Vaccines available for 12 and up

Sisters High School will host vaccination clinics on Friday, May 21, and Friday, June 11.

The regional High School COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics program will expand eligibility to provide vaccines for those age 12 and older at new and existing sites, through a partnership with pediatric medical providers and new authorization of the vaccine. In addition, three new free, walk-in clinic sites for youth vaccines have been added: Pilot Butte Middle School in Bend, Mosaic Medical’s main clinic at 2577 N.E. Courtney Drive in Bend and Mosaic’s Pediatrics clinic at 2084 N.E. Professional Court in Bend; and one free clinic with registration required at COPA, 760 N.W. York Drive in Bend.

Those ages 12-14 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to receive a vaccination. Unless noted, clinics will be open to first or second doses to anyone age 12-19, with no residency restrictions and availability times will be made available during scheduling.

Families can register now for Sisters area school-based clinics at the Mosaic Pediatrics webpage. Families can call 541-389-631 to register for a vaccine at Saturday clinics at COPA. Families are encouraged to register students in advance if planning to attend one of the clinics. Youth who did not receive a first dose at a high school clinic can do so at any of these events. Second doses will also be administered at these events, as scheduled.
