SEIU 775 President, Sterling Harders, speaking at vaccine event

Seattle’s first-ever pop-up coronavirus vaccine clinic went off without a hitch as home healthcare workers received their first dose of the vaccine.

It was an invitation-only clinic to vaccinate those caring for some of the state’s most vulnerable residents.

So eager were the caregivers to get vaccinated, they came early. The clinic wrapped up at about 5 p.m., with a lot of caregivers getting vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan eagerly kicked off the clinic’s opening.

“The city of Seattle is working together in partnership with so many people to make this happen,” said Durkan, “because we know vaccinations are our hope.”

That partnership included SEIU Local 775. That’s how Mary Guski learned about the clinic and why she was able to get her vaccine.
