Having different types of vaccines can offer more options and flexibility for the public, jurisdictions and vaccine providers. For example, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is easier to store and only requires one dose, which can make it useful for people who may have a difficult time returning for a second dose.
Since supply is still limited, getting vaccinated with the first vaccine available to you will help to protect yourself and others from the spread of COVID-19.
Here are two ways to get linked up to vaccine resources in your community:
- How to Find a COVID-19 Vaccine is a web page that helps you to determine your eligibility, create a Get Vaccinated Oregon account, and locate a vaccine provider in your community.
- 211 is a resource that you can use to uncover vaccine registration information if you are unable to use the Get Vaccinated Oregon tool.
