NEWPORT, Ore. – Lincoln County Public Health is closing the Lincoln County Commons (Fairgrounds) clinic after its last clinic on Thursday, May 27th. This clinic has vaccinated thousands of people, helping Lincoln County reach a permanent low-risk status by having over 65% of its eligible population vaccinated.
We could not have run these clinics so successfully without sustained help, support and partnerships of various local healthcare providers, schools, first responders, and over 350 local volunteers. Even though this vaccination site is ending, the COVID-19 vaccine will still be available in many locations. Samaritan – in both Lincoln City and Newport – and Taft Fire Station are still holding weekly clinics. Almost all pharmacies are carrying vaccines, public health is coordinating many mobile outreach clinics, and local healthcare providers are planning to provide vaccinations in primary care and urgent care clinics.
Lincoln County’s vaccination website will continue to be updated with vaccination resources –https://www.co.lincoln.or.us/hhs/page/covid-19-vaccination-clinics and the Call Center is available to answer any question you might have and assist you in getting set up for a COVID vaccine. Don’t hesitate to call at 541-265-0621.
Lincoln County has also added information about the new guidelines for masks, the fully vaccinated, and business guidance. Links to these resources can be found on the county’s main COVID-19 website here: co.lincoln.or.us/COVID
