(Update: Adding death details)

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are 74 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 4,543, the Oregon Health Authority reported Thursday.

Central Oregon health departments said two of the newly reported deaths were from Deschutes County, raising its total to 138 deaths.

OHA also reported 1,211 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Thursday, bringing the state total to 371,001.

OHA releases new COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough report

OHA’s most recent update on COVID-19 breakthrough cases, released Thursday, found that 75.4% of the 8,239 reported COVID-19 cases between Oct. 24 and Oct. 30 occurred in unvaccinated people.

There were 2,025 breakthrough cases, accounting for 24.6% of all cases.

The average age of the breakthrough cases during that period was 47. Fifty breakthrough cases involved residents of care facilities, senior living communities or other congregate care settings. There were 66 cases in people ages 12 to 17.

To date, there have been 37,539 COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases in Oregon. The average age of all cases is 48. Breakthrough cases have been reported in all 36 counties.

Cases of COVID-19 are far more common in unvaccinated people, OHA stated. The report shows that the rate of COVID-19 in unvaccinated people is four times higher than in vaccinated people.

To date, 4.4% of all vaccine breakthrough cases have been hospitalized and 1% have died. The average age of vaccinated people who died was 80.

Vaccination remains the most effective tool to reduce the spread of COVID-19, OHA stated.

The number of vaccine breakthrough cases identified in Oregon remains very small, when compared to the more than 2.8 million Oregonians who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The latest breakthrough report can be found here.

Three vaccination data dashboards get updates

Three of OHA’s COVID-19 data dashboards have been updated to include more information on COVID-19 vaccinations among pediatric and young adult populations; race and ethnicity of more than 100,000 people previously grouped as “Other Race” or who had an unknown rarest race or ethnicity; and those who have received at least one dose of any COVID-19 vaccine, completed the primary vaccine series, and received at least one extra dose of any COVID-19 vaccine.

The updates are happening at the same time as the regular monthly pull of ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS) data, which means they are more accurate and reflect what’s in the live system.

New age groups to focus on pediatric and young adult populations on the Daily Vaccine UpdateVaccination Trends and Vaccination Metrics dashboards

As more adults get vaccinated and as the state’s focus moves to increasing vaccinations among younger populations, adult age groups will be consolidated on the Vaccination Metrics dashboard to better align with recent vaccination recommendations and guidelines.

New age groups will include 5-11, 12-17, 18-19, 20-49, 50-64 and 65+. Vaccination data can still be downloaded in more detailed adult age groups.

Administrations, allocations and deliveries of Pfizer pediatric doses are available on the Daily Vaccine Update dashboard. Pfizer pediatric doses will show up as “Unknown/Invalid” on the Daily Update dashboard until ALERT IIS is updated to recognize these doses as valid.

Supplemental rarest race and ethnicity data now included on Vaccination Trends and Metrics dashboards

OHA is now reporting data on the races and ethnicities of 100,000 people who received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose and who are from racial and ethnic backgrounds that were previously categorized as “other” or “unknown.”

The agency is collaborating with the All Payer All Claims Reporting Program to place nearly half of the 275,000 vaccinated individuals into more common race and ethnicity categories. The goal is to better to understand the effectiveness of the agency’s efforts to improve health equity by increasing vaccination among the state’s rarest race and ethnicity groups, using high-quality data from other agency resources.

The race and ethnicity data now include:

  • More than 2,700 people who identify as American Indian or Alaska Native.
  • More than 4,500 people who identify as Asian.
  • More than 6,500 people who identify as Black or African American.
  • More than 7,000 people who identify as Hispanic/Latino/a/x.
  • More than 1,200 people who identify as Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander.
  • More than 80,000 people who identify as white.

In the COVID-19 vaccination data, people grouped by rarest race and ethnicity are individuals who identify as multiple racial or ethnic identities. However, the method for grouping people by rarest race and ethnicity does not include a multiracial category.

They are assigned one race or ethnicity; whichever identity is most rare in Oregon.

The order from rarest to most common races and ethnicities for the vaccination data is: Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander, Black or African American, American Indian and Alaska Native, Asian, Hispanic or Latino/a/x, white, then Other Race.

This gives visibility to people who would normally be grouped as multiracial.

Oregon third and booster dose data published on Vaccination Metrics dashboard

Data on third and booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccines are now being reported together on the Vaccination Metrics dashboard, as extra doses people received beyond the primary vaccine series. Reporting of the new data is consistent with guidelines and recommendations for mixing and matching additional doses beyond the primary series.

Three new measures for vaccination are defined as:

  • The percentage of people who have initiated COVID-19 vaccination and have received at least one dose of any COVID-19 vaccine.
  • The percentage of people who have completed their primary series or have received one dose of Johnson & Johnson or two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines.
  • The percentage of people who have received an extra dose beyond their primary series of any COVID-19 vaccine.

The statewide, age, and race and ethnicity tabs will all be updated by demographic or county for each of those measures as well.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 532, which is five more than Wednesday. There are 123 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is seven more than Wednesday.

There are 65 available adult ICU beds out of 688 total (9% availability) and 280 available adult non-ICU beds out of 4,117 (7% availability).

Adult non-ICU beds available280 (7%)31(2%)19(3%)95(17%)30(7%)8(16%)49(12%)48(41%)

St. Charles Bend reported 59 COVID-19 patients early Thursday, seven of whom were in the ICU, with five on ventilators. None of the seven ICU patients are fully vaccinated, the hospital reported, and 40 of the 59 patients were not fully vaccinated.

