COVID-19 Vaccinations - Josephine County
Latest Information Josephine County Public Health is currently working to schedule future COVID-19 mass vaccination clinics. Specifics will depend on ensuring Oregon National Guard support and assurance of vaccine availability.
Facts About COVID-19 Vaccines Josephine County Public Health is not creating a "wait list" for COVID-19 vaccinations Vaccination is the best way to keep yourself, your family and your community healthy COVID-19 vaccines are 95% effective and have undergone rigorous safety testing People who are most affected by the COVID-19 virus will have first access to the vaccination In Oregon, that will be frontline health care workers who are exposed to the virus in their work and residents of long-term care facilities Learn more about Oregon's distribution plan here https://covidvaccine.oregon.gov/
Vaccination gives us hope that the pandemic will end, but in the meantime, we need to continue safety measures to keep the virus from spreading:
Wear a mask Physically distance from others Wash your hands Avoid gatherings Stay home when you’re sick
It will take time to distribute the vaccines. It will be months before a COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone. It will take time to make enough vaccines and distribute them in our communities.
COVID-19 vaccines will be given in phases determined by the Oregon Health Authority.
