UPDATED: COVID-19 Vaccination Reference Guide

Apr 15, 2021

To help navigate the process of getting vaccinated where you live, here’s a handy reference guide.

The newest eligible age group for COVID-19 vaccine is 12 to 15 years.

All Oregonians 12 and older are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for people as young as 12.  

Minors who are 15 years of age or older are allowed to consent to medical services without parental consent in Oregon. This includes vaccinations. Children ages 12-14 must have the approval of their parent or guardian to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

There are a few ways to get the shot—through the county health department, at a pharmacy or from your doctor. Currently, all vaccination sites are providing either Pfizer or Moderna. Both brands require a second, follow up shot. Some smaller clinics are administering the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. All COVID-19 vaccines, no matter where they are administered, are free of charge.

    In many cases, your medical provider can schedule and administer a vaccine for you. This varies though-- so people are advised to contact their health provider to see if they have the vaccine on hand.
