COVID-19 Vaccines and Testing
(Updated May 14, 2021)
Protect Yourself and Others
Getting vaccinated, testing and contact tracing are key to saving lives and getting our community “back to normal” as soon as possible.
Practice the 4 Ws
Until we vaccinate enough Oregonians to stop the spread of COVID-19, we need to continue following safety measures that will help protect ourselves and others.
- Wear a Mask – indoors and outside when you can’t maintain 6 feet of space
- Watch Your Distance – stay 6-feet apart from those outside your household and limit your gathering size
- Wash Your Hands – often with soap and water for 20 seconds throughout the day
- Wait It Out – stay home if you are sick
NEW – If Fully Vaccinated
Oregonians who are fully-vaccinated no longer need to wear masks or social distance in most public spaces. There are a few exceptions. Fully-vaccinated people will still be required to wear masks and physically distance in the following places:
- Public transportation
- Health care clinics
- Correctional facilities
- Long-term care facilities
*It is not required that all businesses adopt new masking and physical distancing policies.
All Oregonians age 16 and older eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccine.
We all want to return to normal life as soon as possible. Safe and effective vaccines play a huge part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 and making that return to normalcy a possibility.

Federal Retail Pharmacy Program
Many pharmacies in Lane County are receiving vaccine supply directly from the federal government in addition to state and local distribution. Check with your local pharmacy to see if they have appointments available. Their supply continues to be limited, so we suggest that if you don't find an appointment right away to keep checking and take the first appointment available to you whether from Lane County, your primary care provider, or your pharmacy.
Current Pharmacies that may be vaccinating in Lane County:
