Of that total, 304 were initial doses, 304 were second doses and 855 were third doses and booster doses. The remaining 1,210 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry March 14.

The seven-day running average is now 2,403 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 4,172,607 doses of Pfizer Comirnaty, 241,319 doses of Pfizer pediatric, 2,729,635 doses of Moderna and 269,559 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
