Oregon has now administered 2,108,628 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,541,986 first and second doses of Moderna and 133,763 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of today,1,740,904 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 2,172,150 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).
To date, 2,499,705 doses of Pfizer, 1,992,640 doses of Moderna and 282,600 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.
