LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Lane County is set to host a mass vaccination clinic aimed at 16 and 17-year-olds this weekend.

The clinic, which will be at Lane Community College, is expected to give out about 3,000 Pfizer shots.

As of right now, health officials say people haven’t scheduled enough appointments to keep up with the amount of doses they plan to give out.

Jason Davis with Lane County Public Health said he thinks the main issue with people is the lack of knowledge about the event.

"We need parents' help. We need loved ones, friends," Davis said. "Help get your 16 or 17-year-old get signed up."

The process to schedule an appointment is the same as the previous mass vaccination clinics.
