COVID-19 Vaccine Information

We are working closely with public health officials and following the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) guidelines to plan vaccine distribution. We are currently in the process of scheduling vaccinations for healthcare personnel. As supplies come in, we will continue to provide vaccinations to other eligible groups designated by the OHA. Please do not call to schedule a vaccination. Watch our website and social media channels for updates.

New Information About Our Services

Siskiyou Community Health Center is committed to the health and well-being of the community and will continue to care for our patients during the COVID-19 outbreak. It is our intention to avoid sending patients to the Emergency Room whenever possible so they can care for the most critical patients. In order to maintain the highest level of safety for our patients, staff, and health care providers, we’ve made some changes in protocol and have implemented the use of telemedicine visits when appropriate. For all patients seen in the office be assured we have a rigorous cleaning process of the entire clinic to prevent the spread of infection.

  • Patients are required to wear a mask of face covering for the protection of other patients and staff. If you are unable to wear a mask, please call us so we can make other accommodations for your visit.
  • For the foreseeable future, we are limiting the number of people accompanying patients to appointments. Only one person will be allowed to accompany a patient to an office visit.
  • Appointments for pregnant patients will continue as scheduled in-office.
  • Visits that your provider determines can be done via telemedicine may be changed to that format. Your appointment time will remain the same and you will be notified by phone of this change.
  • If your appointment is in-office, you will be screened for fever, new cough or new shortness of breath prior to being allowed inside. Once you check in, you will be given the option to wait in your car or in our lobby where all chairs have been placed 6 feet apart. Only patients with no symptoms will be allowed in-office visits.
  • We are working hard to keep communication open with all patients – whenever possible, please answer your phone if you see the call is from Siskiyou Community Health Center so we may speak with you directly and not have to leave a message.
  • Our pharmacies are open. Prescriptions can be delivered to your car if you are not feeling well. To request this service, please call ahead at (541) 472-4747 if you are in Grants Pass and (541) 592-2010 if you are in Cave Junction.
