Kadlec and the Benton Franklin Health District will be holding a COVID-19 vaccination clinic tomorrow (Friday, 1/22/20), at the Kadlec Healthplex in Richland.  (1268 Lee Boulevard-Richland, WA  99352)

The clinic is available to those who meet Phase 1A and 1B Tier 1 eligibility, including people who are 65 and older and those who are 50 and older living in a multi-generational household. The vaccine doses are limited and available to people by appointment only. NO walk-ins. To learn more and schedule an appointment, click here.

According to a Kadlec release:

Kadlec is following state COVID-19 vaccine distribution guidelines and is committed to the safe and equitable distribution of the vaccine. We are encouraged by the interest in the community to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and encourage everyone to get vaccinated when it’s available to them, as it is a key step in saving lives and ending the pandemic. It is important that the community understand that the number of people eligible to receive the vaccine far exceeds the number of doses of vaccine we have available at this time. It will take time and community partnerships to vaccinate everyone who wants to be vaccinated for COVID-19. We look forward to offering additional community vaccination clinics as vaccine is available.

To find out when you and your family will be eligible to receive the vaccine, visit the Washington State Department of Health Website and click on the Vaccine Phase Finder tool.

As always, you are encouraged to keep wearing a mask, practice social distancing, washing your hands frequently, and keeping your social gatherings small.
