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. 

Keep in mind: 

  • All of the available vaccines provide strong protection against severe disease and hospitalization.
  • The vaccines were developed by health and medical experts to safely reduce your risk of infection and severe illness.
  • All Oregonians over the age of 5 are eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • All Oregonians over the age of 18 are eligible to get a COVID-19 booster.
  • None of the vaccines contain live virus and they cannot change your DNA.

Vaccine Clinics

Appointments are now required. To schedule an appointment at any of the below clinics, register online.

  • Boosters are approved for anyone 18 and over, and mix and match is available for scheduled appointments at clinics.
  • Pfizer/Comirnaty Pediatric Vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11 is available to schedule vaccine appointments at regular clinics. If you don’t see “Pfizer Pediatric Vaccine” as an option on the scheduler then the appointments are all full.  We will update the scheduler when appointments become available. 
  • Pfizer Pediatric Vaccine – there is more demand than available appointments at this time. Please be patient and check the scheduler weekly for clinics that have available appointments. It may take a few weeks to get an appointment.
  • Special accommodations are available for people with sensory needs and/or physical, mental or intellectual disabilities.

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.

The Vaccine and Pregnancy

If you are pregnant, have recently given birth or might become pregnant in the future, the CDC strongly recommends you get a COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccines are safe, and they reduce your chances of getting severe COVID-19. Plus, the antibodies you make may offer protection for your baby! 

Vaccine Hesitancy

Still on the fence about COVID-19 vaccinations? You’re not alone. It is normal to have questions and concerns about a new vaccine. Fears about the speed of FDA vaccine approvals and vaccine safety abound on social media. We understand some of you are reluctant because you care about your family’s safety.

Here’s what we do know:

Your specific questions and fears are best addressed by your trusted health care provider.
