On April 19 the state of Oregon is opening its eligibility for COVID-19 vaccinations to everyone age 16 and up. The rush is on to get vaccine in every willing arm at levels high enough to ensure herd immunity. Please consider reading PSA’s and/or news items to encourage everyone to begin signing up for clinics? Samaritan Health Services is hosting community vaccination clinics at the Center for Health Education in Newport every Friday and Saturday, and at the Samaritan Medical Plaza in Lincoln City every Saturday until the need is met.
Go to samhealth.org/COVIDVaccine for complete information including registration links. Those who need assistance with the process can call 855-441-2311.
