Free Covid-19 Testing and Vaccination Events Scheduled

Beginning Tuesday, Aug. 31, Malheur County’s Incident Command System and the Oregon Health Authority will team up to provide a weekly COVID-19 testing and vaccination site in Ontario.

The drive-through events will take place every Tuesday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the fairgrounds. People will be able to access testing, vaccinations, or both. It is important to note that test results will take approximately 15 minutes. Only people whose tests are positive will be contacted. People receiving vaccinations will be asked to wait 15 minutes before departing the area. Testing is for people of all ages, and vaccinations can be accessed by people age 12 and older.

Follow signage when you arrive at the fairground, entry will be from the south entrance. People who wish to receive testing or vaccination services are asked not to leave their vehicle during the process. All three vaccines will be available.

  1. Can I get this flyer as an attachment, so that we can post on our electronic visual boards and post throughout the factory?

  2. Hi there,
    Is there a way to get a copy of the negative test results to show a business, sports program? if so, my family came over for the latest clinic yesterday, and a few others. Just checking to see how to go about getting that information back by the time we need it on Thurs afternoon? Also, we would love to help get the word out to help others get tested…would you be willing to email me a flyer.
    Thanks, Nina

    • Hi, Nina – I’m sorry it took so long to get back to you! People who go through the test site can have a negative result emailed that same day. Unfortunately, we were not set up to do that last week. I hope you were able to get your negative test results sent to you! Send an email to, and I will email you a flyer.
