Mobile Vaccinations Return To Crook County

Cases of COVID are on the rise not only in Oregon, but the entire nation. In Crook County our case count is higher than ever before counted. Oregon Health Authority (OHA) in partnership with the Crook County Health Department came to Crook County in July with a mobile vaccination clinic and administered over 30 doses of the 3 available vaccines. The mobile clinic is returning the week of August 23rd – 27th to administer the 2nd doses and to accommodate 1st doses to anyone who wants one. The mobile clinic will revisit a variety of locations within Crook County.

The Mobile Clinic is designed to bring the vaccine to you, so if you cannot access the vaccine at any of the current locations or have not received your 2nd dose yet this is a great way for you to protect yourself and others against COVID. All three Vaccines will be available to choose from – Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson and Johnson. If you choose Moderna or Pfizer you will be given information on where to schedule to get your 2nd dose. Johnson and Johnson is a one-shot vaccine.

Food Boxes will be available at the mobile vaccination clinic sites during the hours of operation. If you can benefit, please come by, and pick one up. There will be a limited amount at each location and are first come first serve. The food boxes are courtesy of Oregon Health Authority.
