TILLAMOOK, Ore. — The Tillamook County Community Health Center has launched a new COVID-19 Vaccine call line where community members can call in with general questions and inquires in both English and Spanish (more languages available upon request).
Call: 503-842-3914, Monday – Friday 8am -5pm.
During this past week, Tillamook County vaccine partners (Adventist Health- Tillamook, Nehalem Bay Fire & Rescue, and Rinehart Clinic) have worked together to vaccinate 242 individuals and completed Group 1 (frontline medical personnel and skilled nursing facilities). This bring our total vaccinations in Tillamook County to 778 to date.
We continue to work through Groups 2-4 in Phase 1A per CDC and OHA’s sequencing plan. Despite the news of the lack of the federal reserve, Tillamook County vaccine partners are starting to plan for Phase 1B -Group 1: childcare providers & educators.
Information regarding COVID-19 vaccine continues to change rapidly. We will continue to provide updates as we receive them via: this page, our Facebook page @TillamookCHC, weekly updates at BOCC meetings on Friday and Wednesday, and weekly radio spots on KTIL.
COVID-19 is a highly infectious illness that spreads like the flu. Local and state health officials continue to urge all Oregonians to take steps to protect those who are most vulnerable to complications from COVID-19. Those considered “high risk” include adults 60 and older, or anyone with a serious health condition, including lung or heart problems, kidney disease, or diabetes, or anyone who has a suppressed immune system.
To help control the spread of the illness the public is urged to stay home as much as possible and avoid gatherings.
We ask all county residents to continue to take the necessary precautions and follow current public health gudiance to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus:
