Who Is Eligible for the COVID-19 Vaccine?

All Oregonians, age 6 months and older, are now eligible for COVID-19 vaccination. 

See the Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 Vaccination Schedule for information on the number and timing of doses for each age group. 

Patients under 15 who are not accompanied by a parent or guardian, must bring a signed consent form with them when getting vaccinated at a Samaritan facility. 

Boosters

Newly developed boosters targeting the widely circulating Omicron variants are authorized for ages 5 and up.

The new boosters are offered at Samaritan Pharmacies, primary care clinics and SamCare Express in Corvallis - though supplies are still very limited.

Second Boosters & Additional Boosters

Second booster doses are recommended for all people ages 50 and over and immunocompromised people ages 12 and over, at least four months after the first booster.

Additional boosters are recommended for:

  • All adults ages 65 and over. 
  • Adults ages 50 and over with underlying medical conditions. 
  • All immunocompromised people ages 12 and over (Pfizer) or ages 18 and over (Moderna).
See the Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 Vaccination Schedule for information on the timing of boosters for each age group. 

National and state health agencies have also authorized “mixing and matching” of the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine brands for boosters, meaning a person may get a booster dose of a different vaccine than they originally received. 

Third Doses for Immunocompromised

A third dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine is authorized for moderate or severely immunocompromised patients, given at least 28 days after their second dose. Boosters would then be administered at the appropriate time following the third dose. Read more about this here.
