Vaccine eligibility has changed, but FCN is still waiting on vaccine

Jan 19, 2021

Yesterday the state announced an exciting change for many people, opening up vaccine eligibility to include group 1B-Tier 1 -- anyone age 65 or older and those age 50 or older in a multigenerational household -- in additon to frontline health care workers and first reponders (group 1A). Family Care Network is equally excited about this news, however vaccine distribution to FCN clinics has not yet caught up to this announcement.

As an organization, Family Care Network has completed all the necessary steps to enroll in the state distribution plan, and our clinics are prepared to receive and administer vaccine. 

We understand that many of our patients are eager to be vaccinated, and we want to be there for you as the partner in health you have come to depend on. We humbly request your patience and understanding as we navigate this new and challenging process. 

Please check the COVID-19 Info page for the latest updates on vaccine availability at FCN before calling your clinic. This is the page we update first. We will use all the communication channels we have at our disposal to reach out to eligible patients as soon as we receive vaccine.

Local governments are also providing updates on vaccine availability:

  • Whatcom County announced on January 18 that it will remain in Phase 1A due to limited vaccine supply. More info >>
  • Skagit County announced on January 14 that they will offer vaccine to eligible individuals in Phase 1B-Tier 1 starting Tuesday, January 22. More info >>
