State secretary of health at ICHS to discuss COVID-19 vaccine

Dr. Umair A. Shah, Washington state secretary of health, visits ICHS

On Jan. 12, as COVID-19 vaccine efforts ramp up in Washington state and across the nation, leaders from International Community Health Services (ICHS) welcomed Dr. Umair A. Shah, Washington state secretary of health, to the health center’s International District Clinic.

The meeting opened opportunities for ICHS to raise issues as staff and providers look ahead to the next phases of Washington state’s vaccine rollout, which will continue to target those at highest risk. ICHS received the first doses of the Moderna vaccine on Dec. 23, vaccinating front line health workers and residents in its senior congregate care facility, ICHS Legacy House.

“Our successful end to the pandemic is critically tied to the efficient and equitable distribution of the vaccine,” said Teresita Batayola, ICHS CEO, “As a community health center, ICHS will be key in helping those most at risk overcome language, culture, income and vaccine misinformation barriers that could prevent them from getting vaccinated. We are honored to welcome Dr. Shah to our International District Clinic. Today’s meeting was a productive step in coordinating public, private and community efforts to make sure we inform and reach everyone.”

The secretary released a statement, “Dr. Shah applauds the important work ICHS has done to ensure people in King County’s diverse communities (and beyond) have access to quality, affordable health care, including COVID-19 testing, during the pandemic. ICHS contributions will help ensure an equitable, culturally responsive, and efficient distribution of Washington state’s supply of COVID-19 vaccine so that no one – no matter where they live, their racial or ethnic background, their income, language, or immigration or insurance status – is left behind.”

Make an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine

UPDATED on 1/20: Vaccine appointments are currently available to ICHS patients and community members who qualify for Phase 1B/Tier 1 through the DOH Phase Finder tool. Tier 1 includes all people 65 years and older and people 50 years and older who live in multigenerational households. This is in addition to those eligible during Phase 1A, which includes health care workers at high risk for COVID-19 infection, first responders, people who live or work in long-term care facilities, and all other workers in health settings who are at risk of COVID-19.

Please Follow These steps carefully

  1. Get prescreened, click here. Eligible individuals who are qualified for the current phase interested in receiving the vaccine must first answer questions through the DOH Phase Finder tool, a prescreening survey that identifies if you are eligible and assigns priority.
  2. Make an appointment at one of our clinics below. Appointments are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please check back frequently.
  3. When you arrive, please bring your message from the Department of Health, either digitally or as a printout, that verifies your eligibility. It is required to receive the vaccine.

what to expect

  • You will be given vaccine safety information.
  • We will observe you for 15 minutes.
  • You will schedule your second dose, for 28 days later at the same location.

Eventually, everyone can receive the vaccine

We know our state’s supply of vaccine will be far fewer than the total numbers of people deemed eligible by the Department of Health.

An organized and equitable distribution of a vaccine is the first step to getting the pandemic under control. ICHS is diligently working with public health and community partners to ensure as soon as more vaccine becomes available, we get as many doses as possible to as many people as possible; especially to our patients and community members facing the greatest barriers to health care. We can only slow the spread of the virus when all people – regardless of income, immigration or insurance status – are protected from catching it.

Eventually, everyone who wants a vaccine will have an opportunity to get one. Right now, it’s critical to continue with safety precautions. Wear a mask, limit travel and activities outside the home, and continue social distancing.

ICHS receives first delivery of COVID-19 vaccines

ICHS staff COVID19 vaccinations

On Dec. 23, International Community Health Services (ICHS) was among the first of the area’s health centers to receive doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and begin vaccinating frontline health workers.

Reactions were jubilant, as staff saw the end of a challenging year and the nation’s largest health crisis, come into sight.

“The shot has no pain at all for me,” said Ping Yang, acupuncturist, first to be delivered the vaccine at the International District Clinic. “At last I don’t have to worry, because I’m seeing patients every time and no one knows who is carrying what. The vaccine is good for me, my family, my community and hopefully I can visit my parents, they are 97 years old.

Community members can be confident that the vaccine is safe and that it works, said Dr. Asqual Getaneh, ICHS chief medical officer. “I enthusiastically rolled up my sleeve to be vaccinated and urge everyone to do the same. It is the best way to look out for yourself, your family and your community. I will now be able to spend Christmas with my 89-year-old father with additional protection and without great anxiety. This is how we stop people from dying and return to normal life.”

The vials of the Moderna vaccine are a milestone in ending the pandemic. Initial supplies will be limited and given to groups at highest risk, such as health care workers and people in long-term care facilities, said Getaneh. The next priority groups will be essential workers with higher risk of exposure, adults with underlying health conditions and adults 65 years and older. Eventually there will be enough for everyone who wants a vaccination. She urged patience, as well as offered a reminder there will still be a need to wear a mask, maintain distancing and practice good hygiene for some time.

In February 2020, ICHS was the first community health center in the nation to see a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. As a result, ICHS has helped set best practices guiding the response of the nation’s nearly 1,400 federally qualified health centers, which collectively serve 30 million people, most of them low income, immigrants and refugees.

Registrants choose their own course and personal day to race, while encouraging safely physically distancing during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Race proceeds fund patient health care access

All race proceeds will fund patient health services for families who could not otherwise afford them.

“Its been a tough year, and ICHS has been on the frontlines caring for patients and our communities.” says Ron Chew, ICHS Foundation Director, “This event is a way for us all to celebrate a new, better year ahead and support our patients.”

The event is hosted by the ICHS Foundation, a separate non-profit that fundraises year round to support ICHS’s patients with free or low-cost health services. The COVID-19 pandemic and disruptions to the health insurance coverage for many Washington residents highlights the importance of providing affordable health care access to anyone who needs it.

