Covid-19 Vaccine Information
COVID-19 Vaccines for Moderately to Severely Immunocompromised People
NOTICE: CDC now recommends that people whose immune systems are compromised moderately to severely should receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine after the initial 2 doses. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic.
While people who are immunocompromised make up about 3% of the U.S. adult population, they are especially vulnerable to COVID-19 because they are more at risk of serious, prolonged illness. Included in CDC’s recommendation are people with a range of conditions, such as recipients of organ or stem cell transplants, people with advanced or untreated HIV infection, active recipients of treatment for cancer, people who are taking some medications that weaken the immune system, and others.
All Oregonians age 12 and older are eligible to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Basic Protective Measures Against the Coronavirus
Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others, especially the elderly. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:
Wear your mask!- Masks are a simple barrier to help prevent your respiratory droplets from reaching others.
Wash your hands frequently- Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with soap and warm water, and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth- Your hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth and enter your body.
Maintain social distancing- Try to keep at least 6 feet between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. If you are too close, you can breath in the droplets that may contain viruses.
Practice respiratory hygiene- Make sure you, and the people around you cover their mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing. If using a tissue dispose of immediately.
If you have a fever (over 101 degrees), cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early- Stay home if you feel unwell. If you feel you should be seen by a medical provider call in advance.
