Lincoln County Wants To Hear From Eligible Vaccine Recipients


Public health officials in Lincoln County are searching for eligible recipients to receive the coronavirus vaccine.

The county said it’s reaching out to agencies and employers in the Oregon Health Authority’s “Phase 1a” group. That includes clinics, long-term care facilities, and first responders.


Lincoln County Public Health said any eligible organization that isn’t contacted soon should reach out to the agency as soon as possible. The agency invited those organizations to fill out a survey on its website.

As of Wednesday, Lincoln County was among the top 10 Oregon counties when it comes to vaccines administered per capita.
