Updated Information on the Availability of the New Monovalent 2023-2024 COVID-19 Vaccines

The 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines are now ordered and delivered through the commercial market. Effective immediately, healthcare providers and COVID-19 vaccine providers will now order and receive the vaccines through these normal delivery channels. Previously, COVID-19 vaccine providers ordered the COVID-19 vaccines through the Oregon Health Authority or local COVID-19 vaccine hubs. 

The 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines may be difficult to locate and receive due to manufacturing and distribution delays. To find where people may receive the 2023-2023 COVID-19 vaccines, people should contact their healthcare provider, pharmacy, or federally qualified health center (FQHC). They can also search for a clinic by ZIP code by visiting vaccinefinder.org, or by calling 211 or visiting 211info.org.

Jackson County Public Health Immunization Clinic has a small amount of the 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines (Moderna and Novavax). Appointments are required due to the limited supply. Visit the Jackson County Public Health Immunization Clinic website for more information, or call 541-774-8209 to schedule an appointment.

Insurance plans will cover the 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires insurers to cover most ACIP-recommended vaccines without cost sharing. Some people are being unexpectedly charged for COVID-19 and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) vaccines. There are a few reasons why this might happen, and we always recommend checking with your insurer if you have questions. We understand the insurance landscape for vaccines can be confusing and frustrating, especially as we move out of the pandemic. Basic facts about coverage for COVID-19, RSV, and flu vaccine are available on the Oregon Health News Blog https://covidblog.oregon.gov/what-to-know-about-insurance-coverage-for-covid-19-rsv-and-flu-vaccines/.
