KING COUNTY, Wash. — Starting Monday, there will be more opportunities for people living in south King County to get a COVID-19 shot.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency will open its Mobile Community Vaccination Center in Federal Way and Auburn.
The demand for COVID-19 boosters and children’s vaccines has been great, but it has been difficult for some people in the county to get an appointment, according to Public Health – Seattle & King County.
And because of this, FEMA staff will set up the temporary community clinic, which has a capacity to vaccinate 300-500 people per day.
Those looking to get their first or second dose, children’s vaccines and boosters can do so but appointments are strongly advised.
From Dec. 20 through Jan. 3, the community clinic will be set up at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Events Center at 31510 Pete Von Reichbauer Way S., Federal Way.
From Jan. 5-20, the community clinic will be set up at the Auburn – General Services Administration Complex at 2701 C Street SW, Auburn.
Appointments will be open from 2-9 p.m. daily (closed on Dec. 24-25, Dec. 31, Jan.1, Jan. 4, and Jan.17).
