News Release
TODAY: Former Multnomah Greyhound Park opens as high-volume COVID-19 vaccine site - 12/05/21

UPDATE: This release has been updated with the correct spelling of Jana McLellan.

PORTLAND, Ore. — The site of the former Multnomah Greyhound Park in Wood Village will open this morning – Sunday, Dec. 5 – as a high-volume Oregon Health Authority COVID-19 vaccination site.

OHA representatives will join members of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde at 9 a.m. for a brief opening ceremony to officially open the site, located at 944 NE 223rd Ave., Wood Village. The ceremony will kick off with a blessing and remarks by CTGR Tribal Councilman Jon George, followed by a performance from tribal drummers. Jana McLellan, director of OHA's COVID Response and Recovery Unit, will give closing remarks. 

The site is one of nearly a dozen high-volume COVID-19 vaccinations sites OHA has opened, or will be opening, around the state this month – in partnership with local public health authorities and community-based organizations – as part of its effort to increase immunizations against the virus. 

All three approved COVID-19 vaccines – Pfizer, Modern and Johnson & Johnson – will be available, as well as booster and pediatric doses (younger children are only eligible for the Pfizer vaccine). The clinics are walk-in/drive-in only, and no appointment is required.

All vaccines are offered at no cost, and no medical insurance coverage required.
