Limited swine flu vaccines available at local pharmacies

Public Health – Seattle & King County has made limited amounts of H1N1 flu vaccine available at selected pharmacies in King County.  Check out the complete list of pharmacies with vaccine here.
Looking at the list, it appears the only pharmacy in the Greenwood/Ballard area is Bob Johnson’s Pharmacy at 1407 NW 85th St., 206-782-5822. Both the shot and nasal spray are available there. Walk-in appointments for ages 3 and older are available Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., starting Nov. 9.
People eligible to receive vaccine through pharmacies include:

  • Pregnant women
  • People who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age
  • People between the ages of 6 months and 24 years old
  • People between 25 through 64 years of age with chronic health conditions or weakened immune systems
  • Healthcare and emergency workers with direct patient contact

Pharmacies may charge a fee for administering the vaccine, typically between $12 and $22 (not to exceed $22). This fee is covered by most health insurance. People should bring their health insurance information to the pharmacy, and they may need to submit a receipt to their insurance company for reimbursement.
