Due to the widespread availability of vaccine providers on the island and the sharp decrease in demand at WhidbeyHealth for coronavirus vaccination appointments, WhidbeyHealth will cease operating its public vaccine clinic on June 30, 2021.
We are proud that our team of WhidbeyHealth staff and volunteers came together as the first public vaccination provider on Whidbey Island.
As of today, we have delivered over 17,000 injections at no cost to the patient or their insurance carriers. We chose to do this as an important step in fighting for the lives of our community.
We could not have mounted this effort without the support of many volunteer providers who generously assisted in giving injections, staffing the reception desk, escorting patients through the process, operating the waiting area, and helping with the tremendous paperwork burden. From everyone at WhidbeyHealth, we can only say: Thank you!
WhidbeyHealth also recognizes the enormous organizing support from Island County Public Health, Island County Emergency Management, our Fire Service, and many other partners. Our collaboration throughout this pandemic has proven that we are truly #WhidbeyStrong.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all our staff, providers, volunteers, and community members who came together to make our community safer. We can, and will, make it through this together.
Although we have made significant strides in the fight against the pandemic is not behind us yet. We encourage everyone to mask up where required, maintain distance, hand hygiene, and most important: get vaccinated.
