PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) — There are 14 new COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon over the weekend, including one each in Crook and Jefferson counties, raising the state’s death toll to 2,949, the Oregon Health Authority reported Monday. 

OHA also reported 4,396 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Monday, bringing the state total to 242,843.

The 4,396 cases reported Monday include new infections recorded by counties for the 3-day period between Friday, Aug. 13th and Sunday, Aug.15th.

FDA, CDC and Western States recommend additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine to immunocompromised individuals

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup have all recommended an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine be administered to people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems. 

“This official CDC recommendation — which follows FDA’s decision to amend the emergency use authorizations of the vaccines — is an important step in ensuring everyone, including those most vulnerable to COVID-19, can get as much protection as possible from COVID-19 vaccination,” said CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky, MD, MPH in an Aug. 13 media statement.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Monday that 3,013 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 472 were initial doses and 279 were second doses administered on Sunday. The remaining 2,194 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Sunday.

The seven-day running average is now 5,923 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,724,171 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,810,218 first and second doses of Moderna and 189,610 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of Monday, 2,553,384 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,351,758 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.

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).

These data are preliminary and subject to change.

Updated vaccination data are provided on Oregon’s COVID-19 data dashboards and have been updated MOnday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 752, which is nine more than Sunday. There are 206 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is 11 more than Sunday.

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.

St. Charles Bend reported 46 COVID-19 patients as of early Monday, seven of whom were in the ICU, all on ventilators. While the highest patient count in recent weeks, the hospital did have more than 60 COVID-19 patients earlier in the pandemic.
