Clark County Fairgrounds vaccination site

The Washington State Department of Health is operating a vaccination site at the Clark County Fairgrounds. The site opened Tuesday, Jan. 26 and is operating Tuesday through Saturday each week. Appointments are required.

The fairgrounds site administers Pfizer vaccine. You are encouraged to make an appointment online using Safeway’s registration system. If you need assistance, call the state's COVID-19 hotline at 800.525.0127, then press #. Language assistance is available.

If you received your first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at the fairgrounds, you should receive a follow-up email/text message to schedule your second dose. That follow-up notification should come the day after you receive your first dose. 

Appointments are best, but if you experience problems with the scheduling system or do not receive the notification to schedule your second-dose appointment, you will still be able to get your second dose at the fairgrounds. Take your original confirmation email from Albertsons/Safeway or your vaccine record card to the fairgrounds on the date you are due for your second dose, and you will get vaccinated.

Clark County Public Health does not have access to the scheduling system and cannot schedule or confirm appointments.
