Note: Oregon continues to require masks in healthcare settings, including at La Clinica.
La Clinica offers COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, including boosters, and vaccine to protect against the flu.

Frequently asked questions
Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe and effective?
Vaccination is the safest way to protect yourself from COVID-19. We know this disease can make you extremely sick or even kill you. Three independent groups of scientists checked to make sure COVID-19 vaccines work and are safe before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized them for emergency use. Oregon teamed up with neighboring states for one more review to make sure the vaccines here meet the highest standards. All of the authorized and approved vaccines are effective, especially at preventing serious illness and death.
Which vaccine does La Clinica offer?
Can I get COVID-19 from the vaccine?
No. None of the vaccines have live coronavirus, the virus that causes COVID-19, in them. The vaccines cannot make you sick with COVID-19. Like many vaccines, COVID-19 vaccinations might give you a sore arm and even some redness or swelling where the shot was given. Some people also have tiredness, headache, joint or muscle pain, fever, or chills. These are signs the vaccine is working and your body is gearing up to protect you. You might have more symptoms after your second dose, but it is important to get both shots. Getting a booster shot is recommended to keep your level of protection high.
How much does COVID-19 vaccination and testing cost?
- Vaccine is available at no cost to you. If you have insurance, La Clinica will bill your insurance for giving the shots. If you don’t have insurance, a federal fund will cover the cost.
- Testing is available at no cost in most but not all cases. The Oregon Health Plan and most private insurances cover it fully. For those who are uninsured, our income-based sliding scale will determine cost. For questions about your situation, call 541-535-6239 and ask for help with fee questions.
After I’m vaccinated can I stop wearing a mask, hug friends and family who don’t live with me, go to restaurants, and travel?
Please continue to follow safety guidelines and wear masks where required, including our health centers. You can track community spread and learn more about protecting yourself and your community from the CDC.
