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.
