GRANTS PASS, Ore. — As a drive-in coronavirus vaccination effort in Jackson County takes shape, more details were released about a similar event in Josephine County on Friday evening.

Public Health officials said that the Josephine County clinic will begin on January 24 and 25 at the Josephine County Fairgrounds in Grants Pass, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

On January 26, the clinic will open at Illinois Valley High School in Cave Junction, from noon to 4 p.m.

Like the Jackson County clinic, Josephine County's effort comes in cooperation with Asante, the Oregon National Guard, and other community partners. The goal is to provide at least 3,000 doses of the vaccine to local residents.

While the clinic will be open to all people in Phase 1a, the Josephine County effort is also available to teachers and school staff members who serve pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade — something that the Jackson County clinic immediately prior is not offering.

Governor Kate Brown announced on Friday that educators and school staff would be made eligible for vaccines on January 25, and health officials indicated that some counties might make that expansion slightly sooner,

People who have had immediate allergic reactions of any severity to food, drug injections, or insect stings are asked not to attend these clinics and contact a primary care provider instead.

County officials promised that more information would posted in the coming days on the county website, here.
