The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between reporting times. The figures do not reflect admissions per day, nor length of hospital stay. Staffing restrictions are not recorded in this data and may further limit bed capacity.

Note: Please do not visit an emergency room for COVID-19 testing unless you need emergency care for your symptoms.

Emergency departments in Oregon are under a lot of pressure due to the current wave of COVID-19. You will find a test here.

If you have a medical condition that does not require emergency care, talk to your provider. An emergency center can also help you get the care you need and will save emergency rooms from adding extra strain.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported on Tuesday that 15,055 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the national vaccination register on Monday.

Of that total, 8,254 were administered that day. There were 430 initial doses; 330 second doses and 1821 third and booster doses. The remaining 6,801 doses were administered on previous days, but were entered into the vaccine registry on Monday.

The seven-day running average is now 15,515 doses per day.

Oregon has now delivered 3,356,184 doses of Pfizer Comirnaty, 6,041 doses of Pfizer pediatric, 2,083,433 doses of Moderna, and 233,216 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of Tuesday, 2,841,318 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,626,471 people have completed a series of COVID-19 vaccines.

This information is provisional and subject to change.

Updated vaccination data is provided on Oregon’s COVID-19 data dashboards and was updated Tuesday.

Monthly data refresh on the health workforce dashboard now available

For the November refresh, the Health Care Workforce (HCW) COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake dashboard includes data through November 1.

The visualization “There are differences in vaccination rates between licensee types” in the Licenses tab of the dashboard now contains a “Series Complete” vaccination rate statistic.

This is defined as the percentage of people who have completed their primary vaccination course, ie received one dose of Johnson & Johnson, two doses of Moderna or two doses of Pfizer. In general, there is only a 3% – 5% decrease in vaccination rates when comparing “1+ dose” (i.e. the percentage of people who have started COVID-19 vaccination and at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine vaccine) with “Series complete”.

Remark: The healthcare uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine dashboard does not represent the HCW population to be vaccinated under the mandate announced on August 10.

Whether a healthcare provider falls under the vaccination mandate may vary by licensing authority and type based on various circumstances or factors. OHA does not have specific data on the proportion of health professionals covered by the mandate.
