(Salem, OR)  --  Oregon Governor Kate Brown says there is no national reserve of COVID-19 vaccines. Brown says she talked with General Gustav Perna, Chief Operating Officer of Operation Warp Speed, and he told her states will not be receiving increased shipments of vaccines from the national stockpile next week because there is no federal reserve of doses. Governor Brown calls it deception on a national scale.  At a press briefing Friday afternoon the Governor said previous plans to begin vaccines for everyone over 65 on January 23rd have now been adjusted. The new plan is those 80 and older will be able to get vaccinated starting February 8th.  Staggered vaccination dates for seniors 75 and older, 70 and older and over 65 will begin in the weeks following.
