COVID-19 has claimed 10 more lives in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 1,568, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 7. 

Oregon Health Authority reported 867 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m., bringing the state total to 121,085.

Thursday's case count is lower than anticipated because of technical issues.

Vaccinations in Oregon

On Jan. 7, OHA recorded 5,249 doses of vaccine administered — including 995 second doses — raising the state's total number of doses administered to 66,920. This figure is based on preliminary reports of 3,429 doses administered yesterday, as well as 1,820 doses administered on prior days that had not been recorded. OHA's daily media updates provide information that is preliminary and subject to change. The OHA's dashboards provide more updated vaccination data.

All vaccinations occurred at Oregon hospitals, long-term care facilities, emergency medical service (EMS) agencies, urgent care facilities and Local Public Health Authorities (LPHAs).

To date, 250,100 doses of vaccine have been delivered to sites across Oregon.
