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.

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. 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 10,086 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry on Nov. 14. Of that total, 2,432 were initial doses, 201 were second doses and 3,729 were third doses and booster doses. The remaining 3,700 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Nov. 14.

The seven-day running average is now 16,421 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 3,438,809 doses of Pfizer Comirnaty, 31,186 doses of Pfizer pediatric, 2,130,605 doses of Moderna and 236,012 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of today, 2,879,298 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,635,155 people 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.

Due to a technical issue that affected the electronic laboratory reporting (ELR) server, COVID-19 test counts and percent positivity for Nov. 13 and Nov. 14 are currently unavailable. Case counts from the weekend are accurate as local health departments were able to process positive ELRs received over the weekend. We anticipate that the server issue will be resolved today; however, data dashboards will not be updated with test counts and percent positivity until tomorrow.
