PULLMAN - As of Tuesday, February 23, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories have hosted 10 mass vaccination clinics in both Lewiston and Pullman that has led to the distribution of about 5,700 vaccine doses, Vice President of Security Frank Harrill said in the latest edition of AWB’s “Capitol Focus.”
The company’s founder Dr. Ed Schweitzer has long ingrained in every employee the need to be a partner in the community and bring the company’s technical expertise when it’s needed most.
“That’s really what we did here. It was a call to action,” Harrill said. “It’s something that needs to be done in a public-private way across the U.S. We saw the need and we filled it.”
The clinics have been hosted in Pullman and Lewiston. The reaction from employees and the community has been one of gratitude, and gratification, Harrill said.
Another large-scale COVID-19 vaccine clinic will be held this Friday, February 26, at the Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories facility located at 2821 Juniper Drive, in Lewiston. The clinic will be held from 8:30am - 3:00pm.
The clinic is by appointment only. Those eligible to receive the vaccine can call 509-592-4784 to schedule an appointment.
