Vaccines in Oregon
OHA reported Friday that 48,028 new doses of COVID-19 vaccines were added to the state vaccination registry. Of that total, 28,686 doses were administered on Thursday and 19,342 were administered the previous days, but were entered in the vaccine registry on Thursday.
The current seven-day average is now 29,816 doses per day.
Oregon has administered a total of 2,048,515 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,518,646 first and second doses of Modern and 129,770 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of Friday, 1,685,321 people have completed a series of vaccines against COVID-19. There are 2,136,133 people who have had at least one dose.
Daily cumulative totals can take several days to complete, as suppliers have 72 hours to report administered doses and technical challenges have caused many suppliers to lag behind in reporting. OHA has been providing technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of their data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).
To date, 2,472,795 doses of Pfizer, 1,991,240 doses of Modern and 282,200 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to Oregon locations.
These data are preliminary and may change.
