COVID-19

– Updated: March 8, 2021 –

 

Patients who received their first vaccine dose with us on February 10, 11, & 16 will still be able to receive their second dose with us on March 10, 11 and 16. Your March appointment date and time was written for you on your vaccine card that you received after your shot.

 

Our team will also be making calls to confirm your second dose appointment date and time. The second dose appointments will be held at the same location as your first dose – High Lakes Upper Mill 929 SW Simpson Avenue, Suite 210 Bend, OR 97702.

 

For patients looking forward to their first dose…

Oregon Health Authority allocated 2,340 first-dose COVID-19 vaccines to Deschutes County for the week of March 1. All of those doses were administered at the St. Charles Vaccination Clinic at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds with recipients having made through this link. News reports show that the relatively small number of appointments filled up in less than an hour.

 

As of Monday, March 1, Deschutes County residents age 65 and older will be eligible to receive the vaccine. As soon as we have confirmation from the state that High Lakes Health Care will receive a vaccine supply, we will send an email like this, and will update our Facebook and Instagram pages. Please like and follow our social media pages so you have the latest High Lakes information as quickly as possible.

 

On March 1, Governor Brown announced the upcoming vaccine sequencing phases. Phase 1B, Group 6 will include adults 45–64 with one or more underlying health conditions with increased risk, migrant and seasonal farm workers, seafood and agricultural workers, food processing workers and people living in low-income senior housing, senior congregate and independent living. This group will become eligible to receive the vaccine beginning March 29.
