Governor announces expanded eligibility for COVID-19 vaccine

Governor Kate Brown announced yesterday that COVID-19 vaccine eligibility in Oregon has been expanded to include age-eligible household family members of frontline workers and that the state is expanding its list of qualifying underlying health conditions to align with the CDC’s revised list.

“As we move into the days and weeks ahead, we will continue to deploy a vaccine strategy that is centered on prioritizing our most vulnerable, and ensuring access to the vaccine for everyone. To do this, we need to move in a manner that is both fast and fair,” she said.
