Facts about the COVID-19 Vaccine
Vaccination is the best way to keep yourself, your family, and your community healthy.

COVID-19 vaccines are 95% effective and have undergone rigorous safety testing.

People who are most affected by the COVID-19 virus will have first access to the vaccination. In Oregon, that will be frontline health care workers who are exposed to the virus in their work.

Vaccination gives us hope that the pandemic will end, but in the meantime, we need to continue safety measures to keep the virus from spreading: Wear a mask, physically distance from others, wash your hands, avoid gatherings, and stay home when you’re sick.

It will take time to distribute the vaccines.

It will be months before a COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone. It will take time to make enough vaccines and distribute them in our communities.

COVID-19 vaccines will be given in phases determined by the Oregon Health Authority. Priority groups will get the vaccine first, this includes frontline healthcare workers and residents, and employees of long-term care facilities.

As the COVID-19 vaccines becomes available, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) will ensure the distribution process is based on community involvement that will provide an equitable system challenging the roles of power, privilege and racism - informed by a newly assembled Vaccine Advisory Committee (VAC).

Using an equity framework, OHA will distribute the COVID-19 vaccine in line with CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice (ACIP) recommended a phased approach:

1A. Health care workers, with first distribution to those with direct exposure to COVID19 in their work (such as hospital paid and unpaid workers, from clinicians to maintenance), EMS, long-term care facilities (LTCF) employees, and residents.

1B. Essential workers such as teachers, bus drivers, food processors and other people who keep our society open and economy moving.

1C. People with underlying health conditions and people over the age of 65. (B and C completed in late spring, depending on vaccine availability).
