The health district opened a sixth mass vaccination site. The closest one to Mill Creek remains the Boeing site.

The newest mass vaccination site in the county is scheduled to open Tuesday, April 6.

"I've been told there are appointments available" now, said Dr. Chris Spitters, Health Officer for the Snohomish Health District. Spitters said that at 9:42 a.m. April 6, in a weekly update from the county's Joint Information Commission.

The site is located at Boom City, 10274 27th Avenue N.E. in Tulalip. It is the sixth mass vaccination site coordinated by the Snohomish County Vaccine Taskforce. This site is in partnership with the Tulalip Tribes.

The Boom City site is set up for drive-thru access and is by appointment only, for those eligible under the phased approach to vaccination. The phases are set to open on April 15, expanding eligibility to all adults, and those 16 and older for the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine is the only vaccine so far authorized for those younger than 18.

The other five mass vaccination sites in the county will continue operating. The closest one to Mill Creek is at the Boeing Everett Activity Center, as confirmed in a recent Mill Creek City Council meeting. Councilmember Benjamin Briles asked the health district for that information, when the Snohomish Health District visited the council for a presentation.
