KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Though coronavirus vaccine supply remains an issue, vaccine providers in Klamath County say that they are planning a clinic for this coming weekend that will serve the newly-eligible 75 and older group.

Sky Lakes Medical Center says that it will host a clinic on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for Klamath County residents 75 and older. The clinic will be held on the first floor of the Sky Lakes Collaborative Health Center.

Vaccinations are by appointment only and can be scheduled by calling 1-833-606-4370 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays. No walk-in slots or on-site appointments are available.

There will also be doses available to the 75 and older group at the Merrill and Bonanza clinics on a walk-in basis, Klamath County Public Health said.

Health officials cautioned that there is still a very limited supply of doses. On the same day that seniors 75 and older became eligible, winter storms across the country hampered shipments, delaying Klamath County's shipment this week.

Some of the doses arriving in Klamath County have been earmarked as second doses for educators following a Public Health vaccination clinic last month. A follow-up event is still in the works. Sky Lakes is receiving 690 first doses with this shipment, officials said.

"Doses are limited," KCPH said. "Not everyone who wants a vaccine will receive one immediately. Please continue to be patient."

Klamath County held similar clinics for the 80+ age group earlier in the month.
