COVID-19 Vaccine Information

New: Everyone age 16 and older can get a booster dose when they are eligible:

  • 6 months after their second dose of a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. If you are 16-17 years old, you are only eligible to get the Pfizer vaccine.
  • 2 months after a Johnson & Johnson vaccine dose if you are 18 or older.

Please visit OHA’s Vaccine Boosters and Third Doses page for more information.

Oregon continues to get the COVID-19 vaccine and it is now available to anyone over the age of 5. EOCCO wants to share information with you about when and where you can get the vaccine. Please click on the links below as a shortcut to the different sections on this page.

Frequently asked questions

When can I get the vaccine or booster?

The vaccine is now being offered to anyone 5 and older. (Pfizer is currently the only vaccine available for those under 12.).

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) has an online tool you can use to see if you are able to get the vaccine now.

The CDC recommends everyone age 16 and older get a booster dose when they are eligible:

  • 6 months after their second dose of a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and
  • 2 months after a Johnson & Johnson vaccine dose.
  • People 16-17 years old are only eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine.
  • Please visit OHA’s Vaccine Boosters and Third Doses page for more information.

Do I have to pay for the vaccine?

No. COVID -19 vaccines will be given to everyone at no cost. If you are asked to pay for a vaccine, the vaccine site may not be authorized.

Do not buy a COVID-19 vaccine to be shipped to you. You should only get a vaccine at an authorized vaccination site.

If someone tells you that you can pay to get the COVID-19 vaccine early or be put on a waiting list before your group is eligible, do not pay anything. No health department or vaccination site would give you the vaccine ahead of time if you paid for it.

If you get phone calls, texts or emails that say you need to buy a COVID-19 test before you get your vaccine, this may be a scam.

If I am under 18 years old, can I still get the vaccine?

Yes, people 5 years of age and older can get the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. You can get Johnson & Johnson, Moderna or Pfizer if you are 18 years or older.

Please make sure the location where you are getting your vaccine has Pfizer if you are under 18. You can also check out OHA’s COVID-19 vaccine information page for parents, guardians and people under 18.

What if I need a ride to get a vaccine?

EOCCO offers free rides through our non-emergent medical transportation (NEMT) program. Please call NEMT services at 1-877-875-4657. The office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. PT (9 a.m. – 6 p.m. MT). TTY users, please call 711. 

Where can I get the vaccine?

If you are part of a group that is eligible to get the vaccine now, we can help you find a vaccine event near you

You can also visit OHA’s website to find vaccine information by county or call 211 for more information.

What should I know before I get a vaccine?

You will have to get two doses of the COVID-19 Vaccine if you get Pfizer or Moderna. After you get your first Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, you should get a vaccination card that tells you when to get your second dose. 

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is only one dose.

What should I do before I go to get a vaccine?

Make sure that the vaccine clinic or site is accepting people in your eligibility group. 

Schedule an appointment if it’s required. Make sure you are scheduling your vaccine appointment through your local health department, local pharmacy or primary care provider’s (PCP) office.

  • You can call your local health department to make sure
  • Or you can call EOCCO customer service at 1-888-788-9821. TTY users, please call 711. The office is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. PT.

What are vaccines and are they safe?

A vaccine is medicine that can help your immune system fight off infections better and faster. They are tested carefully for safety.

COVID-19 vaccines are very effective. Please visit Oregon’s vaccine website for more information about vaccines and vaccine safety.

How can I stay safe before and even after I receive the vaccine?

  • Wear a mask or face covering in public places.
  • Keep a 6-foot physical distance.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often for at least 20 seconds.
