Keep your vaccination card safe
At your vaccination appointment you should get a vaccination card that tells you what COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it.
If you’re fully vaccinated, you may be able to enter some indoor places without wearing a mask, but only if you show them your vaccination card. Here are some tips about your vaccination card:
- Keep your vaccination card in a safe place.
- Take a picture of your vaccination card as a backup copy.
- Don’t laminate your card in case another shot may need to be added to it.
- Keep your card in a waterproof container.
- Don’t share your card on social media unless you cover your personal information.

- Limit exposure to the sun from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. when UV rays are strongest.

- Avoid hot foods and heavy meals.
- Drink plenty of fluids.
- Avoid alcohol or liquids containing large amounts of sugar.
Updated county risk levels take effect Friday, June 4
Governor Kate Brown today announced updates to county risk levels under the state’s public health framework to reduce transmission and protect Oregonians from COVID-19. Effective Friday, June 4, through Thursday, June 10, there will be 13 counties in the High Risk level, 4 at Moderate Risk and 19 at Lower Risk. A complete list of counties and their associated risk levels is available here.
“Thanks to all the Oregonians who have been vaccinated so far, Oregon’s case rates have continued to decline, said Governor Brown. “But, COVID-19 remains a serious threat to unvaccinated individuals and communities with low vaccination rates. If you have been waiting to get vaccinated, go get your shot today. It’s never been easier to get vaccinated, and you may just win $1 million through the Take Your Shot, Oregon campaign.”
