Port of Grays Harbor Partners on COVID-19 Vaccination Site

The Port of Grays Harbor has teamed up with county health, hospital and community members to establish a site for administering COVID-19 vaccinations to residents beginning this week.

The port collaborated for weeks with the Grays Harbor County Public Health COVID-19 Incident Management Team, Grays Harbor Community Hospital and the U.S. Coast Guard to secure a site within the seaport complex.

Vaccinations are being offered only by appointment only and prioritizes county residents who fall under Phase 1A and Phase 1B Tier 1 of the Washington State Department of Health’s Vaccination Distribution Plan such as high risk health care workers, first responders, those ages 65 and older and residents 50 years and older who are part of multigenerational households, the port said.

“The port is honored to partner with our local emergency management and health officials to provide a site for mass vaccinations for our community,” Port Commission President Stan Pinnick said. “We applaud and thank all our staff and the many partners that have helped make this possible for the community.”
