It’s easy to get a vaccine now- but some are still holding out

SPOKANE, Wash.- It’s now easier than ever to get a vaccine and the summer plans for our families are dependent upon the vaccination numbers going up. Many pharmacies like Walgreens, Albertsons, and Rite Aid (in both Washington and Idaho) are taking walk-in vaccinations and appointments can be made same-day.

Despite the ease of getting a vaccine, 10% of the population say they’ll get the vaccine whenever they get around to it. That’s according a recent Harris Poll.

Governor Inslee shared on Tuesday that the vaccinations are “our ticket to reopening.” He followed by saying “There is reason to have hope that if, IF, we continue our progress on vaccinations, sometime in the summer, we could potentially have normal activities in our state.”

4 News Now spoke with one Spokane resident after getting her vaccination, and she had been part of that 10% prior to her appointment. Tiffany told us, “I wasn’t looking into it before but then I hopped online and was like, “Oh! Well, this is easy!” I scheduled the appointment for that same day.”

Tiffany works in at-home care for the elderly population so she knew it was important to get vaccinated for more than just her own good. “I need to protect myself and others.”

She told us she made her appointment Friday morning, on a whim, and she was in and out within 20 minutes flat. “I’m going to feel very confident and relieved that I’m not potentially infecting them with something that can kill them,” she told us.
