Snoqualmie Tribe Vaccine Partnership to Supply Vaccines for Eligible Eastside Residents Living on Snoqualmie Tribal Ancestral Lands

The cities of Issaquah and Sammamish with Eastside Fire & Rescue worked together to bring COVID-19 vaccinations to East King County residents. The establishment of the first community-based mass vaccination site on the Eastside was made possible through a partnership with the Snoqualmie Tribe. As a sovereign nation, the Snoqualmie Tribe provided the vaccines necessary to turn the planned mass vaccination site at Lake Sammamish State Park into a reality. The mass vaccination, named the Snoqualmie Tribe Vaccine Partnership, opened on April 12, 2021. The site was administered by Eastside Fire & Rescue personnel and trained volunteers who followed all COVID-19 guidelines and protocols. 

These are unprecedented times, we at Eastside Fire & Rescue are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our community and our employees. To adhere to Public Health recommendations, EF&R will be suspending public education events, CPR/First Aid classes, station tours, and the use of public meeting rooms for the remainder of the year.   While closed to the public, EF&R team members will still be available to serve your non-emergent needs, simply contact
