Clinics with no-cost shots are opening in the Portland area and around Oregon.

PMG FILE PHOTO - Drive/through and walk/in vaccinations are available across the state.The site of the former Multnomah Greyhound Park in Wood Village opened as a high-volume Oregon Health Authority COVID-19 vaccination site on Sunday, Dec. 5.

The site is one of nearly a dozen high-volume COVID-19 vaccinations sites the health authority has opened, or will be opening, in the region and around the state in December in partnership with local public health authorities and community-based organizations as part of its effort to increase immunizations against the virus. 

The Wood Village site is located at 944 N.E. 223rd Ave. Health authority representatives were joined by members of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde at 9 a.m. for a brief opening ceremony. It kicked off with a blessing and remarks by Tribal Councilman Jon George, followed by a performance from tribal drummers. Jana McLellan, director of the health authority's COVID-19 Response and Recovery Unit, gave closing remarks. 

All three approved COVID-19 vaccines — Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson — are available, as well as booster and pediatric doses (younger children are only eligible for the Pfizer vaccine). The clinics are walk-in/drive-in only, and no appointment is required.

All vaccines are offered at no cost, and no medical insurance coverage is required.
