If you are unsure of your eligibility, please see the state of Oregon’s Vaccine Eligibility tool at COVID19 Vaccine in Oregon and the Oregon Health Authority Vaccine Eligibility table
You must be eligible under current Oregon Health Authority guidelines to schedule an appointment. See above for current eligibility and links to OHA eligibility guidance.
Anyone who is currently eligible can schedule their first or second dose by going to www.lanecounty.org/vaxclinics and clicking on “Schedule a Vaccine Appointment.” You do not need to preregister, update preregistration or wait for an invitation email to schedule an appointment. You DO need to have a scheduled appointment to attend one of the Lane County vaccination clinics.
This webpage also has details on each of the clinic locations, what to expect and what to bring: www.lanecounty.org/vaxclinics
Please call 541-682-1380 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance scheduling an appointment. (Las personas que llaman en español tienen la opción de dejar un recado.)
If you got your first dose at a LCPH mass vaccine clinic, we will also take care of your second dose and you are not competing against others trying to schedule their first doses. You can use the same link to schedule a vaccine appointment to schedule your second dose and you do not need to wait for an email. In addition we will continue to send emails and make phone calls to those needing second doses.
When you first try to schedule appointment dates may not be available far enough out for you to scheduled in your second dose window. Please check the link closer to the start of your second dose window to schedule as we continue to add clinics dates. Lane County will not administer 2nd doses any earlier that the start of the second dose window.
- Pfizer second dose window is 21-42 days after your first dose
- Moderna second dose window is 28-42 days after your first dose.
If you have not been able to schedule your 2nd dose by 36 days after your first dose please contact Lane County Public Health at 541-682-1380 or email@example.com for assistance with scheduling before the end of the second dose window.

What exactly is equity and what does it have to do with you?
Equity means giving people access to the things that they need in order to be successful. It’s different from equality because equality means everyone having the same experience.
When we talk about COVID-19, we see inequities. We see communities of color experiencing higher rates of the disease and death due to the disease as well as lower rates of vaccinations. Here are some examples:
- According to the Oregon Health Authority, 26% of COVID-19 cases in the state are Latino. But Latinos only make up 13% of the overall population in Oregon.
- Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders are dying at 17 times the rate of white people
- Latinx and Black people are dying at a 3.5 times the rate of white people
- Native Americans are dying at 2.4 times the rate of white people
- The life expectancy of Black people declined by three years (from 75 to 72 years) in 2020
This can be for a whole host of reasons.
To ensure that communities that are most impacted by COVID-19 – specifically communities of color, people who are unhoused, and seniors with disabilities – have access to the vaccine as quickly as possible, Lane County Public Health are working to meet communities where they are through these tailored strategies:
- Lane County Public Health is partnering with Community Based Organizations to hold smaller clinics for the people that those organizations serve.
- Lane County Public Health piloted a is partnering with Community Based Organizations to get eligible members of the populations that they serve signed up to receive a vaccination.
Grassroots community organizers have been hard at work throughout this pandemic supporting their communities and that work should not go unnoticed. Some of the Community Based Organizations we want to acknowledge are Latinx Alliance, ARC of Lane County, NAACP of Springfield and Eugene, HIV Alliance, and Centro Latino Americano, and Senior and Disability Services.
We would like to show support to these community organizers (organizations) while honoring and addressing that our diverse communities are part of the fabric that makes Lane County such a great place to learn, grow, and thrive.

The data reported is direct from Oregon Health Authority’s database, current to the time it was pulled. Since the data is constantly being updated, numbers can vary. Total vaccinations refers to doses, while persons vaccinated is referring to the people who received doses. There is sometimes a delay in reporting of doses administered (meaning the vials of vaccine have been distributed) and the connection to the persons who received it. The percentage of fully vaccinated does refer to those who have received both doses.
