Tonight’s local pandemic notes:
VACCINATION HUB’S LAST DAY TOMORROW: As first reported here three weeks ago, the city is closing its West Seattle vaccination hub after tomorrow. Lots of other places to get vaccinated, of course, but this has been been the only all-vaccinations-all-the-time center in our area. All three vaccines are offered, 9 am until at least 4 pm, 2801 SW Thistle.
ALSO TOMORROW – TWO BRIEFINGS: State health officials will have their weekly briefing at 8:15 am (livestream here); Gov. Inslee plans a briefing at 3:30 pm (livestream here), partly about the pandemic, partly to talk about new leadership at the state Employment Security Department.
