Vaccines Delayed Lincoln County

Lincoln County Public Health has learned from the Oregon Health Authority that vaccine allocation will be smaller than anticipated and delayed.

Lincoln County will only receive 500 prime (1st) doses, and they will not arrive in time for our Tuesday clinics due to the federal holiday. These vaccine shipments come directly from the federal distribution program and delivery is dependent upon their schedule.

Due to this development, the Tuesday, Feb. 16 clinics will be postponed. There were some no-shows and extra doses at today’s clinic at the Lincoln County Commons (Fairgrounds) in Newport. Public Health staff began calling people who were scheduled for next Tuesday’s clinic in Newport and were able to bring 53 of those scheduled into today’s clinic.

Public Health will contact all of those scheduled for Tuesday’s clinic to explain this development and will also contact them as soon as we get the vaccines and are able to schedule another clinic. The health department thanks the community for their continued interest and patience in getting vaccinated.

Please don’t abuse the anonymity we provide or we will block your access to this website. Have fun and thank you for engaging in discourse on our site.


  1. After doing quite a bit of my own research, I feel these vaccines can not be trusted. There are many types, some good, some bad, some put out just for money in the pockets of “bad people” so I am watching and waiting and will not fall into the “sheep routine” and take my chances. Too much going on in the world right now and we are living in dangerous times.

  2. I’m going to have to disagree. This covid b.s. is an excuse for everything,
    from slow mail to putting people out of work.
    This vaccine should be mandatory. Sorry, but if you aren’t part of the solution,
    you’re part of the problem.

  3. James, I’m just curious about where you got your “research” information? As I’m thinking about my very elderly parents, should I be taking my advice from you, or from medical professionals? I suppose I’d also have to ask you what your educational and professional background is, if I’m to consider taking advice on Covid vaccines from you. Just trying to be objective here, buddy. Plenty of conspiracy fears being passed around like actual facts these days, and one can’t be too careful about where one gets his or her advice.

  4. Phil K, a comment some twit makes about doing his own research is
    ludicrous, Faucci changes his mind like the wind, I’m sure James is a
    closet virologist.
    Attitudes like James is exactly why we are never going back to normal,
    he and others like him will spread covid around without any thought
    about anything else but their own self assured delusions.

  5. Sustainable Development Goal 3 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is to “ensure healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages”. The associated targets aim to reduce the global maternal mortality ratio; end preventable deaths of newborns and children; end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other communicable diseases; reduce mortality from non-communicable diseases; strengthen the prevention and treatment of substance abuse; halve the number of deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents; ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health-care services; achieve universal health coverage; and reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and pollution.

  6. Kevin, everyone sees your constant ranting and raving on these sites with such unbecoming comments, perhaps you could spend more time learning a few behavior words of praise at the library. As far as my comment above, I have two sisters in GB who I speak with. They agree and would also never take the vaccine. It is very sad to see someone so bored they need to call other concerned American citizens such names.

  7. And I have emphysema. You are still a twit. As well as part of the problem.
    I’m far from bored, it only takes a few minutes to catch up on the rampant
    idiocy permeating society. People like you are a threat to solving this crisis.

  8. The comments here are a perfect example of why we are having issues in this country. No one seems to be able to debate respectfully. If someone disagrees, it tends to end up with mudslinging and name calling. How productive.

    If you rob someone of their dignity, you shut down the conversation. Period. End of story. Every single time. It would appear to me that the adults in the room need learn how to communicate. Because whatever this is that I read above is not it.

    How can any meaningful change ever happen if everyone is at each other’s throats? Like it or not, we ALL have to live together. There must be some give and take, and it starts with treating one another with respect.

    This idea of, “I’m right and you’re wrong,” gets us nowhere. Meanwhile, the world is watching us act like children. And somehow, we demand a place on the world stage. It starts right here with us, not our politicians (who don’t even care about us or know we exist).

    Look inward, folks; we can debate without acting like fourth graders.

  9. I’ll tell you what- first I don’t need advice from anyone.
    Secondly- soon, I’m going to be asking my customers as a tradesperson
    if they’ve been vaccinated, if not, I’m going to hang up.
    Third- I don’t need sympathy from anyone.
    Especially some twit that is spreading doubt and disinformation
    about researching the vaccine and deciding not to get it.
    Now, I’m going to check my entomology site and talk about something
    real scientists discuss- the prehistoric origins of Trogonoptera and how
    continental drift and plant dispersal has split the genus.
