Free mass-vaccination site opens Tuesday at Everett Mall

Hundreds of appointments are up for grabs at the state-run site, which will offer initial doses, boosters and pediatric shots.

EVERETT — A new mass-vaccination site is to open Tuesday at the Everett Mall as part of the state’s effort to combat a record surge in COVID infections.

Hundreds of appointments are up for grabs at snohd.org/EverettMallVax. A call center is also operating weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 425-339-5278, for those with limited internet access.

The indoor site will be in the former Wet Seal clothing store at 1402 Everett Mall Way, No. 385. Officials will dole out all three versions of the COVID vaccine, offering initial doses, boosters and third doses, as well as kid-sized shots in partnership with the state and federal government’s emergency management agencies.

The site will operate Tuesday to Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and Sundays, 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Kids as young as 5 are now eligible for a COVID vaccine, and those 12 and up are eligible for boosters. Some kids 5 or older who are immunocompromised are also eligible for a third dose.

The new site will soon be paired with a state-run mass-testing site, as well. State and local health officials are still working with FEMA to hammer out details, according to a Monday news release.

“These resources couldn’t be coming to Snohomish County at a better time, and we are most appreciative of the partnerships that have helped make them happen,” county Health Officer Dr. Chris Spitters said in a statement. “This added capacity for testing and vaccines will help those searching for appointments, as well as helping to relieve some of the pressure on the broader health care system.”

The county and state have placed orders for hundreds of thousands of at-home rapid tests that will be distributed in coming weeks. And the White House announced an online portal for people to order free rapid tests, with plans to go live Wednesday. That site is covidtests.gov.
