Patients and visitors still must wear masks when at Sky Lakes Medical Center or any Sky Lakes clinic or facility.

All Oregonians age 5 and older can get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Second boosters are available at our COVID vaccine clinic for those who are eligible.

The CDC has updated it's booster guidelines. They now suggest you get a Pfizer or Moderna booster at least five months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series. Moderna boosters are authorized for all adults over the age of 18 at least five months after completing primary vaccination. Pfizer boosters are authorized for emergency use in individuals ages 12 -17 at least five months after completing primary vaccination.

The CDC recommends that some people, especially males 12-39 years old, wait up to eight weeks between the first and second doses of a Moderna or Pfizer primary series vaccine. Studies show that waiting a longer interval can reduce the risk of myocarditis following vaccination.
