Med Volunteers Power White Bird's Mass Vax Clinics In Eugene

Tiffany Eckert

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.”

Chris Hecht with White Bird Medical said since Monday, they’ve tripled patient volume. He added eligible adults can learn more and make their own appointment for a vaccination by visiting the White Bird Clinic website or calling 541-246-2341.
