Efforts continue in the Yakima Valley to get the COVID-19 vaccine to as many people as possible through the drive-thru site at Yakima's State Fair Park mobile units and clinics. If you are looking for a COVID-19 vaccine Yakima Valley Memorial is holding a free community vaccination clinic open to everyone on Saturday, April 10 in Tieton. The clinic will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or until the vaccine runs out, at the Mighty Tieton Warehouse located at 608 Wisconsin Road. Officials say 500 Moderna doses are available. If you are looking for a second dose of the vaccine those are available as well. You'll need proof of your first vaccine. No preregistration is needed and no identification is required. All the precautions will be in place including the requirement for masks.
Free COVID-19 testing will also be available at the site in Tieton on Saturday.
