EUGENE, Ore. – Lane County Public Health has partnered with local clinics to boost the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine to priority residents.

Eugene Pediatrics, Oregon Medical Group and WhiteBird have all donated their facilities and staff to help vaccinate Lane County’s health care providers.

County officials say the first step is public health providing doses of the vaccine to the staff of those clinics.

“The support we have received from our clinical community, hospital groups, and EMS partners in the effort to expedite the 1A vaccination effort has been nothing short of amazing, and will be absolutely vital to our effort of achieving herd immunity here in Lane County,” said Lane County Public Health Senior Health Officer Dr. Patrick Luedtke.

Information regarding the date, time and location where health care professionals can receive a vaccine will be release through a Health Alert Network notification. Priority residents should not reach out to the clinics directly until asked to do so.
