Capital Medical Center is here for you
We are eager to vaccinate as many individuals as possible and are doing everything we can to ensure a smooth rollout at our facilities and also in our community.
Thurston County has nearly 300,000 residents and more than 70,000 of those residents are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine based on Phase 1A and Phase 1B Tier 1 requirements. Vaccine allocation is received on a week-by-week basis and we will schedule appointments as they become available. The quantity of vaccines received drives the number of appointments that are available.
Appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine are in high demand and Capital Medical Center is currently working through a long waitlist for those in Phase 1A, and Phase 1B, Tier 1 in accordance with Washington DOH guidelines.
This information changes rapidly, and we thank you for your continued patience and understanding. Check our website and social media platforms often for vaccination plan updates.
COVID-19 Vaccination Waitlist
How We Are Keeping You Safe
- Screening and temperature checks for every person entering our facilities, including staff.

- Physical distancing in our waiting areas and clinical areas.

Limited Entry Points
To enter Capital Medical Center, please use the Emergency entrance on the south side of the hospital. The emergency entrance is open 24 hours a day. All other entry points will be closed until further notice.
Capital is taking every precaution to keep our patients and staff safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our facilities. For this reason, we are following the CDC recommendation and state and county mandates that anyone who enters our facility must wear a face mask at all times. Why wear a mask? Recent studies show that universal masking, in addition to practicing social distancing and proper hand hygiene, can help prevent the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19, especially in individuals who may not know they are ill. And until there is a vaccine, these measures are our best line of defense in protecting not only you, but also our healthcare workers and community members.
Out of an abundance of caution and to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, we are implementing visitor restrictions and will be limiting entry points to the hospital.
Visitor restrictions expanded at Capital Medical Center: Hospital visitors are not permitted until further notice.
To help ensure the safety of our patients, providers, employees and community, our facility has implemented a zero-visitor protocol effective immediately.
