Oregon reports no new COVID-19 deaths, 324 new cases

PORTLAND, Pray. (KTVZ) – There are no new COVID-19-related deaths in Oregon, keeping the death toll in the state at 2,155, the Oregon Health Authority reported Monday.

The Oregon Health Authority reported 324 new confirmed and suspected COVID-19 cases as of 12:01 a.m. Monday, bringing the statewide total to 153,134.

Vaccinations in Oregon

The OHA reported that 18,907 new doses of COVID-19 vaccines were added to the state immunization registry on Monday. Of this total, 13,790 doses were administered on Sunday and 5,117 were administered the previous days but were entered into the vaccination registry on Sunday.

Cumulative daily totals can take several days to complete because providers have 72 hours to report delivered doses and technical challenges have caused many providers to fall behind on their reports. OHA has been providing technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).

Oregon has now administered a cumulative total of 821,311 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. To date, 924,575 doses of vaccine have been delivered to sites throughout Oregon.

These data are preliminary and are subject to change.

St. Charles Health System reported 23,292 COVID-19 vaccines administered as of early Monday morning.

OHA dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data, and the Oregon dashboard was updated Monday.
