In a piece of very welcome news, the same Washington National Guard team that vaccinated 2,000 islanders in February and March will be returning to the islands at the end of April to help vaccinate an additional 3,100 individuals.

Registration for these clinics will open at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, April 20. Go to https://www.sanjuanco.com/1737/COVID-Vaccine-Info at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, April 20. There will be links clearly marked for each clinic.

Eligibility for these clinics will be open to ALL islanders age 18 or older.

First dose clinic dates will be:

• Monday, April 26 on San Juan Island (second dose on May 24)

• Tuesday, April 27 on Orcas Island (second dose on May 25)

• Wednesday, April 28 on Lopez Island (second dose on May 26)

The vaccine being provided will be the Moderna vaccine and requires second doses. Anyone who signs up must be available four weeks later for their second shot.

Looking forward, these clinics will be the very best opportunity for all eligible (age 18 or older) islanders to receive their COVID vaccine. Please help spread the word.

AGAIN: Registration for these clinics will open at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, April 20.
