PORTLAND, Ore. — There is one new COVID-19 related death in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,024, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.
Oregon Health Authority reported 305 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today, bringing the state total to 147,419.
Vaccinations in Oregon
Today, OHA reported that 18,255 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 10,515 doses were administered on Feb. 7 and 7,740 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Feb. 7.
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).
Oregon has now administered a cumulative total of 572,400 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 734,950 doses of vaccine have been delivered to sites across Oregon.
These data are preliminary and subject to change. OHA’s dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data, and Oregon’s dashboard has been updated today.
The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 221, which is nine fewer than yesterday. There are 55 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is two more than yesterday.
The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.
