Covid-19 Vaccine Information

Vaccine Drive-Thru Community Clinics


People who are eligible can receive free COVID-19 vaccine at one of two drive-thru community events. The clinics—which are available by appointment only—are a partnership of MultiCare Health System, Pierce County Department of Emergency Management, Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, and Virginia Mason Franciscan Health. More COVID-19 vaccine availability means more hope to end the pandemic in Pierce County. 

Many residents are eager for their turn to get vaccinated. Vaccine supplies remain limited, which is why Washington State Department of Health developed a phased approach to prioritize those who are most at risk for COVID-19. Vaccination for the general public is still months away and may not start until the second quarter.  

If Phase Finder determines you’re eligible for vaccine at this time, you must make an appointment using the links below. Walk-ins are not available.

About the clinics. 

  • Receive vaccine while you remain in your car. 
  • Schedule your second dose appointment when you receive your first.

Each clinic will have approximately 1,500 appointments available. Clinic locations are based on ease of access and the ability to serve large numbers of people who are currently eligible to receive vaccine, including those disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
