211info call the fixed phone to make an appointment
Individuals who enter their primary contact or preferred contact as a landline in the Get Vaccinated Oregon tool can receive a call from the staff at 211info as early as today.
Approximately 500 people have registered with GVO, of which fixed-line telephones are used as primary or preferred contacts. Some of these people also listed cell phone or email contacts and may have contacted them for a vaccine appointment. 211info staff will give priority to contact 260 people who have not yet contacted OHA.
The staff of 211info will try three methods to contact the registrant, including leaving a message or calling back at a specific time. During the call, 211info employees will provide vaccine information and arrange vaccination appointments with qualified personnel.
In response to partners’ concerns about partners that let the state build automated phones, landline phone registration was stopped in the “Oregon Get Vaccination” tool.
The person answering the call will see the number 503-416-2702 on their caller ID. The caller will also identify himself as a 211info caller on behalf of OHA.
211info staff will not require social security numbers or financial information to schedule vaccinations, so this information should not be provided. Health insurance information may be required, but not required. The vaccine is free.
Individuals who have not registered for the “Get Oregon Vaccinations” tool can continue to contact 211info by dialing 211 or 866-698-6155 (toll free). For TTY, please dial 711 and call 1-866-698-6155.
Vaccinations in Oregon
The OHA reported that it added 38,373 new doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to the State Immunization Registry on Wednesday. Of the total, 23,834 doses were administered on Tuesday and 14,539 doses were administered the previous few days, but entered the vaccine registration on Tuesday.
Oregon has currently administered 914,067 doses of Pfizer’s first and second doses, 850,236 doses of Moderna’s first and second doses, and Johnson & Johnson’s single dose of 41,187 doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
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 its data input into the state ALERT immune information system (IIS).
To date, 1,170,585 doses of Pfizer, 1,086,800 doses of Moderna, and 87,400 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 has been updated today.
There were 139 COVID-19 patients hospitalized in Oregon, the same as Tuesday. There are 36 COVID-19 patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) beds, one more than Tuesday.
Between reporting times, the total number of patients in the bed may fluctuate. These figures do not reflect the number of hospital admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing restrictions are not included in this data and may further restrict beds.
