News Release
Lane County Hospital Groups to Assist in Completing 1A COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution - 01/08/21

In accordance with the Oregon Health Authority  guidance issued on Tuesday, Jan. 5, and Lane County Public Health’s local vaccination plan, Lane County’s two hospital groups, McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center and PeaceHealth, will be scheduling and vaccinating high-priority, frontline healthcare professionals. This partnership will greatly expedite the overall effort to vaccinate the more than 26,000 Lane County healthcare providers who are eligible under Phase 1A. This is a hopeful next step in the new vaccination era, and our hospital groups will be reaching out to the many healthcare clinics in the county to schedule and coordinate their vaccination process.

“Through this effort, we will enable those who keep the many communities of Lane County healthy to continue the invaluable work they do, unencumbered by the threat of contracting COVID-19 themselves,” Dr. Pat Luedtke, Lane County’s Senior Public Health Officer.
