COVID Vaccine Clinic for ages 5-11
We vaccinated 299 children at our first COVID Vaccine Clinic!
The second COVID Vaccine Clinic for ages 5-11 is Saturday, December 4th.
Vaccines supplies are still limited, but as we can get more we will expand availability.
Please be patient with our staff as they are handling a large influx of phone calls right now in addition to very busy patient volumes. They come to work every day because of their commitment to caring for your children, and they appreciate your kindness.
These clinics will be held in a large space at Adventist Health.
See video & map for directions.
Before the Clinic
During the Clinic
After the Clinic
The clinic will be indoors.
It will be held at the hospital next to our office. See video and map below for directions.
Do not come if you have had a positive COVID test or a COVID exposure in the last 10 days, or are sick.
There will be temperature and symptom screening at the entrance.
Please do not bring extra people as space is limited; only one caregiver per family please.
Be dressed for the rain as you wait for screening.
Don't give acetaminophen or ibuprofen before the vaccine; this can blunt the body's immune response.
We may be in the hospital, but it is our familiar faces you'll see.
Once inside you will be checked in at the table.
You will then wait in a line outside the vaccination room.
We will have three vaccination stations.
You will need to wait 15 minutes after the vaccine to monitor for an allergic reaction (these are rare).
After 15 minutes you will be asked to leave the room to make space for others, but we will have a selfie station by the exit.
Put that vaccine card in a safe place before you leave. We will also have a record, and we report the vaccines to Oregon Alert.

There are some common side effects many children will have after the COVID vaccine. Here is a list and what you can do to manage them.
After the vaccine you may now give your child acetaminophen or ibuprofen for fever or pain.
Your child needs a second dose, at least three weeks from now.
Your child is not considered fully vaccinated until two weeks after the second dose. If you come back December 4th, that would be December 18th.
See on on December 4th!
V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to give personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Through v-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
This information helps CDC monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in near real time.
