OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) – A federal mass vaccination site will be set up at Central Washington State Fair Park in Yakima, in addition to mobile vaccination units.

The White House announced Monday that 1,200 doses a day are expected to be administered over a six-week period starting on March 31.

The additional vaccine doses will be provided directly by the federal government and will not be taken from the state or county’s regular allotments.

To date in Washington state, more than 2.6 million doses of vaccine have been administered, and over 12% of the state’s population has been fully vaccinated.
