Gov. Brown announced today that she is accelerating the timeline for vaccine distribution in Oregon, moving earlier-defined priority groups sooner on the timeline and clarifying that all Oregonians 16 and older will be eligible to receive shots by May 1.
The new timeline is as follows:
- March 22: Migrant and seasonal farmworkers in counties where they are already working, and Oregonians 45 and older with underlying health conditions in counties that can attest a majority of their senior population has been vaccinated (was previously March 29)
- March 29: All migrant and seasonal farmworkers, seafood and food processing workers, residents in low-income senior housing, wildland firefighters, pregnant women 16 and older
- April 19: Frontline workers as defined by the CDC, multigenerational household members, and Oregonians 16 and older with underlying health conditions (was previously May 1)
- May 1: All Oregonians over 16 years old (was previously July 1)
