 “Our community partners have really stepped up to help us make it as easy and attractive as possible for people to get a vaccine,” Mayor Nadine Woodward said. “It is taking a community effort to keep us moving forward and Spokane continues to respond. Our emphasis has been on those under 40, but these events are open to any adults.”
