COVID-19 Vaccinations

The COVID-19 vaccination rollout in Oregon has been confusing and often frustrating.  Getting an appointment for a vaccine may not be easy.  We have more eligible people than vaccine. Fortunately, our local pharmacies are starting to administer COVID-19 vaccine.  The mass vaccine clinic at the Oregon Convention Center and the Portland Airport are well organized.  The challenge is getting your appointment. Vaccine appointments open up slowly throughout the week.  If you can’t get an appointment one day, try the next, and maybe earlier in the morning.  More vaccine is on its way!
