TOPPENISH, Wash. — Are you a healthcare or childcare worker in the Lower Valley looking to receive your COVID-19 vaccination? This weekend, you can visit the COVID-19 vaccination clinic set up at Toppenish Middle School to inoculate yourself against coronavirus.

One of the largest healthcare networks in Eastern Washington, Astria Health, will provide COVID-19 vaccinations for eligible participants on Friday, March 5. Operating out of the middle school at 104 Goldendale Ave., the vaccine clinic will operate on Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. or until supplies run out.

Officials at the site confirm that they’re offering the Pfizer/BioNTech version of the vaccine. It’s a first-come, first-serve clinic for eligible participants through guidelines from the Washington Department of Health (DOH). If you’re not in Phase 1A and Phase 1B-Tier 1 of vaccinations, you will not be eligible to participate in this event.

  • All other workers at risk in health care settings
  • All people 65+ years or older
