OHA reported that 20,401 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry.

Of this total, 8,812 doses were administered on June 2 and 11,589 were administered prior to June 2.

The seven-day running average is now 20,109 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,232,799 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,615,840 first and second doses of Moderna and 145,844 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of today, 1,877,344 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 2,255,274 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, 2,830,725 doses of Pfizer, 2,156,360 doses of Moderna and 294,600 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.
