On April 6, it was announced that all Oregonians 16 and older would become eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine starting April 19. Governor Kate Brown issued the following statement to accompany the announcement:
“We are locked in a race between vaccine distribution and the rapid spread of COVID-19 variants. Today, Oregon will pass the threshold of 2 million vaccine doses administered. And yet, in communities across Oregon, COVID-19 is spreading at concerning rates. We must move as quickly as possible to get more shots in arms.”
All Oregonians meeting these criteria can visit OHA’s How to Find a COVID-19 Vaccine in Oregon page to get linked to vaccine providers in their communities.
