CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- The Oregon Health Authority arrived at the Jackson County Expo overnight to open another Covid-19 vaccine and testing clinic.
The clinic will be open Tuesday through Sunday for the next two weeks beginning September 28. Hours will be from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Newswatch 12 asked Jackson County Public Healths' Tanya Phillips if the Pfizer booster shots would be available at the drive-up Expo clinic. While this was not the case earlier on Tuesday, by that afternoon the Expo was able to get its order approved, allowing the clinic to distribute boosters.
Phillips says vaccine orders signed by a medical operator is the case for any vaccine, not just the Covid shots.
"All medical providers that are providing any vaccination, we all operate under standing orders," Phillips said. "So, we all need those standing orders signed, and what's in that standing order gives us the directions for giving vaccines."
Jackson County continues to offer multiple locations for first series Pfizer recipients to get a booster, and people seeking a booster shot in Jackson County are being asked to call 211 for further information.
Phillips says anyone who has been previously vaccinated with a Covid-19 shot should plan to bring their CDC card, and providing further information will not be necessary.
