COVID Updates- Vaccine & Testing
Updated: Jan 19
Good news! We have Moderna vaccine back in stock and will continue offering first, second, third & booster doses. At this time, people 18+ who have had their first 2 doses of either Pfizer or Moderna vaccine are eligible for a booster dose 6 months after their second dose. People 18+ who had the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are eligible for a booster dose 2 months after they received that vaccine.
We have also been working diligently behind the scenes to be able to offer COVID testing at Lakeside. Everything is almost ready and we will begin offering this soon! Washington State Pharmacy Association and WA DOH will be our partners to be able to offer FREE rapid testing for people who can answer yes to any of the following questions:
*Do you have current symptoms of COVID-19?
*Have you had close contact (within 6ft for a period of 15 minutes or more over a 24 hour
period) with someone confirmed or suspected of having COVID-19?
*Have you been told by a healthcare provider or public health official to be tested?
If you do not qualify for free testing, we will also have rapid tests available for a small fee. In the future we are also looking into expanding to travel (PCR) testing, but at this point we want to get the rapid tests started and make sure we get a good workflow before we expand services.
Since we will be adding a service, we decided it will be best to schedule appointments for both vaccine & testing. This is important because we need to ensure that we continue to fill prescriptions efficiently & safely while offering these extra services. A link will be set up soon with scheduling options and we will update this website with information once that is in place.
