Vaccine Information

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.

What to do if you test positive?

Isolate at home:

Stay home and stay away from others, including the people in your own household.

  • If you’re sick, isolate for 5 days from when you started feeling sick AND make sure your fever is gone for 24 hours, without the help of medicine, before being around others.
  • If you don’t have symptoms, isolate for 5 days from the day you were tested.
  • If you are sick, take care of yourself, and keep in touch with your clinic or medical provider if your symptoms get worse.

You can be around others again after 5 days, if you feel better. You should wear a mask for an additional 5 days when you are around others.
