“We heard from our partners at Kitsap Public Health and PCHS that they wanted to accelerate efforts to vaccinate the community against COVID-19,” said John Clauson, executive director of Kitsap Transit. “We realized we could accommodate a mass-vaccination clinic at our Gateway Center, and we’re proud to join forces to stop the spread of COVID-19.”
