East Wenatchee, WA - The Chelan Douglas Health District (CDHD) is deciding to prioritize local testing efforts in hopes of getting all infectious individuals isolated at home to help reduce local case rates.

Due to limited staff, weather conditions and minimal registrations, the incident management team has cancelled the January 15 vaccine clinic at 228 Chumstick highway in Leavenworth and starting January 17, the Monday through Thursday vaccine clinic at 110 2nd street in East Wenatchee will stop operations until further notice.  

If you received a first dose at the CDHD 2nd street clinic and are due for a second dose next week or in the weeks to follow, please plan to attend one of the upcoming vaccine clinics scheduled at 1224 Methow street in Wenatchee.  Dates, times and pre-registration details are available at: CDHD staff is working to personally communicate this change to any first dose individuals who are due for their second dose in the coming weeks.  

CDHD continues to stress the importance of a COVID-19 vaccine and getting the booster as soon as possible.  If you are in need of a first, second or booster vaccine, please contact a local pharmacy or your local medical provider.  

For more information or to stay up-to-date on the COVID-19 response, visit and follow CDHD on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
