An important update on getting vaccinated

Oregon released a comprehensive vaccination eligibility timeline outlining when people can expect to have access to a vaccine. Under these projections, 3.5 million Oregonians should be able to receive their first dose by the end of May.

This is positive news, but please remember: while vaccine distribution is accelerating, the initial supply should be prioritized for the most vulnerable in our communities. Please be patient, be kind, and help inform your community about when and how they can access the vaccine.

Here's what's next:

  • No later than March 29, 2021: Adults between ages 45 and 64 with underlying health conditions, migrant farmworkers, seafood and agricultural workers, food processors, people in low-income and congregate senior housing, people experiencing homelessness, people displaced by wildfires and wildland firefighters.

  • No later than May 1, 2021: Adults between 16 and 44 with underlying health conditions, people in multigenerational housing, and other frontline workers as defined by the CDC. Frontline workers include grocery and food service workers, U.S. Postal Service employees, transit workers, local and state government workers and journalists.

  • No later than June 1, 2021: All adults between 45 and 64.

  • No later than July 1, 2021: All Oregonians 16 and older.

Appointments continue to be limited but are increasing every day. You can access information about your county and participating pharmacies online via my website, or by dialing 211.

Thank you for all you've done this year to keep Oregon healthy.
