Vaccine Sequencing: Frequently Asked Questions
Right now, people in Phase 1a are being vaccinated. The OMB will share new information as it becomes available. In the meantime, here are answers to some frequently asked questions: I am in a Phase 1a group, where do I go?
The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is working with local public health, health care partners, and 211 to determine the best contacts in each community. OHA will post the community contacts on their COVID-19 website
as soon as they are available. Check your local public health website for additional information. If you are in Phase 1A (see the chart below), you are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Follow this link to find out how you can receive a vaccination in your county of residense. I don't know if I'm in Phase 1a; how do I check?
Please check the Oregon COVID-19 Vaccine Sequencing Plan
. For additional questions, email COVID19.firstname.lastname@example.org
Acupuncturists are in Group 4 of Phase 1a (see page 9 of Vaccine Sequencing Plan). Do I need to show any proof I'm in Phase 1a?
OHA does not require proof and does not plan to request verification from vaccinating providers. Vaccine providers themselves may require an individual to declare in some way they are in a Phase 1a group. I've been turned away from getting a vaccine by a COVID-19 vaccine provider. What do I do now?
If you think you fall under Phase 1a, please contact your local public health department to be connected to a vaccine provider.
