Canby, Molalla will host vaccination centers
Clackamas County has created several new COVID-19 vaccination clinics throughout the county, including sites in Canby and Molalla, which opened March 24.
Vaccination clinics are set up at Molalla High School, the Clackamas County Event Center in Canby, at Clackamas Town Center, Clackamas Community College Wilsonville Campus and Sandy High School.
Here is what you need to know and how to get an appointment:
• All vaccination clinics are by appointment and only open to Clackamas County residents who currently are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
• You can schedule a vaccination appointment by visiting www.Clackamas.us/coronavirus/vaccine.
• If you do not have access to a computer, please call 503-655-8224 for help setting up an appointment.
• Some appointments are filling quickly. There will be more vaccination clinics as more vaccines are obtained. Additional vaccination clinics will be announced on the county website and social media networks once they are scheduled.
At your appointment:
• Bring photo ID.
• Wear a mask and observe physical distancing guidelines.
• Insurance information will be collected at time of appointment. Uninsured will not be turned away. The vaccine is free.
• Everyone welcome, regardless of immigration status.
• Information will be kept confidential.
These vaccine clinics are for currently eligible Clackamas County residents, which include Phase 1A (groups 1-4) and Phase 1B (groups 1-5, which includes educators and older adults 65+).
On March 19, Gov. Kate Brown announced accelerated vaccination timelines if a county has largely finished vaccinating seniors. Fifty percent of seniors in Clackamas County are vaccinated; therefore Clackamas County will not accelerate COVID-19 vaccine eligibility. The county will use this week to give seniors an opportunity to get vaccinated.
Sign up at www.getvaccinated.oregon.gov/ to be notified of appointments when they are available for your eligibility group. Visit the website for more details on how to sign up for a local clinic in Clackamas County: https://www.clackamas.us/coronavirus/vaccine
