Clackamas Fire receives COVID-19 vaccines - 01/12/21

On January 11, 2021, Clackamas Fire District #1 (Clackamas Fire) began vaccinating frontline firefighters and paramedics, with plans to continue throughout the week. Four hundred doses of the Moderna vaccine has been made available through Clackamas County Public Health and will be used to vaccinate Clackamas Fire personnel and first responders from neighboring public safety agencies over the next few weeks. Those agencies include:

Gladstone Fire Department

Hoodland Fire District #74

Sandy Fire District #72

Life Flight Network

Gladstone Police Department

Milwaukie Police Department

Oregon City Police Department

Sandy Police Department

City of Happy Valley Code Enforcement

The vaccination process will include the use of Points of Distribution (POD) that are setup up to safely and efficiently move personnel through the vaccine process. The PODs will be setup and staffed internally by Clackamas Fire personnel representing our emergency medical and health and wellness departments.

Clackamas Fire is currently involved in community distribution for at-risk groups for the flu vaccine and has plans to assist Clackamas County Public Health in vaccinating members of the public for COVID-19, as doses become available and a timeline is established.

As firefighters and paramedics begin to be vaccinated, Clackamas Fire will remain diligent in taking the steps necessary, including the continued use of face coverings to keep our community safe.  Fire Chief Fred Charlton says, “Partnering with Clackamas County Public Health allows Clackamas Fire to access the needed vaccinations to help keep our first responders safe and healthy, as we continue to respond to the needs of the communities we serve.”
