PASCO, Wash. – With the October 18 deadline looming for state employees to be fully vaccinated, Columbia Basin College will hold a free vaccine clinic on Monday, Oct. 4 from 10 am to 2 pm. Monday is the last day someone can take either the second dose of Pfizer or the one-time dose of Johnson & Johnson and achieve fully vaccinated status by the governor’s Oct. 18 deadline to retain state employment. Anticipating large crowds, CBC is partnering with the Washington State Department of Health’s Care-A-Van to offer all three available COVID-19 vaccines.

The first 100 participants receiving their initial course of vaccination will be offered a $50 Safeway gift card, courtesy of the DOH. Booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine will be available for those who attest they are immunocompromised; however, participants receiving a booster shot will not be eligible to receive a gift card.

The event will take place in the H Building Parking Lot on the Pasco campus. Participants will enter via Argent and Saraceno Way. This is a drop-in clinic with no pre-registration. Spanish translation will be available. Vaccines will be administered by healthcare provider Bird’s Eye Medical.
