Vaccines continue to be the safest and most effective way to protect from COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths. All Oregonians six months 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 the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are approved for anyone six months and older. We also offer the 3-dose series of the Pfizer vaccine for children six months to four years old.
If you already had your primary vaccine series, getting a booster is essential to maintain your protection against COVID-19. The new Bivalent boosters have been shown to protect individuals against the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 variants circulating today. Once you have your booster, it only takes two to three days to strengthen your immune response.
The Test to Treat program connects people at high risk of severe COVID-19 to treatments. Through the Test to Treat initiative, individuals can be tested for COVID-19, see a healthcare provider (including virtual visits), receive a prescription for an oral antiviral treatment if they are eligible, and have the prescription filled, all in one location. Siskiyou Community Health Center has the oral antiviral medications Paxlovid and Molnupiravir. These medications must be started within the first five days of symptoms. If you have tested positive or believe you have COVID-19, call (541) 472-4777 to see if you are eligible for one of these medications.
Established primary care patients: Medical triage will be able to assist you without an appointment.
Non-patients: A virtual or in-person appointment with our Walk-In Clinic will be required.

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.
