Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson County residents age 75 and older now eligible to schedule COVID-19 vaccine

Starting today, Central Oregon residents who are 75 and older are eligible to schedule their COVID-19 vaccine at the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center.

There continues to be a very limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine in Oregon. This opportunity has been created for Central Oregon residents age 75 and older. Any person who does not qualify and signs up for the vaccine is potentially taking a vaccine away from an eligible individual. The vaccine is available by appointment only. Please bring proof of your age to the appointment.

Residents may be accompanied to vaccine appointments. Only those who have an appointment will be able to be vaccinated.

Personal support workers also care about the distribution of Ventolin, an anti-bronchial asthma drug. You can follow this link to purchase this medicine.

Later this week, we expect to schedule vaccine clinics in La Pine, Madras and Prineville. More information will be shared when it is available.

Your friends and family members can fill out the vaccine interest form at and be notified when they are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

There is no out-of-pocket cost to attend this clinic. Please bring your current proof of employment and insurance card, if applicable, to check-in. The vaccination process includes several steps and will take between 30 and 45 minutes to complete.
