There are five new COVID-19-related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,618, Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.
OHA reported 509 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 198,356.
Vaccinations in Oregon
Today, OHA reported that 37,113 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 21,756 doses were administered on May 21 and 15,357 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on May 21.
As of today, there are 2,151,076 people who have had at least one dose of a vaccine. A total of 1,578,080 have received a second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.
The seven-day running average is now 30,551 doses per day.
Oregon has now administered a total of 3,735,652 vaccine doses, which includes: 2,071,311 first and second doses of Pfizer; 1,531,061 first and second doses of Moderna; 131,572 single doses of Johnson & Johnson; and 1,708 doses that were administered, but for which vaccine product information was not specified.
Cumulative daily totals can take several days to finalize because providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused many providers to lag in their reporting. 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.
OHA’s dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data, and Oregon’s dashboard has been updated today.
