Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and All4Oregon have created a new process for scheduling a first COVID-19 appointment at the Oregon Convention Center (OCC).
Here’s how it works:
- Eligible older adults who live in Clackamas, Columbia, Multnomah or Washington counties who registered for a vaccine through the Get Vaccinated Oregon (GVO) tool will receive an advance email from OHA indicating they will be receiving email notifications from All4Oregon inviting them to make an appointment at OCC.
- That message from OHA will be followed by an email from All4Oregon that contains a unique individualized link that connects to the All4Oregon scheduling site with open dates and times for vaccines available the next week. This link will expire if not used within five days.
- OHA will allocate 15,000 vaccines a week, about 50% more vaccines, for the next three weeks to All4Oregon to vaccinate adults 65+ in Clackamas, Columbia, Multnomah and Washington counties.
If you live in another part of the state and are 65 or older you can also use the Get Vaccinated Oregon tool to register for notifications and find information about vaccination events in your area. Locations and steps to get vaccinated will differ from county to county.
If you provide Get Vaccinated Oregon with your email, please check all email inbox folders, including spam, promotion and trash, in case the invitation ends up diverted to the wrong folder.
