Mayor Jenny A. Durkan joins other city and county leaders and health care and community partners at the new Community Testing and Vaccination Clinic in Rainier Beach to announce the next phase of the City's expanded vaccination effort. The City of Seattle is expanding the citywide mobile vaccination strategy and opening new, fixed vaccination sites-including a mass vaccination site later this month.

The expanded City of Seattle operations are as follows:

  • Partnering with UW Medicine on its new Mobile Vaccination Teams, which will initially administer hundreds of doses to the highest-risk communities each week;
  • Partnering with Swedish on continuing its mobile vaccination clinics;
  • Opening two permanent fixed COVID-19 Community Testing and Vaccination Clinics in Rainier Beach and West Seattle, which will together initially administer approximately 2,000 doses each week; and
  • In partnership with Swedish and First & Goal Inc., the City will soon open a mass vaccination site at the Lumen Field Event Center, which will initially administer approximately 5,000 doses each week.
