Vaccination clinic in Medford, COVID hotline back online
Update: Due to declining volumes, the clinic and COVID hotline have closed.
After closing in June due to lack of demand, Asante’s Community COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic in Medford will tentatively reopen on a limited schedule Aug. 30. Plans are also in the works to reopen the Grants Pass vaccination clinic on weekends.
The Medford hours are 2 to 7 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Appointments can be scheduled through MyChart. The clinic will be staffed by volunteers who will administer only the Pfizer vaccine, which was recently approved by the FDA and is sold under the brand name Comirnaty. (Read the FDA’s FAQs.)
The clinic is currently offering first and second doses of the vaccine, and third doses only for people with compromised immune systems. Booster shots for the general public will be offered once approved by the FDA in mid- to late-September.
The COVID-19 hotline, also shut down in June, has resumed operations at the Contact Center, (541) 789-2813. Call volumes have already reached 400 a day.
