ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Officials plan to vaccinate 600 Douglas County residents Saturday who fall within OHA’s Phase 1A Vaccine Sequencing Guidelines.

Aviva Health is holding a mass COVID-19 vaccination event for selected Douglas County citizens who fall within groups two and three of the Oregon Health Authority’s Phase 1A vaccine prioritization schedule.

The event is from 8 A.M. to 6 P.M. in Douglas Hall at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

This is not a public event – only pre-registered individuals who are in groups two and three of OHA vaccine distribution Phase 1A are eligible to receive the vaccination Saturday.

In cooperation with Douglas Public Health Network, Douglas County COVID-19 Response Team, Umpqua Health Alliance and other volunteers from across the county, Aviva Health intends to administer vaccinations to as many as 600 people.

A mass vaccination of this size and scale in Douglas County requires broad support from organizations and individuals well beyond the walls of Aviva Health.

Aviva Health acquired the supply of vaccines to be used Saturday from Mercy Medical Center and intends to hold similar events for the general public as more vaccine is available.

Those who qualify have already been registered by DPHN.

Individuals who arrive at the fairgrounds without proof of registration will not receive the vaccine.
