Mayor Jenny A. Durkan announces that now that more than 76 percent of Seattle's residents 12 and older have begun the vaccination process, and more than 60 percent are fully vaccinated, the City of Seattle's fixed vaccination sites will end their operations in June. The Lumen Field Event Center, Rainier Beach, and West Seattle vaccination sites will continue to administer first and second doses until their final days of operation; and first and second doses will be administered at the Seattle Fire Department (SFD) Testing and Vaccination Site in SODO. SFD will also continue mobile and pop-up efforts in the coming weeks.

The Community Vaccination Site at the Lumen Field Event Center, which opened March 13 as the largest civilian-run vaccination site in the country, will cease operations on June 12. The SFD Community Vaccination Hubs at Rainier Beach and West Seattle will cease operations on June 23 and June 9, respectively. UW Medicine's testing trailers will remain open at each hub, even after vaccinations end and SFD Mobile Vaccination Teams (MVT) will serve as the City's primary vaccination effort through the summer, with a focus on delivering the vaccine to Seattle youth, who are currently underrepresented in the countywide vaccination effort.
