April 19, 2021 Updated Mon., April 19, 2021 at 10:12 p.m.

Providence Health is partnering with Gonzaga University to host vaccine clinics once a week on campus starting Thursday.

The clinic is open to all community members 16 and older, and you can sign up for appointments online.

This week, the Providence-Gonzaga clinic is offering the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and appointments are available from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

The clinic is located at the Martin Center Field House; future clinics will be on Thursdays through May as long as demand remains.

There are multiple providers offering COVID-19 vaccines in Spokane County. To find an appointment, visit the state’s vaccine locator or call (800) 525-0127, then press the pound key (#).

Current data shows that about 30% of residents in Spokane County have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 21% of the population has been fully vaccinated.
