- Covid 19 Vaccine: The Oregon Health Authority is now providing Pfizer’s two-dose COVID-19 vaccination for individuals age 12 and older. The Oregon Convention Center is now open for FREE vaccinations: you can walk in without an appointment or you can schedule an appointment through the Student-based Health Center on the David Douglas High School campus.
Or to schedule your own appointment, see operating hours and get additional information at: https://all4oregon.org/

Immunizations and flu shots at Student Health Centers:
Three Multnomah County Student Health Centers are open and providing immunizations (and flu shots). These shots are especially important this fall. Because of COVID-19 we want to prevent as many other illnesses as possible. If your student is missing immunizations, now is the time to catch up. Exclusion day is coming soon! Even during distance learning your student may be excluded if they are not caught up on immunizations.
Any Multnomah County K-12 youth can receive these services at any of our three open centers, and there are no out of pocket costs. We take all types of insurance and will serve you if you’re uninsured. Visit our website for more information.
