The City of Kent and King County are in discussions to host a COVID-19 vaccination site at accesso ShoWare Center in Kent.
Final details are still being negotiated and a contract hasn’t been signed by both parties yet, but it is anticipated it will be completed in the coming days, the city said.
- The initial goal of the site will be to provide 500 vaccinations daily, six days per week by appointment only, scaling up contingent on supply.
- The City of Kent would provide backend logistical support through operation of the facility, technical support and traffic support through the Kent Police Department.
- However, the day to day operations would be run by the King County Department of Community and Human Services along with Public Health – Seattle & King County.
“Along with the kickoff of Puget Sound Fire’s mobile vaccinations for adult family homes, I am excited to share that we are looking into setting up a high volume vaccination site at the accesso ShoWare Center in partnership with King County,” Mayor Dana Ralph said.
More details will be announced in the coming days.
