COVID19 vaccines are a safe and effective way to help halt the spread of COVID19 and to protect members of our community. OHSU has worked closely with the state of Oregon and the Oregon Health Authority to vaccinate Oregonians. This has been a massive effort this year, with over 20,000 people getting vaccinated every day.
OHSU requested that members of the OHSU community help with these efforts. Kaylyn Devlin answered the call, helping out at the PDX airport vaccination site (see picture below). Dr. Devlin has spent many hours working in support of the vaccination campaign, even during the cold, rainy winter days. In May, Prof. Beatty got trained to vaccinate Oregonians and has helped out at the OHSU clinic (MPV location). As of May 14, more than 3.4 million doses of COVID19 vaccine have been administered to Oregonians (OHA website).
