COVID Vaccination Information
Covid vaccinations are now becoming available. Pretty much all major Health Care groups and Hospitals are, or soon will be, offering vaccinations by appointment. The Oregon Health Authority has set up a website with up-to-date information on vaccine availability, and how to register for an appointment.
Also, according to the Oregonian (Feb 3), select Oregon pharmacies will receive coronavirus vaccines starting next week. Although it will take some time for pharmacies to have enough vaccine for everyone.
Please be sure to share this information with anyone you know who does not have access to the website. Also, let us know if you find any of this information is incomplete or incorrect.
