Lane County Vaccine Newsletter -March

Many pharmacies in Lane County are receiving vaccine supply directly from the federal government in addition to state & local distribution.

Some eligible persons have had success registering with a pharmacy in addition to preregistration with Lane County.

Federally Qualified Health Centers in Lane County have few begun to receive vaccine supplies 

Community Health Centers of Lane County
White Bird Clinic

The Federal Health Service Administrations Health Center COVID-19 Vaccine Program is designed to ensure our nation’s underserved communities and those disproportionately affected by COVID-19 are equitably vaccinated against COVID-19 by allocating a limited supply of vaccine doses directly to health centers. 

Please remember that there is only enough vaccine supply to vaccinate a small portion of eligible residents each week.  Lane County will continue vaccinating as quickly as vaccine supply allows. 

All individuals in Lane County are encouraged to utilize the Vaccine Preregistration Form to ensure they are contacted for scheduling as early as possible.  Although you may not receive an appointment until summer, this is the best way to claim a spot for your shot.

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.
