Evergreen's Safety Measures

Prepare for your vaccination at Evergreen Family Medicine
(first, second, or single dose)

Insurance Card: You will receive a vaccine at no cost to you. You also do not need to have health insurance. If you do have insurance, please bring your insurance card to your appointment. Vaccine providers are allowed to charge your insurance company an administration fee. You will not be charged. If you do get any kind of bill, do not pay.

Will my Evergreen Doctor provide an exemption for the Covid Vaccine?
There are two 

There are two categories to consider exception from Covid-19 Vaccine requirements. The first is Religious Exception and the other Medical Exception. Forms for both are available on the Oregon Health Authority website.

Evergreen Family Medicine is not involved in religious exception. This is entirely between you and your employer.

 

Evergreen Family Medicine offers the following guidelines regarding Medical Exception:

 

1. Medical Exceptions will rarely be granted.

 

2. All exception consideration will require a face-to-face visit with their EFM provider to consider their personal health history.

 

3. A scheduled visit does not guarantee an exception will be granted.

 

Evergreen Family Medicine did not create this vaccine mandate. We are subject to the State of Oregon executive orders, as are our patients. State agencies have made it clear medical exceptions will be scrutinized.

Urgent Care News Review

Evergreen Meets Covid Challenges
 
Evergreen’s goal was clear during Covid. Treat the sick while protecting the well.  Not simple, but attainable with careful planning and a great Urgent Care team.
Early on, EFM Administration afforded the Urgent Care team the ability to be proactive and innovative in their approach.  Working closely with other departments, policies and protocols were set in place preparing for every possible scenario.
When the county began to fall ill, EFM’s Urgent Care planning and resources were critical. Flexibility, cohesiveness, accumulating knowledge and working with community partners allowed them to stay one step ahead. EFM was screening patients prior to the first reported US illness and prepared for shortages, closures and restrictions weeks before they were mandated.  
Staff members worked together to create a mobile exam room to facilitate curbside and care home visits.  Providers extended telehealth to evaluate patients unable to come to clinic.  Daily workflow changes and maximizing technology ensured separation of ill patients from well ones.
EFM’s Urgent Care team will continue to innovate and be available for whatever 2021 brings.  Urgent Care managers promised, “we will be here in the clinic, we will be curbside, rain or shine, we will be wherever the community needs us to be.  We will continue to earn the trust the public has given us”.
