Lane County Public Health will be holding a vaccine clinic for people 16 to 17 years old.

Where: Lane Community College

When: April 24 and 25 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

What: 2,400 doses of Pfizer will be made available for those 16 to 17 years old.  Additional doses will be made available to the general public.

How: This clinic is by appointment only, please go to http://lanecounty.org/vaxclinics to schedule your vaccine appointment.

Additional clinics are being held throughout the area, including Lane Events Center (Fairgrounds) and Autzen Stadium.

Please note: 18 year old students are also eligible at this time, but this clinic is specific to those that are 16-17 because only Pfizer is approved for that age group.

This vaccine requires a second dose 21 days after the initial dose. The second appointment will be set when students arrive for their initial vaccination.

Students are able to self-authorize for the vaccine under Oregon’s minor consent law. However, if you would like to have your child receive a free COIVD vaccine, please call or email Linda Richardson @ 541-925-3262 / lrichardson@blachly.k12.or.us by 4:00pm Thursday 4/22/21 if you would like to be included.  If you decide that you wish to have your child vaccinated during this time, we will transport your child and they will be supervised by health professionals and Blachly School District staff.  All submitted information will remain confidential.
