This week, Eugene’s Bethel School District is holding COVID-19 vaccination clinics for 12 to 15 year old students. KLCC’s Tiffany Eckert visited a clinic at Willamette High School to see how things were going.
More than $200 million in direct payments were made from the U.S. Treasury Department to Oregon tribes this year. It was part of the CARES Act of 2020, to help native communities’ emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the allocated money must be spent by year’s end, which puts the tribes in a bit of a bind.
