Washington state health officials said they will open four new mass vaccination sites this week. One of them will be at the Clark County Fairgrounds in Ridgefield. The other three sites are in Kennewick, Spokane and Wenatchee.
The sites are open by appointment only to people who have pre-registered and are eligible for the vaccine under Phase 1A or 1B-1. Those without appointments will be turned away.
according to the Washington State Department of Health, the sites will focus Monday on pre-vaccination planning and preparation.
“Start dates were determined by the arrival of vaccine,” WSDOH said in a press release. “Ridgefield, Wenatchee and Kennewick will administer Pfizer BioNTech, which will be delivered Monday afternoon and requires time to thaw.”
