Deshut County jump in case of counting to 85, due to delays in some laboratory reports in recent weeks
PORTLAND, Oregon. (KTVZ) – There are 10 new deaths related to COVID-19 in Oregon, which increases the state’s mortality to 2,726, the Oregon Health Service said Thursday.
OHA also reported 370 new confirmed and suspected cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 p.m. on Thursday, resulting in a total of 204,291.
Interim update for the time of issue of this daily news release
To align with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC )’s daily update on the number of people in Oregon over the age of 18 who have received at least one dose of their COVID-1
The CDC records the number of people in Oregon over the age of 18 who received at least the first dose daily, usually by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
The OHA then retrieves data from the CDC website at 3 p.m. Pacific time each day and subtracts the number of people aged 18 and over who received at least one dose from the Oregon target of 2,345,823 (70% of those over 18). years). This calculation shows how many people over the age of 18 still need to be vaccinated to reach the 70% Oregon target.
OHA will update the website’s banner to reflect these figures by 5pm Pacific Time every day.
Note: If the CDC has not updated its website by 3 p.m., Pacific Time, when OHA downloads the data, OHA messages will add a note to this daily press release and on the Governor’s website dashboard stating that the CDC website is not updated and OHA will update the banner and dashboard at 9 a.m. Pacific the next day.
Vaccinations in Oregon
The OHA announced Thursday that 27,113 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations have been added to the state immunization registry. Of these, a total of 11,182 doses were administered on Wednesday and 15,931 were administered in the previous days, but were entered in the vaccine registry on Wednesday.
The current 7-day average is 15,761 doses per day.
Oregon currently administered a total of 2,337,634 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,659,139 first and second doses of Moderna, and 153,424 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of Thursday, 1,991,717 people had completed a series of vaccines against COVID-19. There are 2,303,485 people who have received at least one dose. The number of Oregonian adults who need vaccinations to reach the 70% threshold is 93,234.
Note: The OHA is working to determine why the CDC update for COVID-19 vaccination on Thursday shows minimal change. We will have a more complete update on Friday.
A daily countdown can be found on the OHA website.
Cumulative daily amounts can take several days to finalize, as providers have 72 hours to report applied doses, and technical challenges have forced many suppliers to lag behind. OHA provides technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of entering their data into the state’s ILULTIFIC Immunization Information System (IIS).
To date, 2,861,055 doses of Pfizer, 2,173,680 doses of Moderna, and 299,000 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to locations in Oregon.
These data are preliminary and subject to change.
The OHA dashboard provides regularly updated vaccination data, and the Oregon dashboard was updated on Thursday.
The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 in Oregon is 173, which is nine more than Wednesday. There are 41 patients with COVID-19 in ICU beds, which is five more than on Wednesday.
The total number of COVID-19 positive patient beds in the last seven days was 1,328, which is a 22.3% decrease compared to the previous seven days. The peak daily number of beds occupied by positive patients with COVID-19 in the last seven days was 219.
The total number of patients in hospital beds may vary between reporting times. The figures do not reflect the intake per day or the length of hospital stay. Staff restrictions are not reflected in these data and may further limit the capacity of the bed.

St. Charles Bend reported 22 patients with COVID-19 at 4 a.m. Thursday, with four in the intensive care unit, all on ventilators.
Public health: cooperation is key
On Friday, One Community Health will administer Pfizer vaccines at The Dalles, while offering free food and live music to all who attend the event. Preventive health manager
Gladys Rivera readily admits that Friday’s event is a holiday rather than an official clinic because Wasco County has almost reached 65% vaccination rate.
Rivera attributes the vaccination success to the clinic’s great partnership with OHA, as well as with other partners in the community, including manufacturers, employers and local businesses.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has deployed three mobile vaccination units in rural Oregon communities that have successfully vaccinated more than 2,500 people nationwide.
“Cooperation is really the key to making all this happen,” Rivera said. “He relies on all these partners and really shares the burden.”

Note: Due to delays in laboratory reports, OHA received 767 electronic laboratory reports (ELRs) on Wednesday 2021 for Deschutes County. The reports are from April 17, 2021 to June 9, 2021. As a result, the number of cases, the total ELR values and the percentage positivity are higher in Deshut County for Wednesday than expected.
Morgan Emerson, a public information officer with the Deshuts County Health Service, said the delay in those reports was due to an error identified with laboratory reporting.
