On Sept. 13, 2022 the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) announced the availability of bivalent COVID-19 vaccine boosters in Oregon. These boosters are recommended for anyone ages 12 and older who has completed a primary COVID-19 vaccine series.
Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the best way to protect our school communities and keep schools open. OHA and the Oregon Department of Education recommend everyone interested in receiving the new booster make a plan and get vaccinated. OHA’s COVID-19 blog and the Get Vaccinated Oregon site have information to help. Sharing vaccination information with your staff and school communities is another way to protect their health and keep every student learning in-person, every school day.
