Lincoln County Public Health has learned from the Oregon Health Authority that vaccine allocation will be smaller than anticipated and delayed.

Lincoln County will only receive 500 prime (1st) doses, and they will not arrive in time for our Tuesday clinics due to the federal holiday. These vaccine shipments come directly from the federal distribution program and delivery is dependent upon their schedule.

Due to this development, the Tuesday, Feb. 16 clinics will be postponed.  There were some no-shows and extra doses at today’s clinic at the Lincoln County Commons (Fairgrounds) in Newport. Public Health staff began calling people who were scheduled for next Tuesday’s clinic in Newport and were able to bring 53 of those scheduled into today’s clinic.

Public Health will contact all of those scheduled for Tuesday’s clinic to explain this development and will also contact them as soon as we get the vaccines and are able to schedule another clinic. The health department thanks the community for their continued interest and patience in getting vaccinated.
