Oregon makes progress toward goal of 1 million people boosted before February

On Dec. 17, Governor Kate Brown announced a goal of getting 1 million more Oregonians a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by the end of January as the state prepares to confront a projected surge in cases from the Omicron variant.

When the challenge started on Dec. 17, 949,749 people had received a booster dose. Since then, an additional 145,346 Oregonians have received a booster. As of Monday, Oregon needs 854,654 people to get a booster to reach the goal and make our state safer from the Omicron variant, OHA said. Find a booster here.

Vaccine and booster shots available at multiple locations

Last Thursday, OHA announced four new high-volume vaccine centers to provide easy access to COVID-19 vaccine and booster shots. All of the high-volume sites offer all three COVID-19 vaccines, boosters and pediatric doses and can accommodate large numbers of people seeking vaccinations. Many expanded services over the holiday season.
