Oregon hits another milestone: 1 million people vaccinated
Good news: More than 1 million Oregonians have now gotten at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, theOregon Health Authority announced today.
Eligible residents in every county have been vaccinated, as Oregon continues to make steady progress in ensuring all Oregonians who wish to be vaccinated have that opportunity. Here are some key statistics:
The counties showing the highest vaccination rates as of today are Baker and Wheeler counties, which have recorded 4,999 and 3,595 vaccinations per 10,000 residents respectively.
Data show that 210,194 residents in Multnomah County and 130,021 in Washington County have received at least one vaccine dose.
The highest number of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered on a single day was Feb. 26, with 35,582 doses administered.
As of today, 1,245 providers are enrolled with the state to receive and administer COVID-19 vaccines, though not every enrolled provider has received or administered COVID-19 vaccine doses to date.
OHA reports more than 62% of Oregonians age 65 and older have now been vaccinated.
The state is on track to vaccinate more than seven out of 10 Oregonians who are 65 and older by March 29, which is the next date that new groups become eligible statewide.
As Oregon continues its vaccine rollout, please keep taking protective measures to help keep yourselves, your families, coworkers, loved ones, friends and communities safe and healthy.
