1.     Find the Community Vaccination Center on PrepMod.

PrepMod step by step

  • If you are eligible to be vaccinated right now, go to the WA DOH PrepMod site to check for available appointments.  

  • Click the blue “Find a clinic” button and then check “COVID-19 Vaccination” under “Which service(s) are you seeking?” on the next screen. Leave every other box in this section blank.

  • Type "Bellingham" in the Search by Name of Location box and click Search.


You do not need to fill out any other section in PrepMod to find the CVC. Adding your zip code will add other clinics to your search, and the CVC may not show up near the top if you search by zip code.


2.   Sign Up. Once you have found the Bellingham site, click the blue “Sign up for a COVID-19 Vaccination” button.

  • If there is no button available, all appointments for the vaccination clinic have been filled. 

  • If an appointment is available, schedule your shot. 

3.   Select your appointment time. You will be able to select an appointment time. This appointment time will be held for you for 15 minutes while you complete the scheduling process. 

4.   Stand-by list: If there are no appointments left for the clinic, you can be added to a stand-by list for that day. (It will be referred to as a waitlist on the PrepMod site.) This list is only for extra doses for that day’s clinic. If there are extra doses at the end of the day, we’ll give you a call. This is not a wait list for future appointments. 

5.   Fill out the personal information for the person who will be getting the shot. It is vital the information is entered correctly. All fields marked with a * (red star) are required. Please note that the insurance question is only for our information and insurance will not be billed for this vaccine. No administration fee will be charged at this site. We will not ask for your Social Security number. 

6.   Finish entering information. Work your way through the rest of the online scheduling system. It will ask you questions about your medical history and consent for vaccination. 

7.   Consent. You will be asked to provide consent for vaccination. By signing this form, you are giving permission for a vaccination to be given and a record of the vaccine to be entered into a database to monitor and control COVID-19. This information is kept in compliance with privacy laws.You are also agreeing that the information you provided is correct and that you understand the risks and benefits of getting the vaccine. 

8.   Review your information. If something is incorrect, you can edit by clicking the “BACK” button. Please note: as you fill out the pages, your information will be saved. 

9.   You will receive a confirmation email. This is how you know your appointment was received. 

10. You are registered for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment! Please show up to the BTC site no more than 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Please wait in your car or six feet away from others until the time of your appointment.
