How Do I Get Vaccinated?

This information can change. Please double check resources and continue to monitor them for up to date information.

We are currently vaccinating people in Phase 1a and Phase 1B Groups 1-5. Please be aware that eligibility and availability are two different things.  The federal government is working to ramp up vaccine production and hopes to increase state allocations in the near future.  The Oregon Health Authority has launched a new Get Vaccinated Oregon tool which will tell you your eligibility, alert you when you become eligible and work to connect you with providers once you are eligible.  Please click "Eligibility" to create an account.
Currently Eligible:
Phase 1a:
  • Health care workers and first responders
  • Long-term care facilities

Phase 1b Groups 1-7:

  • Childcare providers, early learning and K-12 educators and staff
  • People 65 and older
  • Frontline workers as defined by the CDC
  • Adults 16-64 with one or more underlying health conditions with increased risk
  • Individuals experiencing houselessness
  • Pregnant people age 16 and older
  • Individuals living in a multigenerational household

 

 

 
 
 
Upcoming Vaccination Phases:
Phase 2: eligibility opens statewide on April 19th, 2021


The expectation is that we will have the over 65 community vaccinated by sometime in April based on vaccine supply. See Oregon Health Authority's vaccine sequencing plan.  Text "ORCOVID" to 898211 to receive text alerts when changes to vaccination eligibility occur. 
The Vaccine Advisory Committee has submitted recommendations to Governor Kate Brown regarding the next phases of vaccination which include considerations for people 16-64 with underlying conditions, essential workers, older adults under 65 and a focus on BIPOC communities.  These are recommendations and it remains up to the Governor and her many advisory committees to determine the parameters and timelines of upcoming phases. 

Vaccination Updates and Info By County *not all counties have designated vaccination pages yet:

Pharmacies in Oregon may soon be rolling out vaccine clinics.  This roll out is a federal response to the pandemic, but should follow state guidelines for eligibility. We do not yet know which pharmacy locations will have vaccine access, what their supply will look like or when they will begin vaccinating.  Some pharmacies have begun creating online appointment tools such as Fred Meyer, Safeway, Walgreens, HealthMart, and Costco.

 

Vaccines for 65+ in the Portland Metro Area:

  • Eligible older adults who live in Clackamas, Columbia, Multnomah or Washington counties who registered for a vaccine through the Get Vaccinated Oregon (GVO) tool will receive an advance email from OHA indicating they will be receiving email notification from All4Oregon inviting them to make an appointment at OCC. 
  • That message from OHA will be followed by an email from All4Oregon that contains a unique individualized link that connects to the All4Oregon scheduling site with open dates and times for vaccines available the next week. This link will expire if not used within five days. 
  • OHA will allocate 15,000 vaccines a week, about 50% more vaccines, for the next three weeks to All4Oregon to vaccinate adults 65+ in Clackamas, Columbia, Multnomah and Washington counties.
  • If you live in another part of the state and are 65 or older you can also use the Get Vaccinated Oregon tool to register for notifications and find information about vaccination events in your area. Locations and steps to get vaccinated will differ from county to county.
