COVID-19 Vaccine

The vaccines are working!

While cases have been climbing with the Delta variant, the vast majority of individuals who are hospitalized or dying are unvaccinated. Although you can still contract COVID-19 if you are vaccinated, you are less likely to contract it and you will be protected from serious illness and death. 

All Oregonians over the age of 12 are eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine.  

Doctor

The vaccines were developed by health and medical experts to safely reduce your risk of infection and severe illness.

DNA

Flexing muscle

All of the available vaccines provide strong protection against severe disease and hospitalization.

It’s true the COVID vaccine was developed faster than any vaccine in history. This was possible because the research and development relied on previous science and research and because the multiple steps of vaccine development were done simultaneously instead of sequentially. No safety steps were skipped. Adverse effects of vaccine are seen within the first 6 weeks of receiving the vaccine, millions of people have received the vaccine over several months. The safety of the COVID vaccine is well scrutinized. FDA approval is pending long term effectiveness data not safety data.

The COVID-19 vaccines prepare your immune system with instructions to fight the virus if you are exposed, it does not prevent you from exposure. The Delta variant is much more contagious and creates a large viral load in the nose and throat. Vaccinations help people quickly fight the virus, so they may be contagious for a shorter period of time and they help fight the virus before it enters the lungs and prevents severe illness. The more people who are vaccinated, the less chance the virus has to survive because people’s immune systems will be able to respond accordingly and symptoms will be less severe. The high viral load of the Delta variant is staying in people’s nose and throat is why CDC/ public health are recommending wearing masks, as they limit the spread.

There has been a lot of mis-information about this, but there is no scientific evidence of impact on fertility. None of the vaccines cause any fertility problems.

86376

Third doses of Pfizer or Moderna are now recommended for people severely or moderately immunocompromised. Please contact your primary care provider to determine your eligibility to receive a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine and to schedule your third dose appointment. At this time Clackamas County Public Health vaccination clinics will not be able to verify third dose eligibility or administer third dose of COVID-19 vaccine at our clinics. Boosters are not yet authorized for anyone else. Please check back on our website for updates on when we may be able to make third dose appointments available.
