5,500 and Counting Vaccinated Against COVID-19 Through Business Health Trust Partnership

Business Health Trust is taking its core value to be a resource to employers throughout the Puget Sound region with COVID-19 vaccine clinics that so far have immunized 5,500 people and counting.

The clinics are being offered through a unique partnership between local grocery stores and business organizations, including Business Health Trust and its plan sponsor, the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce.

Each event needs about 50 to 60 volunteers to keep patients safely flowing through the pop-up vaccine clinics, and Business Health Trust members are among volunteers who have been willing to step up and help.

We first wrote about the clinics in the post Business Health Trust Partnership Provides COVID-19 Vaccine to Diverse Population, which highlighted a clinic in the White Center neighborhood where the diverse population has seen one of the highest rates of COVID-19 incidence in King County.

Since then clinics have taken place in Bellevue, Tacoma and Everett, with more likely as eligibility for the vaccine expands to all Washingtonians 16 and older as of April 15, 2021.

If you would like to be notified about future COVID-19 vaccine clinics as a patient or to volunteer, or if your company is interested in partnering, please fill out this survey.
