In Spokane, these planned vaccination clinics are postponed, according to the Spokane Regional Health District: Nov. 2 (West Central Community Center, St. Anne’s); Nov. 3 (Spokane Valley Partners, Farwell Elementary); Nov. 4 (Airway Heights Community Center).

In North Idaho, the Panhandle Health District has postponed school vaccinations scheduled for this week. Vaccinations in 15 schools with elementary-age students in Idaho’s five northern counties will resume Nov. 9 and 10, the health district said.
