Vaccine Distribution In Oregon

 

While the news of a COVID-19 vaccine is hopeful, we are still a long way from COVID-19 being over.

Oregon Health Authority is distributing the vaccine in phases to make sure the vaccine is first provided to critical health care workers who work with COVID-19 patients. Oregon Health Authority has created a COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Committee to help the vaccine be distributed equitably.

Vaccinations in Benton County

Please Note: the COVID-19 Vaccine Survey is not currently available to the General Population

COVID-19 vaccinations are underway in Benton County due to a partnership between Samaritan Health Services and Benton County Health Department. Distribution of the vaccine and vaccination clinics will be planned following CDC and OHA prioritization guidelines. Community members should note that while prioritization guidance may be updated to include more people over time, the County’s ability to distribute vaccinations and hold vaccination events may be limited by current vaccine supplies. Limited vaccine supply may mean that vaccines are being prioritized for those in early phases, even when guidance indicates that a broader population could be receiving vaccines.

Vaccine Assessment Survey

  • Individuals who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine at this time must complete Benton County’s vaccine assessment survey in order to schedule their vaccination appointment. Please note: the vaccine for COVID-19 is not currently available for the general public.
  • Benton County Health Department will prioritize submissions following OHA criteria, then send a scheduler link with instructions to schedule appointments for both the first and second dose.
