Spokane, Wash. - The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) and CHAS Health confirmed today that 8,000 doses of Moderna vaccine are being allocated to the Spokane Arena mass vaccination site, and that appointments scheduled for first and second doses Feb. 23-27, will continue as planned.

“Weather delays across the county pushed vaccine deliveries by a week. We are thrilled to be picking up where we left off and would like to thank the community for their patience as we’ve rescheduled appointments these past few days,” said Jennifer Dixon, site coordinator for the mass vaccination site at the Spokane Arena.

Patients who need to reschedule second doses will be called directly if they were previously scheduled for Feb. 21-22 appointments. Patients should be assured that they still have an appointment and will not lose their opportunity to get their second vaccine dose. They will not be asked for personal health information and will only be asked to verify identity with date of birth and confirm contact information in order to send the updated appointment time to the patient.

When DOH calls to reschedule appointments, they will ask the following questions:

  • Date of birth to confirm identify
  • Email address to send updated appointment information
  • They will not ask for financial or other personal identifiable information

If a patient feels uncomfortable, or wants to verify the caller is “real," they should call the DOH COVID-19 hotline at 1-800-525-0127 and press # to talk to a representative. DOH will direct the patient to the correct phone number to confirm their rescheduled appointment.

No new appointments will be open for scheduling this week.
