UPDATE: Northern Light Mercy Hospital vaccination locations
Northern Light Mercy Hospital announced additional COVID-19 vaccination sites today as well plans to wind down the mass vaccination clinic it operates at the Portland Expo by June 18. Since it first opened on March 2, the clinic at the Expo has fully vaccinated more than 21,000 people.
Beginning in June, the Expo clinic will no longer be open to first dose walk-ins and will shift to providing second doses only. For those who have received their first dose at the Expo, second doses will be provided there on Friday’s in June from 8 am to noon. Second dose Pfizer walk-ins will also be accepted during these Fridays for those who may have received their first doses elsewhere.
“This clinic has truly been a community effort,” said Melissa Skahan, VP of mission integration at Mercy Hospital. “The focused planning of our team, the tremendous work of hundreds of dedicated volunteers, and strong partnerships with the state, city, and many local organizations all played integral roles in carrying out this vital community mission.”
