Seattle opened its fourth vaccination site in the city at North Seattle College on Wednesday, Mayor Jenny Durkan said.

The Seattle Visiting Nurse Association will give 1,170 doses per week – or about 390 per day of surgery. Due to their size and staff capacity, the nurses can give 6,400 vaccinations per week. The city’s staff will support you with voice access, logistics and registration.

The site is designed as a drive-through area, but there is also space for strolls through the 95th Street entrance on College Way.

Patients can get their recordings at the hub from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday through Friday, three days a week. As the offer increases, the days and hours of operation will increase, the city announced in a press release.

The North Seattle location is the fourth location in the city after opening locations in Rainier Beach, West Seattle and the Lumen Field Event Center.

“This side is all the more important as cases are increasing in our city, but particularly in the North End,” Durkan said in a statement.

Organizations that serve blacks, indigenous peoples and people in color communities, older adults, and immigrants and refugees will be given prior registration to gain access to this new location.

Those eligible for vaccines can sign up to be notified of Seattle dates available. As soon as more appointments are available, the registered people will receive an email notification.

Seattle residents can also call the Customer Service office at 206-684-2489 Monday through Saturday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. for assistance in completing this form. Linguistic support is available over the phone.
