OHA Announces Plan for Vaccine Distribution

Oregon Health Authority (OHA) announces initial plans for vaccine distribution to health providers
• ACT staff are considered priority health care providers as defined by the OHA.
• At this time, the vaccine is in limited supply and the specifics of the distribution plan will be informed by the Vaccine Advisory Committee which is expected to convene on 1/7/21.
What does that mean for you?
o Oregon has not yet received (nor has been allocated) enough vaccine to administer vaccine to all potential recipients in the health care provider priority group (Group 1, Phase1a).
o OHA is working to develop operational plans to connect individuals to vaccines as more vaccine arrives over these coming weeks and months.
o OHA will be posting more information about these operational plans in the coming weeks on their website https://covidvaccine.oregon.gov/ .
o Another helpful website regarding COVID vaccines is: https://www.oregon.gov/oha/PH/PREVENTIONWELLNESS/VACCINESIMMUNIZATION/IMMUNIZATIONPROVIDERRESOURCES/Pages/COVIDvaccine.aspx
o If you have questions in the meantime, please send them to OHA at: COVID19.Vaccine@dhsoha.state.or.us
