White Bird Clinic has partnered with the iconic W.O.W. Hall performance space in downtown Eugene to offer indoor COVID-19 vaccinations. Anyone currently eligible under state guidelines can get the shot there.

White Bird’s clinics are “volunteer-powered” with scores of medically trained professionals who want to help during the pandemic. One of them is Cindy Nicholson. She’s been a Registered Nurse for 30 years.

“But being able to do this is just the most worthwhile thing that I’ve ever done as a nurse,” she said. “It makes me feel so good as a nurse. People come in and they’re so grateful to have the vaccine, they cry.”
