ONTARIO – The Malheur County Health Department will be host its usual vaccine clinic from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Four Rivers Cultural Center for all eligible people. 

Adults age 45 and up with underlying health conditions, agricultural workers, homeless people, pregnant people, and people displaced by wildfires became eligible last week. All adults over 65, medical workers, prison workers, and caretakers are also still eligible. 

Next week, frontline workers, those living in multigenerational households, and people ages 16 and up with an underlying health condition will become 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 addition, clinic attendees should be sure to wear a mask. 

There is no cost associated with the vaccine, nor does one need insurance, although people with insurance are encouraged to bring their cards for administrative fees.

Alternately, those eligible to receive the vaccine can also get in touch with the following providers to schedule an appointment:
