MEDFORD, Ore. —Jackson County Public Health reports 38 new COVID-19 cases Saturday. Additionally, 1 previously reported case were removed from the total COVID-19 cases. These updates bring the total COVID-19 cases to 8,115.

Jackson County Public Health reports 1 new COVID-19 death, bringing the total to 108 since the beginning of the pandemic.

Jackson County's 108th COVID-19 death is an 86-year-old man who tested positive on January 23 and died on February 7 at his residence. He had underlying health conditions.

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 in Region 5 (Jackson and Josephine Counties) is 24, increasing by 2 from the previous day. There are 7 patients in the intensive care unit (ICU), increasing by 3 from the previous day.

Jackson County Public Health says currently, the federal COVID-19 vaccine supply chain is scarce, impacting the vaccine supply in Jackson County. With the short supply and high demand,  more seniors will want to get vaccinated than there will be vaccines available to them in the coming weeks.

This means that every older adult will not be able to get an appointment as soon as they want one, even if they are currently eligible per the state's prioritization.

Jackson County Public Health is encourages by the number of people wanting to be vaccinated, and  are all eager to provide the vaccine. They appreciate the community's patience saying  "we are all doing the best we can – as fast as we can – with the available resources we have." 

Jackson County Public Health encourages these resources on vaccine eligibility and where to access the vaccine:
