FEMA Supports Vaccine Distribution: COVID-19 Response Update & Other Oregon Vaccine Updates

Vaccine Sequencing

Here's how we're distributing the vaccine.

We know it will take some time before every Oregonian who wants to get vaccinated can do so. Oregon Health Authority has been following a phased approach to ensure that critical health care workers, long-term care residents and employees in public health settings could get their vaccines first.

On Jan. 25, OHA began vaccinating individuals beyond this inital phase, allowing for childcare providers, early learning and K-12 educators to receive their vaccines. While vaccine supplies are expected to increase in coming weeks, supplies are currently scarce. State health officials asked for patience as more than 700,000 seniors age 65 and older become eligible for vaccines over the month of February.
