Washington County Public Health has put together a list of frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccine and provided answers based on information from the Oregon Health Authority.
The following information is provided by the health department:
One of the most common questions we hear from you is “when will I have access to the COVID-19 vaccine?” We know you are frustrated because there is not enough vaccine to meet demand, and information about eligibility and access keeps changing. We all want to get back to normal life, to run our businesses, to interact with our loved ones, and to share space with others like we used to.
We will be able to do that once many more Oregonians receive their vaccines. That process started in mid-December and so far more than 173,000 Oregonians have received their first of two doses. More than 25,000 of those doses went to people in Washington County. (See OHA website for updated numbers.)
Most people will be vaccinated by their own health care provider, a clinic or pharmacy. Health systems are planning large vaccination events, and counties are working with partners to make sure everyone has access once the vaccine is available.
We want you to have the latest information, so we asked Washington County Public Health to answer your most common questions.
