Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself from COVID-19
It’s hard to predict how ill you will be if you get COVID-19. Some people may have mild illness, yet still develop long term side effects from COVID-19. Exposure to the virus also puts people at risk of death.
If you were previously infected with COVID-19, protecting yourself from reinfection by taking the vaccine can prevent you from getting severe disease.
If you haven’t had COVID-19, it’s safest to avoid infection by getting the vaccine.
You can find more about COVID-19 vaccination on the OHA webpage.

CDC data tracker issue update
OHA has relied on a daily U.S. Centers for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC) data update to report the number of people who need to receive a COVID-19 vaccination to reach Oregon’s goal of vaccinating 70% of people 18 and older.
Unfortunately, CDC is experiencing an issue with the data feed that contributes to its COVID data tracker dashboard, which Oregon uses to track the state’s progress towards 70%.
CDC is working to resolve the issue and anticipates having it fixed by June 15. The COVID data tracker is the only place where doses from all sources administered to Oregonians are reported, including doses administered by federal entities, as well as doses administered to people living in Oregon by providers in other states.
