Malheur County has teamed up with Oregon Health Authority and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to offer a COVID-19 vaccine event April 16-23 in Ontario. I have attached flyers in English and Spanish. Please feel free to print and/or post and distribute widely!
The event will take place at the Malheur County Fairgrounds and distribute up to 2,000 vaccines. Participants will receive the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the first dose of Moderna and be scheduled for a second dose. The event was scheduled to provide people in Malheur County with convenient opportunities for vaccination.
The vaccine is free and health insurance is not required (those who have health insurance are asked to bring their insurance card). Everyone who is age 18+ can be vaccinated at this event, regardless of immigration status. No one will be asked to provide proof of identification or documentation. No appointment is needed.
Currently, Pfizer is the only vaccine available to people age 16-17 and will not be available at this vaccine event. For information on getting a Pfizer vaccine, or to learn more about this vaccination event, people can call the Malheur County Health Department at 541-889-7279.
Thank you for helping us reach all of Malheur County with this information. Please don’t hesitate to email or call me if you have questions.
