OHA long-term care facility report shows 84% of residents, 62% of staff vaccinated against COVID-19

A new Oregon Health Authority (OHA) report shows that the state’s push to vaccinate at least 75% of all long-term care facility residents and employees — through vaccine clinics and ongoing vaccination maintenance efforts — is paying off.

The Oregon Health Authority Interim Long-Term Care Facility (LTCF) COVID-19 Vaccination Report shows that the percentage of vaccinated residents among reporting long-term care facilities exceeds the state’s 75% target for COVID-19 vaccination. It summarizes vaccination data voluntarily reported by 62% of Oregon’s licensed nursing, residential care and assisted living facilities that serve older adults and people with disabilities.
