CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — Coronavirus vaccination efforts at the Jackson County Expo that began in late March will gradually wind down over the next several weeks, public health officials announced on Thursday.

Jackson County Public Health said that it would transition its own vaccination clinic to the Expo on March 29. The local effort was soon joined by a FEMA-backed pilot community vaccination center in April, greatly expanding the site's capacity to perform vaccinations each day.

The last day for FEMA's drive-through Pfizer vaccination effort will be June 15, Jackson County said. The walk-through clinic, operated by Jackson County Public Health and offering Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, will continue until June 28.

"Residents of southern Oregon are encouraged to take advantage of the final weekend of the drive-thru facility," public health officials said. "The Expo drive-thru can facilitate over 1,000 vaccines per day. No appointment or registration required, shots are free and everyone is welcome."

The drive-through clinic is open from noon to 7 p.m. until close of business next Tuesday. Meanwhile, the mobile pop-up clinics offered by the Oregon Health Authority and Jackson County will continue.

Anyone due to receive their second Pfizer dose after June 15 can connect with an appointment via the Jackson County site or by calling 211. They can also contact Safeway/Albertsons, Walgreens, or Walmart to schedule a second dose.

The County Vaccination Equity Center opened its drive-through clinic on April 21 for an eight-week mission. As of June 8, the operation had provided more than 24,000 doses, Jackson County said. The mobile outreach clinics have provided Pfizer doses to more than 2,300 people.

"The Center has provided a safe and accessible location for people living in Jackson County and surrounding areas to receive a COVID -19 vaccine," officials continued.

More than 200 staff from around the country and connected with a number of state and federal agencies came through to support the Jackson County vaccination site.
