JOSEPHINE COUNTY, Ore. — Josephine County Public Health, with the support of several partner organizations from throughout the community, will host a second-dose COVID-19 vaccine clinic 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 14-15 at the Josephine County Fairgrounds.
This clinic will be primarily for those who are ready for their second dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine (the Pfizer vaccine requires a three-week wait before the second dose is administered, while the Moderna vaccine requires a four-week wait). Those in Phase 1a and teachers and school staff members serving students pre-kindergarten through 12th grade who have not yet received their first dose of a vaccine are also eligible for this clinic. Registration is available at https://www.asante.org/covid-19/vaccination-events/#Josephine-County.
Due to limited supplies, those in other eligibility groups, including childcare providers and older adults, will not be vaccinated during this clinic. JCPH is looking for further opportunities to provide vaccines to these individuals.
Participants will be required to bring their CDC COVID-19 Vaccine Record card to the vaccine clinic. Those who do not bring their card can expect significant delays.
An additional clinic for those needing a second dose of the Moderna vaccine is being developed. Details for that clinic will be announced at a later date.
Those who have had immediate allergic reactions of any severity to food, drug injections or insect stings should not attend these clinics and should contact their primary care provider.
Additional information will be posted to http://www.co.josephine.or.us/Page.asp?NavID=2288 as it becomes available.
