PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — There are two new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, including Crook County’s 24th death, raising the state’s death toll to 2,792, the Oregon Health Authority reported Friday.

OHA also reported 265 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 210,229.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Friday that 6,920 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 3,280 doses were administered on Thursday and 3,640 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Thursday.

The seven-day running average is now 5,335 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,568,978 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,753,885 first and second doses of Moderna and 172,716 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of Friday, 2,423,996 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,222,166 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, 2,968,245 doses of Pfizer, 2,258,400 doses of Moderna and 299,100 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change.

Updated vaccination data are provided on Oregon’s COVID-19 data dashboards and have been updated Friday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 99, which is one fewer than Thursday and the lowest number OHA has reported since Sept. 14, 2020. There are 26 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is two fewer than Thursday.
