Douglas County's traveling COVID-19 testing and vaccination clinic will be setting up shop in Reedsport beginning Tuesday.
The drive-thru clinic will be located at 680 Fir Ave., adjacent to the Douglas County Courthouse Annex through Nov. 7. The clinic will be open from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. each day.
There is no preregistration required for the clinic, which will provide its services to anyone ages 12 or older. Those ages 12-14 will require written consent from a parent or guardian to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. First and second doses of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine are available.
The clinic does not provide a COVID-19 rapid test, but will offer a PCR test, with results returned within three to four business days.
More information about the traveling clinic is available by calling the Douglas County COVID-19 Hotline at 541-464-6550.
The Douglas County COVID-19 Response Team reported 46 new and presumptive cases Thursday and 25 new positive tests Friday.
Two more county residents — an 89-year-old woman and 70-year-old man — have died as a result of the coronavirus, raising the county's death toll to 255. Neither had been vaccinated.
There were 31 county residents hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms, 20 locally and 11 out of the area. At CHI Mercy Medical Center, there were just two coronavirus patients in the intensive care unit while the progressive care unit remained empty. Of all patients being cared for at Mercy, 10% were being treated for COVID-19 complications.
