Oregon Reaches Vaccine Milestone:

The Oregon Health Authority Wednesday reports that at least 2 million Oregonians have now received at least one dose of a vaccine and over 1.5 million people are now fully vaccinated.

Oregon ranks 21st nationally with 49 percent of all Oregonians now with at least 1 shot.

“Based on our current trends, Oregon is on track to meet our goal of vaccinating 70% of adults by mid- to late-June,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen. “Thanks to all of our partners for helping us stay ahead of a virus that is circulating in our communities.”

“We still have work to do but it’s encouraging to see so many local partners working to achieve parity in vaccination rates for communities of color. The more people who have access to vaccines and choose to get vaccinated, the sooner we can end this pandemic and go back to doing the things we enjoy.”
