News Release
Lane County to Resume COVID-19 Boost Vaccinations for Adults amid Successful Pediatric Vaccination Rollout for Kids 5 to 11 - 11/23/21

By Appointment Boost Clinics Open at Lane Events Center Drive-Through Facility on November 30, 2021

 

Beginning Tuesday, November 30, 2021, Lane County Public Health will resume offering boost doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for individuals 18 years and older who are six months past completion of the two dose primary series of either Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines, or 2 months after their initial dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. Initially, only the Moderna boost doses will be offered at the drive-through clinic facility constructed at the Lane Events Center on 13thStreet in Eugene effective November 30, 2021. Patients with appointments will receive priority; those without appointments will be accommodated as clinic capacity allows. 

 

“After fully focusing on providing pediatric vaccinations for kids aged 5 to 11 over the past two weeks, we’ve made tremendous progress,” said Steve Adams, Lane County COVID-19 Incident Commander. “Together with our pediatric, family care, and pharmacy providers, we’ve served over 20% of our 5-11 year old population with a first dose in just two full weeks of vaccination operations. In assessing our capacity, we’re confident that we’re able to meet ongoing pediatric demand as we return to providing opportunities for adult boosters.”

 

On Wednesday, November 24th, LCPH will open scheduling for the following week of vaccine booster appointments (Tuesday Nov 30th through Friday December 3rd). Given the high demand for Moderna vaccine and the opportunity to serve more people, LCPH will initially only be offering the Moderna vaccine. Those seeking Pfizer or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are advised to check with local pharmacies and their primary care provider. On Friday, December 3, appointments for the week of December 6th will be posted.
