SEATTLE– The key to protection from the flu is getting immunized early and safely. Bartell Drugs is taking a calculated approach to help customers get vaccinated during the pandemic.

“Getting vaccinated for the flu is more important now than ever. Getting a flu shot early in the season will reduce the spread of the flu, leaving healthcare providers to focus on patients battling COVID-19.” said Billy Chow, vice preseident of pharmacy at Bartell Drugs.

To maintain safe distancing in waiting areas, Bartell’s has implemented a scheduling system. The scheduling system creates the appropriate amount of time between customers to allow for critical cleaning practices. Customers seeking vaccinations may schedule an appointment online at Upon arrival, customers should check in at the pharmacy drop-off window while maintaining safe distancing in the waiting area. All parties must wear a mask for the duration of the appointment. To further protect customers and Bartell’s staff, pharmacists will be wearing proper PPE including masks and gloves.
