COVID booster appointments now open to the public

Any person who wants to receive a booster COVID-19 vaccine from Cow Creek Public Health may now call to schedule their appointment.

The phone number to make an appointment is (541) 677-5535. If you are unable to speak directly with a team member of Cow Creek Public Health, leave a message. All voicemails will be returned within one hour, or the next business day if on a weekend or after hours.

Since early November, when boosters were first approved by the Centers for Disease Control, Cow Creek Public Health has administered 539 booster doses. At first, CCPH was only reaching out to individuals who received their COVID-19 vaccine primary series through the agency. Now, with all of those individuals called, CCPH has opened booster appointments to the public.

Qualifications for receiving a COVID booster have changed in the weeks since the first boosters were administered. Now, all adults (18 years of age and older) are approved to receive a booster shot if it has been six months or more since being fully vaccinated.

The CCPH Mobile Vaccine Site has relocated from Canyonville to Roseburg, in the parking lot of 2360 NE Stephens Street and will operate as a drive-thru location. Primary and booster vaccines are available with no appointment necessary from 9AM to 1PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with the following specifications: Adults vaccinations for Moderna or Johnson & Johnson will be on Mondays and Wednesdays; pediatric Pfizer (ages 5-11) vaccinations will be on Fridays. All those receiving a booster dose are asked to bring their CDC-issued vaccine card for updating, as well as identification.

Please keep in mind, the CCPH Mobile Vaccine Site will be closed at noon on Wednesday, December 22, as well as Friday, December 24 (Christmas Eve) and Friday, December 31 (New Year’s Eve), therefore Friday, December 17 is the only option in December for pediatric vaccinations.
