Families of Frontline Workers Eligible for PDX Red Lot Vaccine Appointments
Great news for frontline workers! The special website for dedicated appointments at the PDX Red Lot drive-thru clinic now has slots added for the weekend of April 16-19. Even better, families of frontline workers are eligible to register using the same site. Per the Oregon Health Authority, this means “age eligible family members in the same household.”
IMPORTANT: You must schedule an appointment and arrive at your designated time to get vaccinated. Advance registration is required – do not show up at the clinic without an appointment.
As a reminder, we expect to have 1,000 dedicated appointments per day of clinic operations and appointments will be added on a weekly basis as vaccine allocations are determined. Be sure to register early: On Thursday, April 15 at 6 a.m., appointment remaining unfilled for Friday and Saturday will be released, and on Friday, April 16 at 6 a.m., appointments for Sunday and Monday will be released.
For security reasons, the appointment registration link will expire periodically. The updated link will be shared in this newsletter as it becomes available – please encourage your PDX co-workers to sign up now.
If you don’t have internet access or your primary language isn’t English, you can call OHSU 833-OHSU-CCC (833-647-8222) to schedule an appointment. Be sure to tell the OHSU operator that you’re affiliated with the Port of Portland, even if you're not a Port employee but you work in a Port facility such as PDX.
Finally, we recommend that you bring your employee badge or another form of employment verification, as you may be asked to show it when you arrive at the clinic.
