PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are two new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,208, the Oregon Health Authority reported Saturday.
OHA also reported 455 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state total to 155,315.
Vaccinations in Oregon
OHA reported that 32,288 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added Saturday to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 24,926 doses were administered on Friday and 7,362 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Friday.
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 943,692 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 1,194,495 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 Saturday.
The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 148, which is four fewer than Friday. There are 31 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is three fewer than Friday.
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.
