We know you may have many questions about the COVID-19 vaccine – here are the top 3 things to know right now:
1) We have submitted our application to the Oregon Health Authority to distribute the vaccine. Once we receive the vaccine our goal is to vaccinate our patients as soon as you are eligible. We will contact you as soon as we have more info about who is eligible, when you can schedule, and where vaccines will be given.
2) Health care workers, essential workers and high-risk patients will be eligible for the vaccine first, since there will be a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines available initially. Then, other adults will be eligible. Finally, children will be eligible – early clinical trials did not include kids, so the vaccine will be made available to children when it is shown to be safe and effective.
3) The safety of COVID-19 vaccines is a top priority, and there are many reasons to get vaccinated including protecting you and your loved ones from getting COVID-19.
Do not contact our office to schedule a vaccine appointment at this time. We will send updates as we receive information and look forward to seeing you soon!
