PORTLAND, Oregon. (KTVZ) – There is a new death related to COVID-19 in Oregon, which increases the number of deaths in the states to 2502, the Oregon Health Service announced on Monday
OHA also reported 540 new confirmed and suspected cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 p.m. on Monday, resulting in a total of 186,877.
Vaccinations in Oregon
The OHA announced Monday that 17,897 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations have been added to the state immunization registry. Of this amount, 15,437 doses were administered on Sunday and 2,460 were administered in the previous days, but were entered in the vaccine register on Sunday.
The 7-day current average is now 33,1
Oregon currently administered a total of 1,647,730 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,317,295 first and second doses of Moderna, and 97,625 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of Monday, 1,295,638 people have completed a series of vaccines against COVID-19. There are 1,860,194 who have had at least one dose.
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 ILLUTIFICATION INFORMATION SYSTEM (IIS).
To date, 1,939,275 doses of Pfizer, 1,584,800 doses of Moderna, and 229,500 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to Oregon sites.
These data are preliminary and subject to change.
The OHA dashboard provides regularly updated vaccination data, and the Oregon dashboard is updated on Monday.
New features released on the vaccination board
The graphs for the country and counties presented on the COVID-19 vaccination control panel now show the seven-day current average values of administered doses of COVID-19 vaccines. This improves the exchange of information on administered doses over time and may be useful for showing trends for less populated counties.
The COVID-19 vaccination control panel now includes a switch that allows users to choose between two different population denominators: the general Oregon population and the Oregon population eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. The total population of Oregon includes all people in Oregon, while the eligible population includes only people aged 16 and over. To date, 42.9% of the Oregon population has been vaccinated with at least one dose of each COVID-19 vaccine, compared with 52.4% of 16-year-olds in Oregon.
The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 in Oregon is 351, which is six more than Sunday. There are 80 patients with COVID-19 in intensive care beds (ICU), which is four more than Sunday.
The total number of COVID-19 positive patient beds in the last seven days was 2354, an 18% increase over the previous seven days. The peak daily number of beds occupied by positive patients with COVID-19 in the last seven days was 351.
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.
