Mayor Woodward receives second vaccine dose

SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward received her second dose of the COVID vaccine on Thursday, meaning she is now completely vaccinated.

She received it at Gonzaga’s vaccination clinic, saying both shots were painless and urged others to join her to move Spokane and the state forward.

“And we heard from the Governor today, we get to that 70 percent of first initiated vaccines we’re open, and I think we can do it before June 30th,” Woodward said.

While the state has been in-pause for the past week-and-a-half, she said the city has been working hard to create pop-up clinics, opportunities for people to get vaccinated and make getting a vaccine more convenient and accessible.

“We’re gonna continue to do that because we need to get over this hump and get to that 70 percent,” she said.
