Oregon Convention Center to end mass vaccinations
The mass coronavirus vaccination site at the Oregon Convention Center is beginning to wrap up operations.
Between now and Thursday, May 27, that site will offer first and second doses. Appointments no longer are necessary, and walk-ins are being accepted.
In June, organizers say they will begin offering second shots only.
They say expect to close the site on Saturday, June 19.
All Oregonians ages 16 and older are currently eligible for the vaccine, which is free.
The site is a collaboration between Kaiser Permanente, Legacy Health, Oregon Health & Science University and Providence, which have combining vaccine supplies and their staffs of doctors, nurses and clinical personnel. Members of the Oregon National Guard also are working at the Convention Center site.
Appointments are still being taken for first and second shots, but appointments no longer are mandatory. More information is available here.
The Oregon Convention Center is at 777 N.E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Portland.
