Pop-up vaccination clinic held in Seattle’s Greenwood neighborhood

SEATTLE — The city of Seattle is holding a vaccination pop-up clinic in the Greenwood neighborhood on Saturday.

The vaccination clinic is being held outside of the Flying Bike Cooperative Brewery, located at 8570 Greenwood Ave. N. and is a partnership between the city, the Phinney Neighborhood Association and Bluebird Ice Cream.

The clinic runs from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., and all three vaccines will be available.

“With nearly 75% of residents 12 and older starting the vaccination process, we’re changing our approach to reach folks who haven’t yet had access to this lifesaving vaccine. Seattle is bringing the vaccine directly to communities and breaking down as many barriers as possible to getting vaccinated,” said Mayor Jenny Durkan. “Our pop-up clinics with breweries and business districts have been an incredible success, and we’ve managed to reach hundreds of Seattleites who may not have even planned to get vaccinated. I encourage everyone who still needs either their first or second dose of vaccine to visit Greenwood this Saturday, and help get us further down the road to recovery.”

The second doses will also be available with proof of a first vaccination.

The Mayor’s office said more than 210,000 vaccinations have been given to adults since vaccination efforts launched in mid-January.

“These vaccinations have occurred at 88 adult family homes, 90 affordable housing buildings with seniors and people with disabilities, 24 pop-ups, 20 permanent supportive housing buildings, two vulnerable youth-serving organizations, city sporting events and the four city-affiliated fixed vaccination sites.”
