The clinic hopes to vaccinate up to 800 people there each week with the assistance of volunteers from the medical community who will be administering the vaccine.
The Community Center for the Performing Arts said that they are providing WOW Hall below cost because it is the best way that they can use their facility during the pandemic.
"A few of us said, 'Wow, wouldn't it be great if we can open up the hall for vaccinations?' A couple of months later, White Bird Clinic contacts us and we say, 'That is exactly what we would like to do.' This is a community center," said CCPA Board of Directors member Nancy Forrest.
According to White Bird, WOW Hall's central downtown location and accessible indoor space make it perfect for vaccination events. The CCPA said the clinics align perfectly with their own mission of being a community center.
"Universal vaccination is going to bring the day sooner that we can bring back community events again and opening our doors. So everything we do is kind of the same effort," said Chico Schwall, who is also a member of the CCPA Board of Directors. "This chance to partner with White Bird is a unique opportunity and a great one. White Bird is one of the few community organizations older than the community center for the performing arts."
White Bird Clinic has already been operating vaccination clinics out of WOW Hall for about a month for Phase 1a workers but is opening them up to all eligible community members on Monday.
Vaccinations will be given out by appointment only. An online scheduler will be available on White Bird Clinic's website starting on Monday.
They ask that interested parties not contact their main office or medical clinic with questions.
