PORTLAND, Ore. — There are seven new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,935, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.
Oregon Health Authority reported 1,785 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 238,463.
Vaccinations in Oregon
Today, OHA reported that 8,660 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 2,727 were initial doses and 1,073 were second doses administered on Aug. 12. The remaining 4,828 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Aug. 12.
Oregon has now administered 2,713,474 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,805,823 first and second doses of Moderna and 188,400 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
As of today, 2,542,684 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,345,390 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.
Cumulative daily totals can take several days to finalize because providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused lags in providers reporting updated information. 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).
These data are preliminary and subject to change.
Updated vaccination data are provided on Oregon’s COVID-19 data dashboards and have been updated today.
For the third day in a row, Oregon has set a new record for COVID-19 hospitalizations. The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 733, which is 63 more than yesterday.
The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.
