Portland Public Health to Offer COVID-19 Vaccine at India Street Health Center

public health update

Portland Public Health will be offering the COVID-19 vaccine at its 103 India Street location starting next week, with the single dose Janssen vaccine from Johnson & Johnson available.  

The vaccine will be made available to the general public, as well as for clients of the Portland Community Free Clinic, the STD Clinic, and the Needle Exchange Program which are all provided at that location. 

“Providing the COVID-19 vaccination aligns with Portland Public Health’s mission to promote health and protect the residents of Portland,” said Portland Public Health Director Bob Fowler. “This is one spoke in the wheel in combating the COVID-19 pandemic and it is a vital one.”

That sentiment was echoed by the clinic’s Medical Director, Dr. DeMatteo. Dr. DeMatteo has been involved in community vaccination since December and when the opportunity to hold clinics through the City of Portland became a reality, she was ready to welcome it.  

“We are happy to be able to provide low barrier access to COVID-19 vaccination through the India Street Clinic,” said Dr. DeMatteo. “This is an important addition to enhancing the health and safety of our community.”

The vaccine will be available at no charge to all community members with no residency requirements. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact the Portland Community Free Clinic at 207-874-8982.
