From our friends at the White Center Community Development Association:
A vaccination clinic is being set up in White Center for 3/4 & 3/5 (with the second dose 3 weeks after) to serve 900 of our people as we move into Phase 1B for Washington.
The ask that I have for you is to help distribute this information with intentionality to your network, as we work to sign up our BIPOC White Center community members. In consideration of the pandemic, we want to ensure a focus on our elderly, non-English speaking neighbors, and those that either may not have access to or high proficiency in online capabilities.
These vaccinations will occur at Evergreen High School (830 SW 116th St, Seattle, WA 98146) in partnership with QFC and the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce
Who this includes:
– High-risk healthcare workers in health care settings
– High-risk first responders
– Long-term care facility residents
– All other workers at risk in health care settings
– All people 65 years or older
– All people 50 years or older in multigenerational households (homes where individuals from 2 or more generations reside such as an elder and a grandchild)
Here is the link:
Please note: This link to COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics is reserved for residents in White Center and immediately surrounding areas that fall into Washington State’s current Covid-19 vaccine eligibility phases: 1A, 1B1 (healthcare workers, high risk workers in health care settings, high risk first responders, 65+, 50+ in multigenerational households). In location field, type 98146 for Evergreen High School Clinic to make an appointment. Please tell people to enter 98146 as the zip code for this clinic.
If there are appointments available, walk-up registration will be done on-site. We will provide interpreters in multiple languages. Appointments will occur from 10:00AM – 4:00PM both days.
VOLUNTEERS ARE ALSO NEEDED! For volunteering at the site, we are prioritizing individuals who are bilingual, especially in Khmer, Vietnamese, Somali, Spanish since we have a large population of families who speak these languages in the White Center area. We are also prioritizing folks who can work both days, from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM. Compensation will be $25/hr. We would also ask for your assistance three weeks later for the second dosage that patients would be returning for.
