Vaccinations in Oregon
Today, OHA reported that 31,325 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 15,280 doses were administered on May 28 and 16,045 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on May 28.
The seven-day running average is now 27,472 doses per day.
Oregon has now administered a total of 2,190,895 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,594,896 first and second doses of Moderna and 141,576 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of today, 1,831,484 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 2,230,411 people who have had at least one dose.
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.
The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 257, which is three fewer than yesterday. There are 56 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is three fewer 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.
