COVID-19 Updates

Ask your provider about the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine

*UPDATE*
We are doing our best to serve our community by getting as many patients vaccinated with the COVID vaccine as possible, but unfortunately, the vaccine supply that CHC receives is very unpredictable at the moment. We will continue to offer appointments as our inventory allows.

—————————————————————-

The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is now available for patients 65 and over AND those who are 50 and over living in a multigenerational household.
CHC is working closely with the Snohomish Health District and the Department of Health on a plan to administer the COVID-19 vaccine. We are in Phase 1b-Tier 1, offering the Moderna vaccine to CHC patients over age 65 and those over 50 who also live in a multigenerational household.
An appointment is required to receive the vaccine. We ask that you call us at (425)789-3789 to schedule an appointment, as we are not administering the vaccine at our Walk-In clinics at this time.

We will continue to update this page to keep you informed.

If you would like to learn more about the plans guiding the vaccine rollout and when you might be eligible, please visit:

Please remember to keep safe, even after receiving the vaccine.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can COVID-19 start with a sore throat?

The most common symptoms of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Some patients also have body aches, runny nose, sore throat, or diarrhea. If you have a sore throat and think you have been exposed to the new coronavirus, contact a health care provider by phone and discuss your risk.

How is it spread?

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person via close contact (within about 6 feet) and mostly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected individual coughs or sneezes. People are most contagious when they are most symptomatic (the sickest), although some spread occurs before people show any symptoms. It is possible for a person to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then subsequently touching their mouth, nose, or eyes, although this does not appear to be the most common way it is spread.

Who is affected?

The virus can affect anyone, but the severity of symptoms varies tremendously. Most people will experience mild symptoms and will likely not know they were infected with COVID-19, but as we have all seen in the news, some people experience severe illness and death from the virus. It seems to be hitting the elderly population (>65 years of age) and individuals with chronic medical conditions (heart, lung, and/or kidney disease) the hardest.

Am I contagious if I haven’t developed symptoms yet?

While some people develop symptoms of COVID-19, others do not. COVID-19 is contagious whether or not you experience symptoms.

If you have the flu or COVID-19 symptoms, please call us at one of the clinics near you to schedule an appointment.

  • Arlington Clinic: (360) 572-5400
  • Edmonds Walk-In Clinic: (425) 640-5500
  • Everett-Central Walk-In Clinic: (425) 382-4033
  • Everett-North Clinic: (425) 789-2000
  • Everett-South Clinic: (425) 551-6200
When do I seek help?

If you are experiencing difficulty breathing, it’s important that you get in touch with medical personnel.

What do I do to stay safe?

The most important thing to do at this time is to remain calm and aware. We can do the following:

– Wash Your Hands: This is the most important activity any of us can do to protect ourselves and others. It is important to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (sing the Happy Birthday song twice) and dry them with a clean towel (paper towel) or air dry them. Please wash your hands after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, after touching garbage, as well as any other time you feel your hands have been in contact with a dirty surface.

– Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing: Whenever possible, do so with the inside of your elbow instead of your hands, and always remember to wash your hands afterward.

– Avoid close contact with anyone who has been exposed to the coronavirus and is presenting with symptoms of respiratory illness (coughing, sneezing, fever, etc.)

– If you are sick and have been in contact with anyone exposed to COVID-19, please stay home. This is also true of many other infections such as the Flu, the Common Cold, and the Stomach Flu.

How long does the illness last?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) states that from the time a person is exposed to the virus, it can take approximately 2 to 14 days to become ill. How long the illness lasts varies per person. The recommendation is that home isolation should continue for at least 3 days (72 hours) after you no longer have a fever (without fever-reducing medication) AND you have seen improvement in respiratory symptoms AND at least 7 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.

My employer wants me to be tested before I return to work

We are prioritizing patients that are symptomatic and may need hospitalization. In addition to patients who are ill, the CDC has established the following priorities:

1. Hospitalized patients and symptomatic health care workers

2. Symptomatic people in long-term care, 65 and older, have underlying health conditions or are first responders.

3. Symptomatic persons that work in other critical infrastructure, non-symptomatic health care workers and first responders, and people with mild symptoms in an area of high infection.