Registration is now open

The Lunar New Year Virtual 5k is open to all ages. Participants run or walk the course of their choice during the first week of the Lunar New Year (Feb. 12-18, 2021). Registration is $35 with an early bird discounted price of $30 ending Jan. 12, 2021. Attendees under 14 or 65 and older can participate for free.

COVID-19: Vaccine update

UPDATED on 1/20: We are currently in Phase 1B/Tier 1 of Washington state’s vaccine rollout. Tier 1 includes all people 65 years and older and people 50 years and older who live in multigenerational households. This is in addition to those eligible during Phase 1A, which includes health care workers at high risk for COVID-19 infection, first responders, people who live or work in long-term care facilities, and all other workers in health settings who are at risk of COVID-19.

Thank you for your interest in the COVID-19 vaccine. We are currently offering vaccine appointments to ICHS patients and community members who qualify through the DOH Phase Finder tool.

  1. Eligible ICHS patients. Your care team will contact you by phone to schedule an appointment at one of our COVID-19 vaccination events. Please do not contact our call center about scheduling.
  2. Eligible patients and community members. A limited number of appointments are open on a first-come, first-served basis through our online appointment page here. We suggest you check back frequently.

We each have a responsibility to ensure that those around us are protected and we help reduce COVID-19 transmission by being vaccinated. However, it’s important to remember that even after vaccination you must continue to wear a mask around others, stay at least 6 feet away, avoid crowds and wash your hands often. We must use every tool to prevent infection until enough people have immunity to the virus to prevent its spread. This is the only way we can halt the pandemic and ensure the health of our family members, friends and neighbors.

How vaccines are prioritized

Vaccinations are happening in phases based on Washington state Department of Health guidelines. Check your vaccine eligibility through the DOH Phase Finder tool here.

Our state’s timeline

The DOH has released a timeline that will help you understand which priority group you belong to and when it will be your turn to get the vaccine. This timeline is just an estimate and could change based on state and federal vaccine supplies. See the estimated timeline.


Not getting a vaccination is more than an individual choice, it has a much wider impact on everyone’s health and wellbeing. It will make it harder to achieve herd immunity, a level of immunity that will prevent the virus from circulating in the community, and protect us all. Without immunization, you place yourself at greater risk of severe illness or long-term health issues from COVID-19. When you get the vaccine, you also help protect people in high-risk groups that might not be able to get vaccinated themselves.

The COVID-19 vaccine will be covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance, and will be free if you are uninsured.

The two vaccines approved by the FDA work similarly. They cause the body to develop fighter cells called antibodies. A genetic code of a small part of the virus (the spike protein) is injected into the body; this is taken up by cells, which reproduce the protein. These are then recognized by the body as foreign proteins. The fighter cells work to get rid of the proteins, while creating a memory bank of these proteins to defend against future infection.

Nearly all COVID-19 vaccines being studied in the United States require two shots. The first shot starts building protection, but everyone has to come back a few weeks later for the second one to get the most protection the vaccine can offer.

Vaccine safety is a priority. All COVID-19 vaccines must go through a rigorous and multi-step testing and approval process before they can be used. They will only be approved if they pass safety and effectiveness standards. Many people took part in this testing to see how the vaccines offer protection to people of different ages, races and ethnicities, as well as those with different medical conditions. Vaccines will also be monitored for safety once they are given.

Your arm may be sore, red or warm to the touch. These symptoms usually go away on their own within a week. Some people report getting a fever, fatigue, headache, chills, or muscle and joint pain. This is a natural response and a sign that your immune system is doing exactly what it is expected to do. It is working to build protection to disease. Vaccines will also be monitored for safety once they are given.

No, the vaccine will not cause the COVID-19 illness. The vaccine is made up of only a part of the virus (the spike protein), just enough for the body to recognize is as a foreign material to produce antibodies.

Some people feel sick after vaccination. These symptoms are the same symptoms we get when we have the infection and are a sign of the body working hard to fight the infection and develop antibodies.

COVID-19 vaccines are being tested in large clinical trials to assess their safety. However, it does take time, and more people need to be vaccinated before we learn about very rare or long-term side effects. That is why safety monitoring will continue by an independent group of experts with the CDC. They will provide regular safety updates for our immediate action.

We don’t know how long protection lasts for those who get infected or those who are vaccinated. What we do know is that COVID-19 has caused very serious illness and death for a lot of people. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a safer choice.

Both the vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and from Moderna have two doses. After only one dose your protection might be around 50%. The second dose provides a boost that gives strong, long-lasting immunity. After both doses, both the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines have 94% and 95% efficacy, respectively.

It will take about a week after the second dose for you to have the vaccine’s full protection.

No, the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines, while using the same approach, are different from each other. So the second dose should be the same vaccine.

You will still need to practice precautions like wearing a mask, social distancing, handwashing and other hygiene measures until many more people are vaccinated. This is because there’s still a chance you could pass the virus to someone else even though you don’t get sick yourself.

If you’ve had COVID-19, you have natural immunity that may last months to years but is not indefinite. People who have had COVID-19 may be advised to get the vaccine because they could still be reinfected and could still possibly infect someone else.

Yes, you can receive COVID-19 vaccine while pregnant or breastfeeding. Even though pregnant and breastfeeding women were not included in the clinical trials, experts support vaccination to prevent infection.

Children below age 16 have not been included in current trials and are not considered a priority.

No, while the vaccine is made of a genetic material, it does not interact with the genome. It encodes for specific proteins (in this case the spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus), which then gets decoded by the ribosome (protein making organelle/part of a cell) located outside of the nucleus where our genome is housed. mRNA in the cell is also degraded relatively quickly limiting long-lasting impact.
