Kaiser Permanente Washington has opened a COVID-19 vaccination site at the organization’s Federal Way Medical Center.
The site, opened on April 24, is the latest in the King County Vaccination Partnership Network, a network of vaccination sites supported by public, private, and community partnerships. The new clinic will serve nearly 1,000 visitors each day on weekends, depending on vaccine supply.
The site is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays at 301 South 320th Street in Federal Way.
Throughout the pandemic, communities in south King County and communities of color have been disproportionately impacted by the virus.
Over the past several months, King County has been working to increase vaccine accessibility in these communities, starting with the high-volume sites in Auburn and Kent, and now this new site in Federal Way.
“Our King County Vaccination Partnership Network has been a part of our all-hands-on-deck vaccination effort in collaboration with health care providers, businesses, community groups, and local cities,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. “Thanks to our strong partnership with Kaiser Permanente, this Federal Way vaccine site further expands our ability to make vaccination as convenient as possible, no matter where you live in King County.”
Additional Kaiser Permanente operations in the King County Vaccination Partnership Network include its Administration campus in Renton, Kaiser Permanente Capitol Hill Medical Center, and Bellevue Medical Center.
The Kaiser Permanente Federal Way Medical Center site offers ADA accessibility and wheelchair access, private vaccinations in a clinic setting to address modesty needs and is easily accessible via King County Metro buses (routes 181 and 187) and Metro Access.
Interpretation services are available on-site by phone and Video Relay Interpretation (VRI) and can be provided in-person by arrangement.
Registration is open to all residents 16 years or older regardless of insurance or immigration status and appointments are required. Patients do not need to be a Kaiser Permanente member to schedule a vaccine.
