As per Oregon Health Authority's vaccination schedule, the farming community will be eligible for vaccines starting March 29. Fry Family Farm will be hosting a vaccination clinic for farmworkers from across this Valley on Saturday April 3, with priority given to the Latino community and to victims of September's fires. Rogue Community Health will administer the clinic with the backing of Jackson County Health. 200 doses of the one time Johnson & Johnson vaccine have been secured for this clinic and a reservation is required.
At this time only permanent farm workers are eligible for this clinic (not their families). Owners and managers who do not work shoulder to shoulder with their crews are not eligible though they can be added to a waiting list, which will be called upon if enough vaccines are available.
To participate and to learn more, please contact Joan Thorndike at Le Mera Gardens and Fry Family Farm.
