Many people in Oregon are wondering when they will be able to get their vaccines, and how they will know when it’s their turn. It can be frustrating to wait, but right now, people in Phase 1a are being vaccinated. We 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?
We don’t have a central phone number yet, but Oregon Health Authority (OHA) is working with local public health, health care partners and 211 to determine the best contacts in each community. We will post the community contacts on our COVID-19 website as soon as we have them. Check your local public health website to see if they have additional information.
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.
I’m an education worker. When will I get vaccinated?
Childcare, K-12 school and school district staff will be in the first group of Phase 1b, after Phase 1a is complete. Information on where and when to get vaccinated will be provided as soon as it’s available.

Washington County Information
- January 13, 2021
We know there are many dentists, optometrists, mental health providers, massage therapists and other health care providers who still don’t have access to the COVID-19 vaccine. That’s why we are partnering with the other metro counties and the region’s large hospital systems to ensure access for everyone in the state’s Phase 1A priority group. Employers and solo practitioners can now fill out a simple form to be matched with a healthcare system that has agreed to vaccinate employees. Learn more in English and Spanish.
