ONTARIO – The Malheur County Health Department will be running its usual vaccine clinic from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday at the Four Rivers Cultural Center for all eligible people. 

Newly eligible this week are adults ages 45-64 with an underlying health condition, agricultural workers, homeless people, pregnant people, and people displaced by wildfires. Adults over 65, medical workers, prison workers, and caretakers are also still eligible.

Those considering attending the clinic should be prepared to stand outside in line or have someone else stand in line for them, and are invited to bring something to sit on. In . . .
