Vaccinations in Oregon
The OHA reported on Tuesday that it added 14,917 new doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to the State Immunization Registry. Among them, 9,235 doses of vaccine were administered on Monday, and 5,682 doses of vaccine were administered a few days ago, but they entered the vaccine register on Monday.
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).
Oregon has now received a total of 836,075 first and second doses of COVID-1
The St. Charles Health System reported that as of early Tuesday, a total of 23,329 COVID-19 vaccines had been administered.
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 Tuesday.
The number of COVID-19 hospitalized patients in Oregon is 165, 2 less than Monday. There are 44 COVID-19 patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) beds, three fewer than Monday.
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. No staffing restrictions are recorded in this data, and beds may be further restricted.
