PORTLAND, Ore. — Several new high-volume COVID-19 vaccinations sites are opening up across the state of Oregon, including one in Jackson County.
According to the Oregon Health Authority, the site at the Jackson County Expo will be open Monday through Thursday from noon to seven at night. On weekends, the site will be open on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. along with a family fun clinic.
On top of that, several of sites including the the site of the former Multnomah Greyhound Park in Wood Village will be running as a high-volume Oregon Health Authority COVID-19 vaccination site starting today
The site is one of nearly a dozen high-volume COVID-19 vaccinations sites OHA has opened, or will be opening, around the state this month – in partnership with local public health authorities and community-based organizations – as part of its effort to increase immunizations against the virus.
All three approved COVID-19 vaccines – Pfizer, Modern and Johnson & Johnson – will be available, as well as booster and pediatric doses (younger children are only eligible for the Pfizer vaccine). The clinics are walk-in/drive-in only, and no appointment is required.
All vaccines are offered at no cost, and no medical insurance coverage required.
Health officials at the Jackson County Expo did not confirm to NewsWatch if Sunday's pediatric vaccination clinic is apart of these new high-volume COVID-19 vaccinations sites opening across the state.