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

OHA reported Thursday that 18,096 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry on Nov. 3. Of that total, 1,126 were initial doses, 840 were second doses and 9,798 were third doses and booster doses. The remaining 6,270 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Nov. 3.

The seven-day running average is now 17,085 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 3,323,667 doses of Pfizer Comirnaty, 2,039,930 doses of Moderna and 230,623 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of today, 2,825,299 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,618,874 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.

    1. Get the vaccine. Our 2 year old grandson came to stay with us and 2 out of 3 of us got Covid. Mom and daughter who were vaccinated had mild cases and yours truly escaped with his booster.

  1. Another long list of names- considering there are those here who insist that after vaccination- yer virus free- not a care in the world- simply won’t die from anything related to the CV19. This is why America led the planet in number of new cases 58k and came in second with the most number of new deaths- over 1000. There is no proof at all that these vaccines are saving lives- if that were true- how did Colin Powell die ? Let that sink in before responding.

    1. Tons of proof from medical experts that you ignore. Risk of serious illness/death is dramatically lowered, officials say –. NOT eliminated. No one ever claimed that would happen. Others say our numbers are high because of the fear that vaccine critics spread.
      Doubt you’d pass any test in school with your answers, as you don’t “show your work” (provide true proof of your claims). You’d give yourself an A, of course. But you don’t get to grade yourself.

          1. Never have I made a personal attack on you or any individual. I mock behaviors and insult political classes and Colonizers. I have disagreed with you and mocked your position on a topic but never have I made a personal attack. Asking if KTVZ hates Indians isn’t an attack, its an observation based on actions taken by the station and its employees.

            1. That’s a fine line, invisible to many. And your repeated racially-based comments about all whites/political parties wanting to “kill” Native Americans – you have called yourself a troll, and have lived down to it plenty. You know it, I know it. It’s offensive. You can claim the state hasn’t done enough etc., and it’ll never get deleted. But take it that far and yes, it gets offensive.

              1. Then I am sure my last post will be deleted. But sadly, Whites have proven my statements to be true many times and the refusal to revise Equity plans is another example of that.

                I am a troll and so what? That’s what these boards are for. if you want to control the narrative, make it private. Or if you want honest open debate, require people to use their real names. The real issue is no accountability anymore and the media leads the way in its rush to get content out there! Of course its offensive to the colonizers, so much guilt and it goes back so far…

                1. Hmmm. Facebook is proof that requiring real names doesn’t keep the mobs of haters at bay.
                  Trolls are not who these comment systems were created for. They just move in and knock everything over, do whatever they want and scream censorship! if they don’t get to say whatever they want.
                  Reddit, with its community moderation and fair rules firmly enforced by the mods, is home to many civil, productive conversations. The trolls get downvoted into invisibility. We may go that route, in an effort to save this system from the trashcan that most media outlets, even Fox News recently put them in. The danger of COVID misinformation and ridiculous amount of time it takes to fact-check or delete dangerous claims may have been the last nail in the coffin, but the extreme waste of time and dubious value of never-ending arguments that convince no one of anything… why would most people spend large amounts of time in it?

              2. And while I am at it, I know you are intelligent enough to know that what I say about the vax and the nonsense spouted by both political sides is just that; Nonsense! They each ant it their way but can’t accept the fact they are each side of the same coin. There is Zero difference between either side. And that includes the fact each side is shown by the data to be overwhelmingly vaxxed. Its POCs that are not.

                But I also get that this is a cathartic exercise for many. It must be hard balancing how much to let through and still drive traffic. After all, without traffic, this board goes away.

                1. It’s hard to extrapolate if this “board” draws more visitors than it repels. But it WILL change, or go away. It’s too big a waste of everyone’s time otherwise.

                2. DO IT! Please make the comments section go away so your company stops being the main source of covid/maga disinformation in Central Oregon. If we never heard from this guy or bghw or any of the rest of them it would be too soon.

                3. Ironic you suggest we do so here, in a comment. Have you ever been to Reddit? Is that a possible solution/progress to avoid shutting down the ability to comment on stories?
                  Or are you endorsing more frequent bans on the trolls who waste everyone’s time, especially mine?

  2. Enough Trumper Traitors! If you don’t want to get vaccinated fine, no one really cares any longer. Just make sure your affairs are in order just in case.

    1. Why do the White Dems and White Repubs keep up with the lies? The data is clear, Whites from any political pary in OR are vaxed! Yet the Dems lie and claim that Repubs aren’t vaxed and the Repubs lie and say the DEms are impeding on freedom. But all the Whites in OR are vaxed for the most part. Its the Populations of color that are not vaxed and its because both parties want us dead or too weak to fight back! The use of sterilization, killing our babies, refusing to revise Equity plans that don’t work and denying us therapies that work; these are examples both sides use! Beware the gift of a winter coat, socks or other items from these White Crips & Bloods in suits! We fell for those tricks 2 centuries ago and it almost wiped us out!

      1. OHA and the governor have laid out many efforts to get Indigenous/people of color treated equitably. You can say not enough, they failed, but it’s a major leap and pretty close to TOS offensive to say they ‘want you dead.’

      2. 1. White GOP Trumpers in Oregon are not mostly vaccinated, that is completely false.
        2. Were you raised to be racist, or did you decide that was the way to go?
        Don’t bother replying as I won’t argue with a racist.
