Today’s COVID-19 vaccine clinic canceled due to weather-related shipping delays

UPDATED FEB. 18, 8:10 a.m.

The Malheur County Health Department and Incident Command team have canceled today’s first-dose COVID-19 vaccine clinic, which was scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. at the Four Rivers Cultural Center, due to lack of vaccine availability. Severe winter weather has hampered vaccine delivery across the country, mostly because of delayed flights out of Kentucky and Tennessee. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

The second-dose clinic that is scheduled for this morning is not affected by shipping delays. MCHD has already received the vaccine needed for second doses for people who received their first dose on Jan. 21.

The next first-dose vaccine clinic is scheduled on Thursday, Feb. 25, at Four Rivers Cultural Center beginning at 1 p.m. The clinic will be open to people in Phases 1a and 1b through Group 4. Please view the link for eligibility requirements. Additionally, vaccine recipients must live or work in Malheur County.
