PHOTOS: Mass vaccinations begin at Seattle's Lumen Field
Seattle's mass vaccination site opened Saturday, March 13 at Lumen Field Event Center.
It's the largest civilian-run vaccination site in the country, according to the mayor's office.
“We are going to vaccinate Washingtonians like crazy at Lumen Field,” Governor Jay Inslee said, during a press conference on Wednesday. “You give us the doses, Mr. President — we’ll give you the vaccinations.”
The site will initially vaccinate around 5,000 people each week. The site could vaccinate 22,000 people per day, at full capacity, if supply is available.
President Biden has promised that Covid vaccines will be available to every American adult by the end of May.
If the Lumen Field site gets enough doses to operate at full capacity, it could give vaccines to nearly a third of King County residents in just a month.
