Starting today, the Tower Mall vaccination site in Vancouver will operate until 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays.

The site, 5403 E. Mill Plain Blvd., in central Vancouver, is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays, and 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays. It closes from noon to 1 p.m. each day and from 5 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays. Tower Mall offers drive-thru and walk-up vaccination options, and is accessible by C-TRAN bus route 37.

Pfizer vaccine is administered at Tower Mall; anyone age 16 and older can get vaccinated, according to a Clark County Public Health news release.

The site offers appointments, which are added weekly, and also provides vaccinations to those without appointments, but priority will be given to those with appointments, which can be booked here.

Everyone vaccinated at the Tower Mall site is automatically scheduled for a second dose at the site three weeks later, according to Public Health. Consent forms are needed for each appointment and are available on the Public Health website.

Public Health will also be hosting vaccination events in Woodland and the Fruit Valley area of Vancouver over the next two weeks.

The first clinic will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Woodland High School, 1500 Dike Access Road, and will offer the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. About 1,000 appointments are available.

Johnson & Johnson vaccine is available for people 18 years and older and requires only one dose. The Pfizer vaccine is available for people 16 years and older and requires two doses. Second doses will be provided for everyone who receives a first dose at Woodland High School on June 5.

Public Health also has appointments for more than 400 doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine at Fruit Valley Community Learning Center, 3410 N.W. Fruit Valley Road, on May 15. Appointments are available 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and can be scheduled online or by calling Public Health at 888-225-4625.
