On July 2, OHA announced that Oregon had officially reached the 70% statewide vaccination goal.
“The 70% adult vaccination goal means we have a better chance to sustain a safe reopening,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen. “The safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines continue to drive down new cases, hospitalizations and deaths in our state. Thank you to everyone who’s been vaccinated and everyone who helped administer these life-saving vaccines.”
While reaching this milestone is a step forward in creating a safer Oregon, Director Allen also reminded folks that the pandemic isn’t over.
“It’s our goal to vaccinate eight in 10 people across Oregon, particularly adults in communities of color and other under-vaccinated groups,” said Director Allen.
