As of April 19, everyone in Oregon 16 and older can get a COVID-19 vaccine. The Moderna vaccine is only approved for ages 18 and older, while people 16 and 17 years old can only get the Pfizer vaccine

Lincoln County Public Health is now opening some clinics to walk-ins or standby lines. A walk-in appointment is when someone arrives at the clinic without an appointment and they sign to get an available dose at the clinic. Walk-ins may have to wait longer to get a dose depending on how many doses are available at the time you arrive.

Walk-ins are not guaranteed a dose. However, there are 600 appointments still available at the clinics listed below. Scheduling is still the best way to be sure you get a vaccine.

There are three walk-in options this week in the county. Here are the details for each (click on the sign up links below for more details:
