Total Central Oregon COVID-19 Vaccination data by County:
  • 2,498 series in progress with 3,110 fully vaccinated in Crook County.

Today, OHA reported that 31,616 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry.

Of this total, 14,312 doses were administered on March 29 and 17,304 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on March 29.

Oregon has now administered a total of 893,462 first and second doses of Pfizer, 833,973 first and second doses of Moderna and 39,698 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

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, 1,130,805 doses of Pfizer, 1,081,900 doses of Moderna and 86,900 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines 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.
