So, the experts say those in the outlying areas of the county have lower vaccination rates than those of the “city folk” (Vaccination rates in the county vary greatly by location,” The Herald, June 1). Where were the vaccination clinics located? With the exception of the Arlington airport, they were all in the main cities. Where are the immunizations still available? Oh, yes, the main city, i.e., Everett.
If the numbers in Granite Falls, Darrington, Sultan, Stanwood, Monroe and the other smaller Snohomish County towns, why aren’t the clinics being brought to those communities? Transportation would have been a huge barrier for me when I lived in the outskirts of the county! How is giving tickets away to a baseball game in Everett going to bring someone in from Granite Falls for a shot if the can’t get to a mass clinic?
Come on, experts! Bring the pop-up clinics to those outlying towns, with plenty of notice! You won’t need an entire contingent of employees, probably half of the normal would do.
Alaska took the vaccine to their remote locations with aircraft, why can’t we do it with autos?
It’s not rocket science.
