JACKSON COUNTY, Ore-- Fema has partnered with Jackson County Public Health, Rogue Food Unites and the Department of Health Services to provide free Covid-19 vaccines across Southern Oregon to under-served communities. The two dose Pfizer vaccine will be given at every pop up event for anyone 16 years or older. Parent consent is not needed to receive the vaccine and identification is not required. Both first and second doses will be provided at each pop up event.
Each clinic will have bilingual speakers and a box of food provided by Rogue Food Unites that will supply up to a week's worth of food for two people. Rogue Food Unites says that they hope the box of food, which will also include a gift card, will be an incentive for people to get vaccinated and to come back in 28 days to receive their second dose.
"We're going to be partnering through all the mobile vaccination events. So we have around 32 in the next four weeks...Overall a seven week mission for the mobile vaccination events." -Adam Danforth, co-director Rogue Food Unites.
