Jackson County Vaccination Event at the Expo Updates
Suppose you were vaccinated at the Jackson County Expo on January 21, 22, or 23. In that case, you will need to schedule your second dose by going to the Asante pre-registration page, scroll down to step 5, and schedule an appointment with Asante or Providence.
Phase 1B, Group 1 (early childhood educators and staff, childcare providers and staff, public and private K-12 educators and staff) are eligible to bevaccinated statewide starting January 25. Jackson County offered the vaccine early for this population through the vaccination event held at the Jackson County Expo. For those who are eligible in Phase 1B Group 1 and were not vaccinated for their first dose at the Expo, they can reach out to one of the providers listed on the Jackson County Health and Human Services COVID-19 Vaccine website.
Following the Oregon prioritization for the COVID-19 vaccine, individuals 65 and older will be eligible for the vaccine starting:
- Group 2: people 80 and older are eligible the week of February 7, 2021
- Group 3: people 75 and older are eligible the week of February 14, 2021
- Group 4: people 70 and older are eligible the week of February 21, 2021
- Group 5: people 65 and older are eligible the week of February 28, 2021
These timelines are based on how many vaccines will be available. Oregon's vaccine supply is limited, and it is estimated to take 12-15 weeks to vaccinate groups 1-5 of Phase 1B. COVID-19 providers are not scheduling appointments for those in Groups 2-5 in Phase 1B. Please check the Jackson County Health and Human Services COVID-19 Vaccine website to see when you may be eligible and where you can access the vaccine when it is your turn.
