Updated December 6, 2021
Oregon finally got past our 70 percent vaccination goal—but the search for a shot is starting anew for anyone who has got their second dose of Moderna or Pfizer more than six months ago, since the CDC opened up booster shots on Friday.
With the approval of booster shots also came the go-ahead to “mix and match” the different vaccines. This means that anyone who qualifies can receive any of the FDA-approved vaccines as their booster shot.
Starting today, every adult who wants a booster can get one. I'm committed to protecting our most vulnerable Oregonians & ensuring equitable access to the extra layer of protection boosters provide. If you have questions, call your health care provider. https://t.co/MoW5N1RbSd— Governor Kate Brown (@OregonGovBrown) November 20, 2021
“We don’t anticipate any challenges who those who qualify and want to get the Pfizer booster, or for anyone who is currently unvaccinated who wants any of the doses of the three available vaccines,” Rachael Banks, public health director for Oregon Health Authority, said after the Pfizer boosters were approved last month. “The larger concern is ensuring the capacity of clinics, pharmacies, local public health systems, and other vaccinators to manage the logistics of serving vaccination sites.”
Sites like the mass clinics at the Oregon Convention Center and the Portland airport, where booster seekers got doses one and two, have long since shuttered, but due to increased demand, the Oregon Health Authority is now sponsoring smaller-scale walk-in clinics statewide. Eligible recipients can also check out their local Fred Meyer, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, or similar pharmacies for availability; many have hours that stretch beyond the typical 9-to-5 workday. They can also search their specific zip code for local vaccination sites at getvaccinated.oregon.gov or www.vaccines.gov.
Officials recommend that those looking for a booster shot call their health care provider or local vaccine location first, because clinics may be short-staffed.
Below is an incomplete list of locations in the Portland area where those seeking a booster can receive their third dose. (If you have a preference, call the location prior to double-check they have it in stock.)
