OHA reported that 6,980 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 3,548 doses were administered on Aug. 5 and 3,432 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Aug. 5.

The seven-day running average is now 5,210 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,683,362 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,794,451 first and second doses of Moderna and 184,170 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of today, 2,512,046 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,325,446 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.

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, 3,041,595 doses of Pfizer, 2,318,420 doses of Moderna and 299,100 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.
