SPOKANE, Wash. — The City of Spokane is holding two pop-up vaccine clinics this week at Riverfront Park with food, beverages and free roller skate and scooter rentals.

The first clinic will be at the Riverfront Spring Market on Wednesday, May 12 from 3–7 p.m., and the second will be at the Numerica Skate Ribbon on Friday from 3–7 p.m., as well.

Wednesday marks the last day of the Spring Farmer’s Market at the Pavilion.

Folks who show up at the Skate Ribbon on Friday will be treated to a happy hour event with food and beverage specials, as well as free roller skate and scooter rentals for those who get vaccinated.

“Our community partners have really stepped up to help us make it as easy and attractive as possible for people to get a vaccine,” said Mayor Nadine Woodward. “It is taking a community effort to keep us moving forward and Spokane continues to respond. Our emphasis has been on those under 40, but these events are open to any adults.”

The Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine will be administered.

Spokane Parks & Rec says these clinics were made possible through a partnership with Safeway/Albertsons and the Washington State Department of Health.
