Seattle fixed vaccination sites to end this month

Mayor Jenny A. Durkan announced at the end of May that the City of Seattle’s fixed vaccination sites at the Lumen Field Event Center, North Seattle College, Rainier Beach and West Seattle will all end their operations in June.

The Lumen Field Event Center, Rainier Beach, and West Seattle vaccination sites will continue to administer first and second doses until their final days of operation; and first and second doses will be administered at the Seattle Fire Department Testing and Vaccination Site in SODO. SFD will also continue mobile and pop-up efforts in the coming weeks. 

The Community Vaccination Site at the Lumen Field Event Center, which opened March 13 as the largest civilian-run vaccination site in the country, will cease operations June 12. Since its opening, Lumen Field has administered more than 97,000 vaccinations, including nearly 51,000 first doses. Of those vaccinated at Lumen Field, 41 percent of those vaccinated identify as BIPOC communities, compared with 33 percent of the broader Seattle population.

On Jan. 14, Seattle Fire became the first emergency medical services agency in Washington state to administer COVID-19 vaccines. The SFD Community Vaccination Hubs at Rainier Beach and West Seattle will cease operations on June 23 and June 9, respectively. UW Medicine’s testing trailers will remain open at each hub, even after vaccinations end. Since their opening, the SFD hubs have administered nearly 107,000 vaccinations combined, including more than 60,000 first doses. Of those vaccinated at the West Seattle Hub, 39 percent identify as BIPOC, and 57 percent of those vaccinated at the Rainier Beach Hub identify as BIPOC. The SFD Mobile Vaccination Teams will serve as the City’s primary vaccination effort through the summer.

People should continue to follow all public health guidance, including indoor masking for vaccinated and unvaccinated people.
