Note: Please do not visit an emergency department for COVID-19 testing, unless you require emergency care for your symptoms.
Emergency departments in Oregon are under significant strain responding to the current surge in COVID-19. You can find a test here.
If you have a medical condition that doesn’t require emergency care, contact your provider. An urgent care center may also help you get the care you need and will save emergency departments from added strain.
Vaccinations in Oregon
Today, OHA reported that 15,055 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry on Nov. 8.
Of that total, 8,254 were administered that day. There were 430 initial doses; 330 second doses and 1,821 third and booster doses. The remaining 6,801 doses were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Nov. 8.
The seven-day running average is now 15,515 doses per day.
Oregon has now administered 3,356,184 doses of Pfizer Comirnaty, 6,041 doses of Pfizer pediatric, 2,083,433 doses of Moderna and 233,216 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
As of today,2,841,318 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,626,471people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.
These data are preliminary and subject to change.
Updated vaccination data are provided on Oregon’s COVID-19 data dashboards and have been updated today.
Health Care Workforce dashboard monthly data refresh now available
For the November refresh, the Health Care Workforce (HCW) COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake dashboard includes data up to Nov. 1.
The “Differences Exist in Vaccination Rates among Licensee Types” visualization on the Licenses tab of the dashboard now contains a “Series Complete” Vaccination Rate statistic.
This is defined as the proportion of people who have completed their primary vaccination series, i.e., have received one dose of Johnson & Johnson, two doses of Moderna or two doses of Pfizer. Overall, there is only about a 3% - 5% decrease in vaccination rates when comparing “1+ Dose” (i.e., the proportion of people who initiated COVID-19 vaccination and have received at least one dose of any COVID-19 vaccine) with “Series Complete.”
Note: The Health Care Workforce COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake dashboard does not represent the HCW population that needs to be vaccinated under the mandate announced on Aug. 10.
Whether a health care worker falls under the vaccination mandate can vary among license boards and types based on various circumstances or factors. OHA does not have specific data on the proportion of health care workers subject to the mandate.
