The Oregon Health Authority has expanded vaccine eligibility to more residents. Previously eligible groups still qualify, including those age 65 and older, health professionals, care givers and school district employees.
Beginning April 5, Group 7 will be able to receive the vaccine. Those eligible in that group include:
• Frontline workers as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
• Individuals living in multigenerational households
• Adults ages 16 to 44 with one or more underlying health condition with increased risk
A frontline worker is someone who has a job that puts them at higher risk for contracting COVID-19 because of regular close contact with others outside of their household (less than six feet); routine (more than 15 minutes) close contact with others outside of their household; and they are not able to perform their job duties from home or another setting that limits the close or routine contact with others outside their household.
Multigenerational household means a household where people from three or more generations live, such as a home where an elder lives with a parent and grandchild; or those 50 years and older residing with and caring for a relative who is not their own child (i.e. a grandchild, niece or nephew).
Additional eligibility now includes adults ages 45 to 64 with one or more underlying conditions as well as several subgroups. For a complete list of subgroups, please visit the CDC website.

• People living in low-income, senior, congregate and independent living facilities
• Sheltered and unsheltered individuals experiencing houselessness
• People displaced by wildfires
• Wildland firefighters
• Pregnant people 16 and over

• Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies
• Immunocompromised state (weakened immune system) from solid organ transplant or HIV
