OHSU vaccination locations

Find sites below where people can get a vaccine. 

Need a second dose after getting your first dose elsewhere? We encourage you to call 833-647-8222, weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., to schedule. Bring proof of your first dose to your appointment. 

For ages 5-14: People ages 5-14 must be signed up for an appointment by a parent/guardian (if making an appointment instead of coming to a walk-in site). They also must come to the vaccination with a parent/guardian OR with written permission for a vaccine from a parent/guardian.

For ages 15-17: Under Oregon law, those who are at least 15 do not need a parent/guardian to consent to medical care. They may make an appointment (or choose a walk-in site) and come to a vaccination alone.

How you can schedule an appointment:

Who can get a booster shot?

In light of the omicron variant, the CDC recommends that all who qualify get a booster shot. The FDA and CDC have authorized booster shots of the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Mixing and matching is allowed.

You qualify for a booster shot if you are 18 or older and you:

  • Completed Johnson & Johnson vaccination at least two months ago OR
  • Completed Pfizer or Moderna vaccination at least six months ago.

Prepare for your OHSU vaccination, booster or additional dose

What to wear: Wear something that makes it easy to expose an upper arm for your shot.

Don’t come if you are sick:  Please do not come to your vaccination if you are sick or have symptoms that could be from COVID-19.

You do not need health insurance: You will receive a vaccine at no cost to you. You do not need to have health insurance. If you do have insurance, please bring your insurance card to your vaccination. Vaccine providers are allowed to charge your insurance company an administration fee. You will not be charged. If you do get any kind of bill, do not pay.

If it’s your second or third dose and your earlier doses were elsewhere: Bring proof of your first dose(s). You cannot get a shot without it.

Who can come with you: See OHSU's policy on support peopleService animals are allowed. Please leave pets at home.

What to expect at your OHSU vaccination, booster or additional dose

Accommodations for disabilities and language: When you arrive, ask any staff member for any of the following. You can also ask about other accommodations or modifications, and we'll do our best to grant them.

  • Language interpreter services
  • Whiteboard
  • Clear face masks
  • Braille and large-print vaccine information 
  • Vaccine information in languages other than English

Observation: After your shot, you will be asked to wait in an observation area for 15 or 30 minutes to make sure you don’t have an adverse reaction.

Second dose (if applicable): The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses — Pfizer after three or four weeks, and Moderna after four. If your first dose was elsewhere, you can schedule your second dose with your original provider, or you can call 833-647-8222 to schedule with OHSU.

Side effects: Learn about possible side effects and where to report them on our FAQ page.

Why aren’t vaccine providers wearing gloves? Gloves are not required for vaccinating, and medical gloves are in short supply. Regulators and medical experts agree that proper hand hygiene is an appropriate option instead. Learn more on our FAQ page.

Safety after your vaccination: You won't be fully vaccinated until it's been at least two weeks since your one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or since your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. During this time, you should continue wearing a mask, staying 6 feet from others and washing your hands often.
