Winter weather continues to delay COVID-19 vaccinations in Oregon and Southwest Washington.

THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR:

The mass vaccination site at the Oregon Convention Center remains closed Sunday, with plans to open at 9 a.m. Monday, a two-hour delay.

People who had appointments between 7 and 9 a.m. will be rescheduled later on Monday, when there is capacity. The health systems running the clinic say they will contact people who had early morning appointments to assist with rescheduling.

In southwest Washington, the mass vaccination site at the Clark County Fairgrounds will reopen on Tuesday.

People who had first dose appointments cancelled on Friday or Saturday can get the vaccine when the clinic reopens on Tuesday. The Washington State Department of Health says staff on site will honor a first dose appointment any time during operating hours, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Salem Health cancelled vaccination clinics in Salem and Woodburn Saturday due to the winter weather. People are being asked to reschedule using MyChart.
