Coupeville Farmers Market to host pop-up vaccine clinic

The Coupeville Farmers Market is partnering with the town of Coupeville and Island County Public Health to provide a pop-up vaccine clinic Saturday, June 5.

The clinic will be at the market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.. Mayor Molly Hughes said at a Coupeville Town Council meeting May 25 that the county will provide both the vaccines and people to administer them.

“We’re trying to really have no excuse for everybody in Coupeville not to be vaccinated,” she said.

Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines will be available. Market manager Maureen Rice said she does not know yet whether they will be able to offer a second clinic for those who receive the Moderna vaccine to get their second dose, but the market is willing if the health department is.

Rice said the market is still accepting vendor applications, as well. Email for more information.
