Washington residents - find your phase

  • Visit doh.wa.gov/VaccinationPhasesInfographic.pdf to find out more about Washington's Covid-19 Vaccine Phases.
  • If you want to know what phase you’re in, find your spot in line with Phase Finder. Here’s how it works: Go to www.FindYourPhaseWA.org and fill out the questionnaire. If you’re eligible, you will get a confirmation. Phase Finder will show you locations where you can get the vaccine. Call and schedule your appointment. Take your Eligibility Confirmation (printed or a screenshot) with you. If you aren’t eligible for the vaccine yet, you’ll be able to sign up to get an email or text alert when you are.

SEL is hosting the clinics in cooperation with St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, Valley Medical Center and the Public Health–Idaho North Central Health District.

Be alert for Scams

Be alert for scammers trying to steal your Medicare Number.  Medicare covers the vaccine at no cost to you, so if anyone asks you for your Medicare Number to get early access to the vaccine, you can bet it’s a scam. 

Here’s what to know:

  • You can’t pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine. 
  • You can’t pay to get early access to a vaccine. 
  • Don’t share your personal or financial information if someone calls, texts, or emails you promising access to the vaccine for a fee.
