“Since the onset of the pandemic, Seattle has led the way on COVID-19 with the fewest cases, hospitalizations, and deaths of any major U.S. city, and we did that by following the science. Science is telling us today that the best way to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our community from COVID is to get vaccinated. As we move into the holiday season and join with friends and family more frequently indoors, vaccinations become even more important.

The new Rainier Beach Vaccination Clinic will add capacity to provide thousands of vaccines and boosters to South Seattle communities, supporting equitable access in one of our more diverse parts of the city. I’m grateful to the SouthEast Seattle Senior Center, Center for Multicultural Health, and Mary Mahoney Professional Nurses Organization who are stepping up to support our neighbors at this critical juncture. Through our partnerships we can continue to ensure the City of Seattle remains one of the highest vaccinated cities in the country.”

–Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan

“We recognize that many members of the BIPOC [Black, Indigenous, and People of Color] community reside in the Rainier Valley. Those individuals are under vaccinated and are in need of a vaccination location that is in their community which is why we’re excited for this partnership. During the pandemic, the Center continues to partner with the City of Seattle to support the much-needed vaccination site in the Rainier Valley. We are in the community, and our community members know us and they trust us!

–SouthEast Seattle Senior Center Executive Director Lynda Greene
