News Release
Oregon reports 1,643 new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases, 28 new deaths. Oregon adds 13,448 new COVID-19 vaccinations to statewide total - 01/09/21

PORTLAND, Ore. — COVID-19 has claimed 28 more lives in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 1,603 the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. today.

State health officials also added 13,448 new vaccinations to the state’s total.

In addition, state health officials have updated the December 30 Weekly Report to correct a reporting error.

Vaccinations in Oregon

Yesterday, 13,448 new doses were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 8,768 vaccine doses were administered on January 8th and 4,680 were administered on previous days (but entered into the state registry by providers on January 8th). As of yesterday, vaccination sites had administered 34 percent of Oregon’s current allocation of vaccine doses.

Oregon’s cumulative total is now 88,362 first and second doses administered. All vaccinations occurred at Oregon hospitals, long-term care facilities, emergency medical service (EMS) agencies, urgent care facilities and Local Public Health Authorities (LPHAs).

These data are preliminary and subject to change. OHA's dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data, however the dashboard will not be updated today.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 421, which is 30 fewer than yesterday. There are 81 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is seven fewer than yesterday.

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.

More information about hospital capacity can be found here.
