Second clinic scheduled for June 9, 1-4pm
The May 19 pop-up Covid-19 vaccination clinic, held at the Kenmore Community Club, proved so popular that a second clinic will be held June 9, 1-4pm. Many thanks to those who chose to get vaccinated, Kenmore Community Club Youth Council volunteers and the UW Medicine, Northshore Fire District 16 and the City of Kenmore.
Sixty-three people received free COVID-19 vaccinations May 19 at the Kenmore Community Club thanks to UW Medicine, the Northshore Fire District 16, and the City of Kenmore. The turnout exceeded the goal of 50 vaccinations.
The excellent turnout was credited to assistance from Kenmore Community Youth Councilors Seth Karlinsey, Avery Evans, and Deniz Muhittinoglu, who distributed hundreds of fliers throughout the neighborhood.
Kenmore Community Club president David Evans said, "We were happy to see so many youth 12 and up, folks who live nearby the Club, and our Hispanic neighbors."
"Increased local access to the covid vaccine and services will be a real help to our local area families," Kenmore City Council member Corina Pfeil said. "I’d like to see us get back to normal by end of summer."
A second clinic has been scheduled for June 9, 1-4pm, which will offer the same no-appointment walk-in vaccinations for Moderna first and second doses for anyone 18 years and older, and Pfizer first and second doses for anyone 12 years and older.
