The Benton County Health Department announced plans for a community vaccination event on Friday, Oct. 21, in Philomath. Only the COVID-19 bivalent booster vaccine will be available at the clinic, which is scheduled to run from 4-7 p.m. at Clemens Primary School.

Dates are subject to change based on delivery and available supply, the county noted. Vaccines are available while supplies last. No appointment is needed.

The Benton County Health Department maintains a web page with up-to-date information on upcoming vaccination events.

In addition to the Philomath bivalent booster clinic, others include Oct. 22 at Monroe High School (1-5 p.m.) and Oct. 23 at the Boys and Girls Club of Corvallis (1-5 p.m.).

All vaccination events require masks, are wheelchair accessible and have interpretation services available. Those attending are asked to bring vaccination cards (or a record that shows previous doses). There are options for those who lost their vaccination card.

The COVID-19 vaccine is free and available to all eligible people. Identification or insurance does not need to be presented to be vaccinated. The vaccinations are open to anyone, not just Oregon residents. Consent of a parent or legal guardian is required for children under the age of 15 (forms are available at all events).For more information, go to the Benton County Health Department ‘s vaccination events page.
