Oregon Department of Human Services and Oregon Health Authority are notifying long-term care facilities and small congregate settings that their residents and employees can get no-cost COVID-19 vaccinations when a vaccine becomes available.
The registration deadline for this program is 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on Oct. 29.
The CDC has asked all states to share how they plan to distribute COVID-19 vaccine once a safe and effective vaccine is ready. OHA has submitted a draft plan to CDC. OHA’s plan will follow federal guidance for a phased approach. This means starting with vaccinations for critical groups, including people involved in the pandemic response and people at the highest risk for getting very sick. As more vaccine becomes available, there will be wider distribution to other high risk groups and the general public.
Playbooks describe the joint collaborative agreement between the Oregon Health Authority, COVID-19 Response and Recovery Unit and other state agencies with the intended goal of stabilizing the spread of a COVID-19 outbreak in a facility or work place.

The document below establishes the coordination and response efforts of the Department of Human Services (DHS), Aging and People with Disabilities (APD) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) when three (3) or more cases of COVID-19 are associated with a long-term care facility. This coordinated response will help to prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19 and, when it is possible, ensure that these facilities can continue to operate while protecting the public’s health. This coordinated agreement allows for proactive strategies to prevent further spread within in a facility.
