SEATTLE —      Finding a Covid vaccine has proven to be tough, especially for those faced with accessibility issues. Crisis Connections has teamed up with the WA Department of Health to operate a hotline to help people find and schedule their vaccine appointments while you wait on the phone for confirmation.

For Covid Vaccine information OR to schedule an appointment :1-800-525-0127   Hours: 6 a.m. to 10 p.m, seven days a week

Rigert, Senior Director of Development and Community Relations for Crisis Connections says the WA 211 network has been answering the COVID-19 Information Hotline since March of 2020.  Since the beginning of January 2021, the information line has been inundated with phone calls around vaccine eligibility and scheduling appointments. Individuals who do not have access to a computer, internet access, and printer were not able to complete the eligibility intake form and not able to print out the confirmation number to take to the vaccine sites.

The COVID-19 Information hotline is now able to schedule appointments for most vaccine sites and can help individuals who have barriers to access to help answer questions and get them set up for a vaccine appointment if there are appointments available across the state.

If you are having difficulty knowing if you are eligible to get the vaccine and/or need assistance in scheduling a vaccine and/or questions around COVID-19 please call the COVID-19 Information line at 1-800-525-0127.

Crisis Connections is also partnering with Washington Listens. Washington Listens is a free and confidential support line and outreach program for Washington State residents. The service provides non-clinical support and resources to people experiencing elevated stress due to COVID-19.
