Spokane residents can now get vaccinated at fire stations in their own neighbohoods.
At the first vaccine clinic at a fire staion in northeast Spokane, Mayor Nadine Woodward said she hopes bringing shots directly to the communiy will make getting vaccinated easier, and bring Spokane one step closer to re-opening.
"We want to continue to push the importance of vaccines in our community. Spokane County is at 50% initial vaccination. We need to get to that 70% statewide in order to fully open June 30."
The clinics are offering the Pfizer vaccine, which children as young as 12 can receive, and the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, which is one dose, but only for adults. There will be 18 clinics in June at fire stations across the city. People can show up to the clinics without making an appointment or make an appointment online. A full list of clinics and locations is available at on the Spokane Regional Health District’s website at SRHD.org/events.
