Vaccinations in Oregon
OHA reported on Wednesday that 30,994 new doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were added to the State Immunization Registry. Of the total, 21,621 doses were administered on Tuesday and 9,373 doses were administered the previous day, but entered the vaccine register on Tuesday.
The current 7-day average operation volume is 31
Oregon has currently administered 1,687,447 doses of the first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,334,561 doses of the first and second doses of Moderna, and 99,793 single doses of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine. As of Wednesday, 1,331,526 people have completed the COVID-19 vaccine series. 1,885,466 people have received at least one dose.
Since it takes 72 hours for providers to report the administered dose, and technical difficulties have caused many providers to lag in reporting, the cumulative daily total may take several days to complete. OHA has been providing technical support for vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of entering vaccine data into the state’s ALERT immune information system (IIS).
To date, 2,062,125 doses of Pfizer, 1,680,800 doses of Moderna, and 241,900 doses of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine have been distributed throughout Oregon.
These data are preliminary and may change at any time.
The OHA dashboard provides regularly updated vaccination data, and the Oregon dashboard was updated on Wednesday.
