With a focus on prevention, we must continue to use all available tools to keep overall infections low and the spread limited.

  • Vaccines are the best measure to protect people from COVID-19, slow transmission and reduce the likelihood of new variants emerging. Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines—that means getting all recommended vaccines and booster doses when eligible.
  • Test if you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are showing symptoms.
  • Take precautions if you were exposed to COVID-19. Isolate when you are sick or have tested positive for COVID-19 (even if you don't have symptoms).
  • Learn how to protect yourself and others.

Reminder: Masks are still required in healthcare settings per the state health department guidelines.

Visitor Information

PeaceHealth is committed to providing the care our patients depend on. We've taken many steps to keep you safe when you visit our medical centers and clinics.

Visitor restrictions: PeaceHealth follows guidance from the CDC and local health departments and adjusts visitation restrictions based on county-level COVID-19 transmission rates to ensure the safety of our patients and caregivers. Please check the table below to see the restrictions at your local hospital or clinic. Please note that these may change as transmission levels change.

Symptom screening: When you come to a PeaceHealth hospital or clinic, you will self-screen for symptoms. We strongly encourage vaccination for any patient or visitor for whom it is medically advisable. Vaccines are the best way to protect yourself and others in the community.

Masks: All patients and visitors are required to wear a mask in every PeaceHealth building. We request you bring your own, but one will be provided if needed.

Vaccine Information

The CDC recommends that everyone stay current with the COVID-19 vaccine. 

COVID-19 vaccines through PeaceHealth
PeaceHealth offers Pfizer primary immunization and booster shots for patients at our primary care clinics. Appointments are required. To schedule, please call your primary care provider.

Please note that parents of minors 17 years of age and younger must provide consent to PeaceHealth for vaccination in Alaska and Washington. In Oregon, minors younger than 14 need parental consent; those 15 and older may provide their own consent. Verbal consent can be provided in person at the time of vaccination or over the phone when scheduling the appointment.

Other vaccine options
Other brands of vaccine and boosters are available through many community clinics and pharmacies. You can find locations by zip code at, by calling 1-800-232-0233 or by texting your zip code to 438829.

Please speak with your primary care physician if you have questions about the vaccines. Additional information is available on the CDC website.

Cost of vaccines
There is no out-of-pocket cost for you to get COVID-19 vaccines. The federal government pays for the cost of the vaccine itself regardless of immigration and insurance status. If you have public or private insurance, PeaceHealth will bill them for the cost of administering the vaccine. If you do not have insurance, the federal government offers healthcare providers a program covering vaccine administration costs.

Vaccine cards
If you lost your card, there are a few ways to replace it. If you got your shots at PeaceHealth, you can find your vaccination record in My PeaceHealth. If you got it somewhere else, contact them and ask for a new one.

You can also ask your state health department for help. Vaccine providers are required to report COVID-19 vaccination to their state's immunization information system.

Once you have your record, you may want to take a photo of it or consider other ways to protect and carry it.


Testing is important in preventing the coronavirus from spreading. Get tested if you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are showing symptoms.

If you are a PeaceHealth patient and you or a family member have symptoms, contact your primary care provider to ask about getting a COVID-19 test. We do not do walk-in testing. If you are admitted to a PeaceHealth hospital, we will test you for COVID-19 regardless of symptoms if the county where the hospital is located has a high, substantial or moderate transmission rate. 

There may be several options for getting tested in your community. Many drug stores and pharmacies sell at-home test kits. Some also offer free testing but may require an appointment. Use the links below to find a test near you.

Free at-home test kits may be available at


  • PeaceHealth uses a variety of treatments and therapeutics for COVID-19 patients. Treatments may include fully authorized or emergency use authorization (EUA) antiviral drugs and immune modulators. Doctors will determine the best option for a person based on how bad their symptoms are and their risk factors. Doctors may or may not use the treatments mentioned here. More information about these treatments is available from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
  • PeaceHealth primary care providers are currently prescribing Paxlovid through our clinics (this may change at any time as our knowledge of COVID-19 and treatments is evolving). Patients, with the guidance of their provider, must determine if Paxlovid is right for them given the potential benefits and risks. For more information on Paxlovid, please read the U.S. Food & Drug Administration Fact SheetOther treatments may be available for those who cannot take Paxlovid or do not meet the eligibility requirements. In all cases, we recommend that you speak with your primary care physician to determine what’s best for you.
