COVID Vaccine Access and Eligibility

Woman,With,Face,Mask,Getting,Vaccinated,,Coronavirus,,Covid-19,And,VaccinationThe wait for COVID vaccines in Oregon continues to be challenging. AIM Health stands ready to administer the vaccine. We have been approved as a COVID vaccine provider and we have the appropriate storage refrigeration.

At this time, we have received no word on when or if we will be given any vaccine. We will contact you once we do.

Meanwhile, the vaccine is being distributed by a collaboration of the large health systems, the state, and a few large pharmacy distributors, primarily those who service long-term-care facilities.

Resources for COVID Vaccine Access and Eligibility:

Currently, it appears that the Oregon Health Authority interactive online tool is the most effective and reliable source of information regarding COVID vaccine eligibility and access. Here’s what to do.

  1. Oregon residents. Please visit the OHA website for details, including vaccine events by county in Oregon and the Portland metro area, as they become available. https://covidvaccine.oregon.gov/

      • Click on the WHITE CHAT BUBBLE at the lower right corner of your screen, the Oregon Health Authority Vaccination Chat Tool bubble“VACCINE CHAT TOOL” where you can determine if you are eligible and if a time slot is available.

      • Keep checking regularly as eligibility, time slots, and availability are updated.

  2. Washington residents. Please visit the DOH website for details in the Vancouver metro area. https://www.doh.wa.gov/Emergencies/COVID19/vaccine
