available in 30 languages and will add seven more languages by the end of April. Those who have further questions or need help making an appointment can call the state’s COVID-19 information hotline at 1-800-525-0127, then press #. Language assistance is available. You can also call Skagit County’s Vaccine Hotline at (360) 416-1500.
While Phase Finder will no longer be active, the state’s vaccine phases are staying the same. The state remains in Phase 1B, Tier 2, and on March 31st, vaccine eligibility opens to people in Phase 1B, Tiers 3 and 4.
The newly added Tiers include the following groups:
