A resident receives a COVID-19 vaccine shot at one of the three locations in Snohomish County.

Two of the three new drive-through vaccination sites are open at Paine Field in Everett. Paine Field sites kicked off Jan. 6 and are available by appointment only for those who are in the current phase of COVID vaccination. The third is located at the Monroe Fairgrounds. For more information, go to bit.ly/SnoCoHub under the COVID-19 Vaccine button.

Drive-through options are intended to sup- plement the existing healthcare system, which continues to provide most vaccinations. The task force that implemented the drive-through sites is planning for additional mobile or pop-up vaccination sites and is reaching out to employers and community organizations, to expand access; particularly for those with barriers to accessing health care.
