How can I get the vaccine?
You can also get the COVID-19 vaccine at a local pharmacy. Not all pharmacies have the vaccine, so check to make sure before you go. You will need to be in a group that can currently get the vaccine under the state plan. At many locations, you will need to make an appointment first.
Visit vaccinefinder.org to find the vaccine location closest to you. Please note that this resource is currently only available in English. If you need assistance in another language, call 211.
How can I get help traveling to my appointment?
If you are enrolled in Oregon Health Plan, you may be able to use Non-Emergent Medical Transportation (NEMT) to get a ride to and from your vaccine appointment. Find more information about NEMT, including a map of NEMT brokerages with phone numbers to call in your area, on the Oregon Health Authority website. Generally, NEMT must be scheduled and authorized ahead of time. You can call the brokerages directly to schedule a ride.
If you are an older adult or an adult with a disability, there may also be other services in your community to assist with transportation. To learn more:
Contact the Aging and Disability Resource Connection of Oregon to see what community-based transportation and other services are available to assist you.
If you receive in-home services through the Oregon Department of Human Services Office of Aging and People with Disabilities or the Office of Developmental Disabilities Services, you may ask your Medicaid-funded in-home provider to take you to a clinic and to wait with you at the clinic.
