This Is Our Shot to Strike Out COVID-19
UW Medicine and the Seattle Mariners are partnering together to help strike out the coronavirus. We are committed to making it easier for people to get vaccinated through community outreach and mobile vaccination efforts.
A home run for our community
Vaccines are free.
The federal government is providing the vaccine free of charge to all people living in the United States, regardless of their immigration or health insurance status.
Vaccines work and are safe.
All COVID-19 vaccines available now are 100% effective at preventing hospitalizations and death. Millions of people have already received their shots under the largest safety monitoring in U.S. history. Most side effects have been mild to moderate.
Vaccines will help end the pandemic.
If we do our part by getting our shots, we could get back to the things we love to do by the end of the summer. Until then, keep up the good work and wear your mask.
A winning team
The Seattle region saved lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. We had fewer deaths per capita than any other large metropolitan area. Why?
Because we worked as a team. We kept each other safe by following pandemic safety guidelines. Until we strike out COVID-19, let’s keep up the good work so everyone can get back to the ballpark.

About the campaign
UW Medicine and the Seattle Mariners are partnering to help COVID-19 vaccines reach communities in our region that have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic and historically marginalized by healthcare systems.
In addition to the mobile vaccination program, the partnership includes an awareness campaign featuring Mariners players and team personnel.
As part of this partnership, the Mariners will provide $2 million in funding to support community outreach strategies and mobile vaccination efforts that are based primarily at Harborview Medical Center.
