Vaccines continue to be the safest and most effective way to protect from COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths. All Oregonians five years and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. If you are 14 and under, you must be with a parent or guardian. Siskiyou Community Health Center offers Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. The Pfizer vaccine is approved for anyone five years and older while the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are approved for adults 18 and older.
If you have already had your primary vaccine series, getting a booster is essential to maintain your protection against COVID-19. Vaccine boosters have been shown to protect individuals dramatically against the Omicron variant. Once you have your booster, it only takes two to three days to strengthen your immune response.
Note: Our vaccine clinic is now inside during the winter months. Don’t forget to get your flu shot while you’re here.
Siskiyou Community Health Center has a limited supply of oral antiviral medication for the prevention of severe COVID disease in those who are infected with the SARS CoV-2 virus and are at the highest risk. Medications currently available must be started within the first five days of symptoms. Speak to a Siskiyou Community Health Center provider for more information.

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.
We offer same-day COVID-19 testing for our patients, including patients of our Walk-In Clinic. We also offer travel testing on a limited basis (excluding Hawaii). If you are seeking testing, have symptoms or exposure to COVID-19:
