MEDFORD, Ore-- According to data collected by the Oregon Health Authority, vaccination rates are continuing to decrease even after Governor Kate Brown's announced, on May 21, that Oregonians now have a chance to win a million dollars if they get vaccinated by June 27.

As of Saturday, the seven-day running average of vaccinations is at a little more than 27,000 doses per day, which is about a 16,000 dose decrease compared to late April, when vaccinations were at its highest peak.

And in Jackson County, vaccination doses this week have decreased by more than 20% compared to the week before Gov. Brown's announcement. But according Jackson County Public Health Director, Dr. Jim Shames, this was expected.

"Remember the whole reason for this program is that we've kind of picked the low hanging fruit already when it comes to vaccinations," said Dr. Shames.

Even with the vaccination rate slowing down down across the state, more and more people are still getting their first and second doses of a coronavirus vaccine.

Today OHA reported that 31,325 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 15,280 doses were administered on May 28 and 16,045 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on May 28.

Jackson County has also surpassed more than 94,000 people vaccinated with at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine and almost 80,000 are fully vaccinated.

OHA data also shows that Jackson County has vaccinated about 42% of its total population with at least one dose. But, Dr. Shames says that when it comes to Gov Brown's goal, of vaccinating Oregonians 16 years and older, Jackson County is about 50% complete.

Josephine County has vaccinated about 36% of its population, Klamath County has vaccinated about 36%, Lake County has vaccinated about 29% and Curry County has vaccinated about 45% of its population.
