Omicron Virus update in Oregon

The time is now: Get boosted to protect against “January Omicron Surge” – Gov. Brown

Governor Brown, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) leadership shared information about the latest projection about the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon due to the new Omicron variant.

“I know that bracing for a new variant as we head into our second pandemic holiday season is not what we all hoped for,” Governor Brown said. “If you take one thing away from today’s press conference, let it be this: Get your booster shot. Boosters work and are incredibly effective at continuing your protection against this virus and hospitalization.”

You can find first, second, third and booster doses at Oregon’s high-volume vaccination sites. You can also find other vaccine locations near you. Or contact your doctor’s office for a COVID-19 vaccination or booster.

Pfizer and Moderna vaccines now recommended over Johnson & Johnson

The Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup has confirmed its support of the recommendation that people 18 and older receive an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine over Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine, given the greater effectiveness and stronger safety profile of mRNA vaccines.

The new guidance also recommends that anyone who had a Johnson & Johnson vaccine as their first dose should get an mRNA vaccine as the booster dose. However, people who are aware of the new guidance can still request a Johnson & Johnson vaccine if they want one.
