COVID-19 Vaccine

When can I get vaccinated? How do I get vaccinated?

Because of limited supply, only certain groups of people can get vaccinated right now. First responders, healthcare workers, school employees, childcare workers, and individuals 75 and older are being vaccinated. For more information about who is eligible to receive the vaccine and what groups will become eligible next, read Oregon’s vaccine sequencing plan or visit
