COVID-19 Vaccines

This is very exciting news! There are now two (and soon to be more) COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States. We strongly recommend that you get the vaccine if you are eligible.

Oregon has developed a plan for the order in which people can get the vaccine: Learn More Here

Hillsboro Pediatric Clinic will not be giving the vaccines out at our offices, this is due to the storage and handling requirements for the vaccines. Oregon Health Authority has set up a web site to help you confirm your eligibility and help you to find a location to get a COVID19 vaccine. This website is only in English at this time. It works best using the following browser: Safari, Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Firefox. Get Vaccinated Oregon

The current vaccines are only for people 16 years and older. There are COVID-19 vaccine trials ongoing for children as young as 12 years old. Soon there will be vaccine trials for younger children, too.
If you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, you can find information by visiting the Center for Disease Control website.
