The beautiful facility that is the Hillsboro Stadium has been used for so many purposes over the years. Now the big facility has taken up the charge to be a COVID 19 vaccination site. It happens just as things begin to open up around the Region for businesses and eateries. Things are looking up! It has taken a while to get a good vaccination location going out on the Westside and we have heard from a few readers that they have made trips to locations around the NW to get their shots. Based on the number of cars we saw at the stadium yesterday things are in full swing on Century Blvd!
The City tweeted this message today:
TODAY at 9 am, new vaccine appointments will be released for seniors over 65, caregivers, and individuals with disabilities at the PDX Airport drive-through site for appointments on March 20-21.
