Vaccinations available some days on Seattle/Bremerton ferry runs

SEATTLE — Starting Tuesday, riders on the Seattle/Bremerton ferry can get a COVID-19 shot.

Staff from Peninsula Community Health Services will be giving vaccines on board both Seattle/Bremerton ferries on May 25 to 27 and June 1 to 3.

Passengers who want to get a shot can do so on sailings departing either the Seattle or Bremerton terminal on those days during the following times:

Chimacum – 8:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Salish – 10:20 a.m. to 4:05 p.m.

Vaccines will be given during the first 30 minutes of each sailing so recipients can be monitored for any reactions.

No insurance or identification is needed. Peninsula Community Health Services plans to have both the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines available.

Children who are 12 and older can be given the Pfizer vaccine with parental permission.
