On January 5, Oregon Governor Kate Brown directed the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to achieve the benchmark of 12,000 vaccinations administered in Oregon per day by the end of the next two weeks.
Based on updated totals, the OHA has announced that vaccination sites across the state met Governor Kate Brown’s goal at the end of last week.
“While we hit the Governor’s goal of hitting 12,000 vaccines administered in a day last week,” OHA Director Patrick Allen said in a press release, “we want to sustain and expand our daily totals. The state can’t achieve our goal to deliver vaccinations quickly, efficiently, and equitably all on our own. I’m grateful for the hard work that staff in hospitals, local health clinics and other sites have put into ramping up vaccinations for Oregonians. Vaccines are the safest and most effective way we can end this pandemic.”
In Oregon, Vaccine providers administered 12,039 total doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines on January 8, 2021.
