(Update: OHA releases details of deaths, including Deschutes County’s 33rd)

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — There are 21 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, including a Deschutes County resident, raising the state’s death toll to 1,758, along with 1,037 new cases, the Oregon Health Authority reported Friday.

Deschutes County’s 33rd death was an 83-year-old man who tested positive on Jan. 4 and died at his home nine days later. He had underlying conditions, OHA said. Learn more at Deschutes County’s COVID-19 dashboard.

OHA also reported 1,037 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 131,258.

Vaccinations in Oregon

On Friday, the Oregon Health Authority reported that 26,936 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 10,618 vaccine doses were administered on Thursday and 16,318 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry Thursday.

Based on updated totals, the Oregon Health Authority is meeting Gov. Kate Brown’s goal of ensuring 12,000 vaccinations a day. The governor required the benchmark to be met by the end of the two-week period that began Jan. 4.

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 said. The Oregon Health Authority 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).

Oregon has now administered a cumulative total of 173,073 first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccines. All vaccinations were administered by Oregon hospitals, long-term care facilities, emergency medical service (EMS) agencies, urgent care facilities and Local Public Health Authorities (LPHAs).

To date, 326,300 doses of vaccine have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change. OHA’s dashboards provide regularly updated vaccination data.

St. Charles Health System reported it had given 6,264 Pfizer BioNTech vaccinations by early Friday. It also told NewsChannel 21 68% of caregivers have been vaccinated.
