COVID-19 vaccinations are available at the Jackson County Expo with both walk-thru and drive-thru clinics. The clinics are open to everyone over 16 years of age and vaccinations will be provided free of charge. No proof of residency or insurance will be required. Language interpreters and support for disabilities are available for those who need the services. Masks and social distancing will be required when getting vaccinated at the site.
Appointments can be made by going to JacksonCounty.org/GetVaccinated (English) or JacksonCounty.org/vacunate (Spanish) or by calling 211. The City's role is to relay information from Jackson County, but is not directly involved in the vaccination clinic. Any questions or concerns should be directed to Jackson County by using the links and phone number above.
Governor Brown also launched a new tool called Get Vaccinated Oregon on the State's designated vaccination website: covidvaccine.oregon.gov. This tool will help people determine eligibility and to sign up for email alerts and/or text notifications for when they will be eligible to get the vaccine. You can also call 211 for more information on the vaccination schedules and availability.
Wear a Mask
Face coverings are required for indoor public spaces and outdoor public spaces when physical distancing is not possible. This is effective statewide per order of the Governor. Children under 5 years of age as well as people with a disability or a medical condition that prevent them from wearing a face covering are not required to wear one. For more information, go to the Governor's website.
The Oregon Health Authority has compiled the various locations to get tested. People who are experiencing fever, cough, shortness of breath and other COVID-19 symptoms should contact their health care provider or call 211 if they do not have one. Once it is established that testing should be administered, follow instructions from your health care provider or go to healthoregon.org/covid19testing to find testing centers in your area or call 211. For Spanish, go to healthoregon.org/pruebasdecovid19.
