Gov. Inslee to visit Spokane Arena vaccination site Friday

SPOKANE, Wash. — Governor Jay Inslee will be in Spokane Friday to visit the mass vaccination site at the Spokane Arena.

He will tour the facility, then meet with media before visiting Second Harvest.

This will be Inslee’s first visit to the Arena vaccination site, though Department of Health Secretary Dr. Umair Shah toured the facility in February.

Inslee last visited Spokane in February, when he toured Stevens Elementary. His visit was to look at how local students have been transitioning to in-person learning. Shortly after, Inslee announced measures to bring more students back into classrooms.

4 News Now will be covering the governor’s visit and have more information during our 5 and 6 p.m. broadcasts on Friday.
