Samaritan’s retail pharmacies in Albany, Corvallis and Lebanon are offering vaccines by appointment as well. Find more information at samhealth.org/GetTheVaccine.
Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be administered, depending on the location. Both are two-dose series and the second dose will be scheduled before the patient leaves.
