GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Josephine County Public Health says it will hold another COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Fairgrounds on February 14 and 15, primarily to distribute second doses to people who attended the first event.

The second clinic will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Josephine County Fairgrounds, providing second doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine to those who are ready for a second dose. The Pfizer vaccine requires a three-week wait before the second dose is administered, while the Moderna vaccine requires a four-week wait, officials said.

First doses will also be available at the clinic, but only to those in Phase 1a, teachers, and school staff members serving pre-K through 12th grade students. Registration is available online.

"Due to limited supplies, those in other eligibility groups, including childcare providers and older adults, will not be vaccinated during this clinic," officials said. "JCPH is looking for further opportunities to provide vaccines to these individuals."

Attendees will need to bring their COVID-19 Vaccine Record card to the clinic. Not bringing the card can result in "significant delays."

Josephine County Public Health says that it is working on another clinic for those who will be needing a second dose of the Moderna vaccine, to be announced at a later date.

Those who have had immediate allergic reactions of any severity to food, drug injections or insect stings should not attend these clinics and should contact their primary care provider.

Jackson County is also working on a second dose vaccination event, set for February 11-13 at the Expo.
