SALEM, Ore. — Oregon has reached a milestone two million people either partially or fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Oregon Health Authority reported on Wednesday.

The agency said that 2,006,179 Oregonians had received at least one shot. Just over 1.5 million were fully vaccinated.

CDC data indicates that Oregon vaccine providers have reached 49 percent of all Oregonians with at least one shot, though this percentage is not limited to the 16 and older group. Oregon ranks 21st in the nation for the percentage of total population who have received at least one dose, just over the national average of 46 percent.

“Based on our current trends, Oregon is on track to meet our goal of vaccinating 70 percent of adults by mid- to late-June,” said OHA Director Patrick Allen. “Thanks to all of our partners for helping us stay ahead of a virus that is circulating in our communities.”

Governor Kate Brown announced on Tuesday that most COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted when 70 percent of the 16 and older population has received at least one dose. Counties will be able to enter Lower Risk when their local rate hits 65 percent.

“We still have work to do but it’s encouraging to see so many local partners working to achieve parity in vaccination rates for communities of color," Allen continued. "The more people who have access to vaccines and choose to get vaccinated, the sooner we can end this pandemic and go back to doing the things we enjoy.”

Jackson County officials said on Wednesday that just under 46 percent of residents 16 and older have received at least a first dose. Preliminary data suggests that other southern Oregon counties are in a similar position or worse.

OHA reported 616 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, in addition to nine more deaths attributed to the virus. The latest fatalities bring Oregon's death toll to 2,558.
