In case getting vaccinated wasn’t enticing enough, Seattle and King County will be adding a festival-like feature to each vaccination site.
Partnering with 4Culture, an organization that provides funding and support for cultural work in King County, the updated “Vax To The Future” sites will include live music, “I got vaccinated” buttons designed by local artists, as well as a photobooth for people to take selfies.
The “Vax To The Future” sites will begin on May 14.
We’re excited to partner w/ @4Culture to launch a new pilot program at vaccination sites: **𝗩𝗮𝘅 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗙𝘂𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲**#VaxToTheFuture will bring art to COVID-19 vaccination sites throughout the county to enhance the experience of getting vaccinated. 🎨🎷🎶 pic.twitter.com/OSt6KhGQ4B
