Klamath County adults: Help bring an end to the pandemic by getting vaccinated against COVID-19. Appointments are now available for all Klamath County adults at three vaccination clinics hosted by Sky Lakes Medical Center later this month.
Shots will be given to people 18 and older on April 22 and April 23 at the Sky Lakes Vaccination Clinic on the fourth floor of the original medical center. Sky Lakes Collaborative Health Center on the medical center campus will be the site of an April 24 vaccination clinic also for those 18 and older. The Oregon Health Authority will remove vaccination qualifying conditions beginning April 19.
You can be assured of a dose and minimum wait times by making a COVID-19 vaccination appointment. Call 1-833-606-4370 weekdays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to schedule your appointment. No walk-in slots or on-site appointments are available.
Sky Lakes will announce additional vaccination clinics for individuals 16 and 17 years old after getting confirmation of an adequate number of Pfizer vaccine doses. Pfizer is the only vaccine currently approved for the younger age group.
Why vaccinate? When enough people are immunized against COVID-19, the virus will be less able to spread, protecting you and those who love you.
In addition to reducing your own risk of getting COVID-19, getting vaccinated also will help protect the healthcare system. When infections surge, Sky Lakes nurses and doctors will have less capacity to care for the very ill. Staying healthy helps ensure that care will be available for those who need it.
