News Release
Lane County Public Health Further Expands COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution With Clinical Partnership - 01/08/21

Lane County Public Health Announces Local Clinic Partnership To Bolster 1A COVID-19 Vaccination Effort 

Lane County Public Health announced today a partnership with three local provider groups to greatly expand the 1A COVID-19 vaccination effort. Eugene Pediatrics, Oregon Medical Group, and WhiteBird have all graciously agreed to donate their facilities and staff to help vaccinate Lane County’s diverse group of healthcare providers. This process will begin with Lane County Public Health providing doses to vaccinate the staff of those clinics. 

“The support we have received from our clinical community, hospital groups, and EMS partners in the effort to expedite the 1A vaccination effort has been nothing short of amazing, and will be absolutely vital to our effort of achieving herd immunity here in Lane County,” said Lane County Public Health Senior Health Officer, Dr. Patrick Luedtke.

Following the effort to vaccinate the staff of these three provider groups, information regarding the date, time, and location of clinics where other local healthcare professionals can receive vaccinations will be released via a Health Alert Network notification. PLEASE DO NOT REACH OUT TO THESE CLINICS TO RECEIVE THE VACCINATION UNTIL DIRECTED TO DO SO.
