                                      Seattle/King County Clinic is for people who struggle to access and/or afford healthcare.

•         September 20–23, 2018 at Seattle Center. One month earlier this year! 

•         All are welcome regardless of income, insurance, or immigration status. Patients will not be asked for documentation of any type. 

•         All services are FREE  

o    Dental: fillings, extractions, x-rays, deep cleanings 

o    Vision: vision screening, complete eye exams, reading glasses and prescription eyeglasses. Bring a current eyeglass prescription (no older than one year) to skip exam and just get eyeglasses.

o    Medical: physical exams, lab tests, mammograms, x-rays, ultrasounds, EKGs, immunizations, and more 

o    Resources: social work, help with health insurance, and more

How it works: 

•         No advance registration: first-come, first-served

•         Get a ticket in the tent on Fisher Pavilion at Seattle Center (Corner of 2nd Ave N. & Thomas St.)

•         12:30 AM: tent opens for shelter (not required to be there at that time)

•         5:00 AM: tickets distributed (one ticket per person, ticket is only good for that day)

•         6:30 AM: patients enter the Clinic in KeyArena in order of the number on ticket

•         Highest demand for tickets on Saturday & Sunday

•         Interpreters available

•         Free parking - 1st Ave Garage (220 1st Ave N) or Mercer St. Garage (650 3rd Ave N)

•         Cannot get both dental and vision care on the same day

•         May attend the Clinic for multiple days, but must go through the ticket process each day


How should patients prepare?

•         Come prepared for a long day with food, comfortable clothing and any daily medications

•         DO NOT fast for lab tests.

•         No pets except service animals. Pet sitting is available.
