Nearly six months after launching our mobile vaccination clinic in order to help the underserved and vulnerable populations affected by COVID-19 in our area, we bid adieu. At this point in time, we will continue to support our community with the mobile clinic when there is a need.

We couldn’t have done this work without our incredible partners: CellNetix Pathology & Laboratories, T-Mobile, Denali, Starbucks, YMCA and SEIU-1199 NW. Here’s what you helped us achieve:

  • 9,119 vaccines administered
  • 21 mobile clinic sites
  • 160 volunteers
  • 4,080 volunteer hours

“Words alone cannot express the immense gratitude I have for our partners,” said Nwando Anyaoku, M.D., chief health equity officer. “Each partner made it possible for our Swedish mobile vaccine clinic team to equitably deliver vaccines to more vulnerable communities in a way that helped overcome a lot of barriers they would typically face.”
