Lincoln County will stay low-risk through March 26, with nearly 23 percent of the population vaccinated, and the next group eligible to get COVID-19 vaccines will include pregnant women.

Governor Kate Brown added pregnant women to the 1B Group 6 list of those eligible starting March 29 to receive the vaccine, along with adults 45-64 with certain underlying conditions, such as cancer, kidney disease, COPD, Down Syndrome, heart condition, obesity, sickle cell disease and Type 2 diabetes.

Also on the list are migrant and seasonal farmworkers, seafood and agricultural workers, food processors, people living in low-income senior housing, wildfire victims, wildland firefighters and homeless.

According to Lincoln County Public Health officials, 11,036 –22.87 percent– of Lincoln County residents have started or completed vaccinations as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, March 12. 5,964 people have been fully vaccinated and 5,702 have received one dose.

Lincoln County’s total COVID-19 cases as of March 12 is 1,152.

Those who want to get a COVID-19 vaccine can request one online:

REQUEST VACCINE 

Health officials said they will email or call eligible groups when new clinics are opened with additional appointments.

Covid-19 vaccines can also be obtained by eligible groups at local pharmacies, such as Safeway, via website or app. No walk-ins are possible at this time. Lincoln City’s Safeway gets 100-200 doses weekly of the Moderna vaccine, but staff said they go quickly and urge vaccine hopefuls to check the app or website frequently as the computer links available doses with requests and fills them immediately.
