Drive-thru vaccination clinics open in Everett and Lynnwood

EVERETT — The Snohomish Health District has opened two appointment-only, drive-thru vaccine clinics — one at Paine Field in Everett and another at Edmonds Community College in Lynnwood.

The sites can administer a combined 700 doses per day, health district spokesperson Kari Bray said in an email. And that number could grow.

The public clinics are expected to bolster the county’s ability to quickly get shots into arms, and speed up what has been a slow roll out of the state’s vaccine distribution plan.

“We’ve done this because the math is simple,” Executive Dave Somers said during a Tuesday media briefing. “We have nearly 900,000 residents. Our goal is to vaccinate everyone this year. We need additional capacity beyond the existing system and we must do it in an orderly fashion.”
