Top things to know:

  • Vaccines and booster shots are safe.
  • Vaccines are free of charge for all Oregonians ages 12 and older.
  • Boosters shots are also free of charge. See who can get a booster.
  • Vaccines are doing an excellent job of preventing severe illness from COVID-19. If you have had two shots of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you remain fully vaccinated. You do not need to rush to get a booster.
  • Those ages 12-14 must come to their vaccination with a parent/guardian OR with written permission for a vaccine from a parent/guardian. Under Oregon law, those 15 and older do not need a parent/guardian to consent to medical care.
  • You do not need:
    • To be an OHSU patient to get a vaccine or booster shot.
    • To have a Social Security number or Oregon ID to get a vaccine or booster shot.
    • Health insurance. If you do have insurance, please bring your insurance card. 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.
  • Language help and translation will be available.

Make an appointment for a booster shot

We have reserved slots especially for the Black/African American, Asian, Latino, Pacific Islander, Native American and other communities. 

Though we will do our best to serve anyone who walks up at our community vaccine events for a booster shot, we appreciate appointments so we can make sure we have enough supplies. Our main goal remains getting first shots to people who are unvaccinated.

How to prepare for your vaccination or booster shot

Insurance card: You will receive a vaccine or booster shot at no cost to you, and you do not need to have health insurance. If you do have insurance, please bring your insurance card to your vaccination. Providers are allowed to charge your insurance company a fee to cover the cost of providing the vaccine. This fee may temporarily appear in your MyChart account, but you will not be billed. If you do get any kind of bill, do not pay.

If it’s your second dose and your first dose was elsewhere: Bring proof of your first dose. You cannot get a second dose without it.

If it’s a booster shot: Bring your vaccine records. You cannot get a booster shot without them. If needed, see "How to replace lost vaccine records" on our vaccine page.

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.

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