Lane County Public Health is partnering with White Bird Clinic, Eugene Pediatrics, and Oregon Medical Group to help vaccinate Lane County’s diverse group of healthcare providers. This process began Saturday, January 9th, with Lane County Public Health providing doses to vaccinate the staff of those clinics.
PLEASE DO NOT REACH OUT TO THESE CLINICS TO RECEIVE THE VACCINATION UNTIL DIRECTED TO DO SO.
“The support we have received from our clinical community, hospital groups, and EMS partners in the effort to expedite the 1A vaccination effort has been nothing short of amazing, and will be absolutely vital to our effort of achieving herd immunity here in Lane County,” said Lane County Public Health Senior Health Officer, Dr. Patrick Luedtke.

In line with CDC guidance, White Bird will prioritize our frontline health care workers and employees as the first group to receive the vaccine. This includes our doctors, nurses, janitorial staff, and others who have the potential for direct or indirect contact with COVID-19 patients or infectious materials.
