The COVID-19 vaccination site at Tower Mall will have more than 4,000 first-dose appointments available in the coming week. The site operates Friday, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, and will have about 1,000 first-dose appointments available for each of those days.
For now, only those currently eligible to be vaccinated – those in Phase 1a or Phase 1b Tiers 1-4 – can schedule appointments. When eligibility changes on Thursday, anyone who is 16 years or older can schedule an appointment at the Tower Mall site. Once eligible, minors can be vaccinated at the Tower Mall site if their consent form is signed by a parent or guardian.
To schedule an appointment, visit the Safeway/Albertsons vaccine website. The scheduling link is also available on the Public Health COVID-19 Vaccine webpage.
Those who do not have internet access or need help scheduling an appointment can call Public Health at 888.225.4625. Call center representatives can assist with scheduling, and language assistance is available.
The Tower Mall site is administering Pfizer vaccine. Second-dose appointments will automatically be scheduled for three weeks later at the same time, day of the week and location. Those scheduling appointments are asked to ensure the time and day of week they select will work for their first- and second-dose appointments. Vaccines are free.
The vaccination site operates 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and offers drive-thru and walk-up options in the Tower Mall parking lot, 5403 E. Mill Plain Blvd. Those with appointments should arrive at the site at their appointment time. Arriving before the scheduled appointment time could lead to traffic backups and longer wait times.
Drivers should enter the site off North Blandford Drive between MacArthur Boulevard and Mill Plain Boulevard and exit onto North Devine Road. Walk-up patients will enter the site off East Mill Plain Boulevard between Blandford Road and North Divine Road. Follow the directional signs for COVID-19 vaccine.
The Tower Mall vaccination site is a collaboration between Clark County Public Health, the city of Vancouver and Safeway. The site opened on March 5 and has administered about 20,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
