Schedule Your Vaccination

Samaritan and its county partners are committed to administering the COVID-19 vaccination to as many people, as quickly as possible in an efficient and timely manner according to guidance from the Oregon Health Authority.

The following groups are now eligible for a vaccination, effective Monday, Feb. 22:

  • All Phase 1a individuals, as outlined by the Oregon Health Authority
  • K-12 teachers and staff
  • Childcare and early learning staff
  • Senior citizens 70 and older 

Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are being administered at vaccination clinics in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties. These are both two-dose series, with 21 days between doses of Pfizer and 28 days between doses of Moderna. Scroll down to learn more about these vaccines.

Due to limited vaccine availability nationwide, the Oregon Health Authority is estimating it will take until April to vaccinate all seniors 65 and older. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Scroll down to learn more about vaccine options throughout the Samaritan service area. If you are unable to schedule an appointment or complete the waitlist forms, please contact the Samaritan COVID-19 vaccine scheduling assistance line at: 855-441-2311.

Please note: We receive very high call volumes and long wait times on this line. The line will only be answered when there are vaccine appointments available. If no more vaccine appointments are available, you will hear a message asking you to call back the next week.

Due to limited vaccine supplies, it will not be possible to schedule every person at this time.

Vaccine Safety

How do we know the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are safe? Four words:  Really large clinical trials.

The clinical trials included up to 40,000 people, which is more than double the size of most vaccine clinical trials. That allowed the pharmaceutical companies to go through the required testing steps in a very short time.

Not only are they safe, but the vaccines have been shown to be 95% effective at preventing COVID-19 infection.

How You Can Help!

Volunteers are essential to our ability to offer mass vaccination events in our communities. Volunteers are needed to help check people in, administer vaccine, observe individuals following vaccination as well as parking and crowd control.

If you’re interested in partnering with Samaritan to provide top-quality patient care, Samaritan Foundations would be honored to work with you on a gift to your local hospital.
