Time: May 28th, Fri., 3pm to 5pm
Location: 300 Rainier Ave N, Renton, WA 98057 (Parking area next to the REACH Meal Coalition Building)
100 shots of the Covid-19 vaccines are scheduled to be administered at this event, most of which will be the single-shot Johnson & Johnson Vaccine. The intended primary recipients of these vaccines will be the clients at the REACH Meal Coalition, many of whom are chronically homeless, facing legitimate barriers to vaccination access and resources, and are at increased risks of severe illness from contracting Covid-19. If you work with a community organization that serves chronically homeless population in the area, or if you are able to spread the words about this vaccination event on your platform, please do so as we’d like to get as many folks in this particularly vulnerable population vaccinated as possible.
We also welcome other community members to drop by this event and receive their dose of the Covid-19 Vaccine. This is a drive-by event, so no prior registrations are needed, and personal identifications are not required as to protect the privacy of the clients we serve.
This vaccination event is being coordinated by REACH Renton, the City of Renton, Renton Fire Department, and Seattle Public Health. Our special thank you to Maryjane Van Cleave, City of Renton Recreation & Neighborhood Director, for leading the planning process of this event! We are also actively planning for several future vaccination events, some of which will be at our Center of Hope location, so stay tuned.
