Pfizer shots were offered in Snohomish County for walk-up appointments, near Mill Creek on May 2, and all 600 doses went to use.
Anyone age 16 and older can reserve a dose, now, for Sunday at the Ash Way Park & Ride vaccination site in Lynnwood, according to a news release from the health district. A parent or guardian must accompany anyone under the age of 18. Registration is available for drive-thru appointments at https://bit.ly/336V43q. Those interested in making a walk-up appointment for arrival by transit or on foot, go to https://bit.ly/3nHyojQ. Onsite registration is available today: minors should arrive with an adult and both adult and minor need identification.
Mass vaccination sites in the county are expanding hours to evenings and weekends. Check the Snohomish Health District website for updates.
The Snohomish County Vaccine Taskforce began vaccinating people against COVID in early January. For nearly four months, the demand for vaccine far exceeded supply. Appointments filled consistently and quickly for the mass vaccination sites.
That changed abruptly in the plast week, the health district says. Like other counties and states, the taskforce has seen a sudden decrease in demand, even as supply is more consistent and appointments more readily available. Appointments during the week of April 19 still were filling. During the week of April 26, they were not.
Pfizer continues to show itself safe with more data available and it is measured as at least 90% effective at preventing illness from COVID-19. One clinical trial study is here: https://bit.ly/3ucBnTv.
