Hood River County Health Department Health Officer Dr. Christopher Van Tilburg says Oregon Governor Kate Brown announcement after guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that the state will expand COVID-19 vaccination to include people age 65 and older won’t have a lot of impact in the short-term. Van Tilburg said supply of the vaccine will still be a driving force. Van Tilburg says they have given out roughly 1,000 vaccines in Hood River County between the health department, Providence Hood River, and the long-term care facility program with Walgreen’s. He says they are moving down into groups 2 and 3 in Phase 1a. The governor’s office and Oregon Health Authority will provide more details on the latest vaccine distribution plans, as well as how Oregon will continue to reach populations most vulnerable to COVID-19, on Friday.
