COVID-19 Vaccine Update (1/19/21)
Gov. Jay Inslee officially moved Washington State into Phase 1B on Monday, January 18th with an updated statewide vaccine distribution and administration plan to increase the number of Washingtonians vaccinated and establish infrastructure capable of mass vaccinations in the coming months.
KVH has developed a drive-through mass vaccination clinic program for the general public at the Klickitat County Fairgrounds. This program will begin on Monday, January 25th and will include people 65+ and people 50+ living in multigenerational housing. The District is happy to report there will be no direct charge to patients for the vaccine.
