A COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Clatskanie park drew a steady line of people in their vehicles on Wednesday morning, June 2.

Drive-Thru Vaccination Clinic

Vehicles lined up in Clatskanie Park for the COVOD-19 vaccination clinic.

The Shot

Officials at the drive-thru clinic said most of the people receiving the vaccine are getting their second shot.

The effort by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Oregon Health Authority and Columbia County Public Health continues at the park from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. through June 8.

Even though the COVID-19 cases are slowly declining in the county, the vaccination rate has not yet reached a point that would allow easing of health and safety restrictions, according to state health officials.

Columbia County remains at High Risk under the state's pandemic classifications.
