CAREAssist preferred pharmacies that offer immunizations, offer the COVID vaccine.  CAREAssist clients may access the COVID vaccine anywhere that it is being offered and are not required to use a CAREAssist preferred pharmacy.  If you need assistance with obtaining a COVID vaccine, contact your CAREAssist preferred pharmacy, Medical Case Manager or your CAREAssist Case Worker.



CAREAssist is Oregon's AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP)

The Oregon Health Authority, CAREAssist Program, is responsible for the administration of Oregon's AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP).  CAREAssist provides access to life-saving medications used to treat Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and improve the overall health of people living with HIV who have limited resources or no health insurance coverage.


In addition, CAREAssist supports community partners with End HIV Oregon and HIV prevention efforts across the State. Oregonians with HIV are living longer, healthier lives with the help of HIV medications.  People who take daily HIV treatment, as prescribed, can maintain an undetectable viral load (meaning their HIV medications are working so well that there is an extremely low amount of virus in their blood). HIV positive people with an undetectable viral load have no risk of transmitting HIV to their sexual partners.  To find out more, visit: Undetectable = Untransmittable on the Oregon Health Authority, HIV Prevention website.
