Rates Up, New Clinic Open In Jackson County: COVID Q&A


Two punches hit Jackson County right in the pandemic in one day: new-case numbers climbed into a danger zone, and Oregon stopped giving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

This week, the county, state, and FEMA open a shared Community Vaccination Center, the Vaccination Equity Center, at the Expo in Central Point. Dr. Jim Shames is the Medical Director atJackson County Health and Human Services. He visits once a week to catch us up on COVID-19 issues and current concerns.

County Health Promotion Manager Tanya Phillips joins the discussion, along with Jeremy Hollen from FEMA. Ask your question at 800-838-3760 or JX@jeffnet.org.
