COVID Cases

Oregon's COVID-19 death toll reached 2,491 and the case count climbed by 928 to 183,830 as of Thursday, April 29.

There is one new COVID-19 related death in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,491, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) reported Thursday, April 29.

OHA also reported 928 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19, bringing the state total to 183,830.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA officials said 39,560 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 26,858 doses were administered on April 28 and 12,702 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on April 28.

The seven-day running average is now 35,429 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered a total of 1,564,698 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,274,713 first and second doses of Moderna and 93,723 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. As of today, 1,229,497 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series. There are 1,794,112 who have had at least one dose.

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, 1,864,395 doses of Pfizer, 1,581,100 doses of Moderna and 228,700 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change.
