COVID-19 vaccine

More than 1,100 vaccine doses were administered in Clatsop County during the week of Feb. 12, including 200 to the first group of local individuals 80 years old or older. At an event for second-dose recipients, close to 400 individuals were given their shots in less than two hours.

SENIORS: Under the State of Oregon’s phased vaccination schedule, individuals age 75 and older are to be eligible for vaccines beginning Feb. 15. However, due to the limited number of doses available locally, Clatsop County is only able to provide vaccines to those 80 and older for the time being.

These vaccines are available by appointment only. Local organizers will reach out to eligible individuals who have filled out the county’s online Vaccine Survey with instructions how to register for a vaccination clinic. If you do not have access to email, a member of our Public Information Call Center will contact you by phone to help you register for a vaccination event.

If you have not already, please sign up with the

county’s Vaccine Planning Survey. This will enter you

into our local database, and allow us to contact you when vaccines are available.

3,540 first doses

You will be asked to enter your name, age, contact information and any underlying medical conditions and, depending on the survey, place of employment. NOTE – Filling out the survey DOES NOT register you for a spot at a vaccination event. We will use the information you submit to notify you when you are eligible to receive a vaccine, and to send vaccines updates as they are available. If you do not have email, you will be called by a volunteer when you are eligible for a vaccination event.
