COVID-19 Vaccine Information for Dental Offices | Washington State Dental Association (WSDA)
COVID-19 Vaccine Updates

Phase 1A, Tier 2 of Washington state's COVID-19 Vaccine Allocation Guidance allows for the vaccination of all workers in health care settings. All dental office employees are included in Phase 1A, Tier 2, and are immediately eligible for a vaccine.

See current phase information on the Department of Health vaccine web page.

Finding a Vaccine Provider

DOH Vaccine Location List

Individuals eligible in Phase 1A can find a list of vaccine locations compiled by DOH here. All dental office employees are included in Phase 1A, Tier 2, and are immediately eligible for a vaccine. This list contains the most current information available from DOH at the time.

WSDA recommends that in addition to any noted requirements from a vaccine provider, individuals receive a confirmation of 1A eligibility through DOH's Find Your Phase tool or secure a vaccine voucher letter from their employer prior to arriving at their appointment.

DOH Phase Finder Tool

To receive a confirmation of Phase 1A status and find a list of currently available vaccination locations by county, click here.

DOH Phase Finder Tool

Once you complete the tool's screening questions, the confirmation page will include a link to a website that lists providers that are vaccinating people outside of their system/facility with contact information to schedule an appointment. 

This is a rapidly evolving situation, and this tool includes the most current information available at this time. DOH will continue to work with providers to add them to this list.

Vaccine Voucher Letter

In addition to the Find Your Phase tool, DOH has released a document detailing how employers can provide a voucher letter to identify workers who qualify for the vaccine in Phase 1A but whose employers aren’t offering the vaccine directly.

Please note: To WSDA’s knowledge, the voucher letter seems to be another option in addition to using the confirmation provided through DOH’s Find Your Phase tool. The list of vaccine providers offered by DOH is the same for both the Find Your Phase tool and voucher letter options.
