OHA Announces New COVID-19 Vaccination Goal

(Portland, OR)  --  The Oregon Health Authority is changing its COVID-19 vaccination goal.  After Oregon achieved its goal of a 70-percent vaccination rate for people 18 and older, the new goal targets tribal communities and communities of color.  Health officials say they want 80-percent of that group to get vaccinated.  Currently, their rate is around 45-percent.  OHA will direct vaccination efforts to both rural and urban areas that'll have a higher impact on communities of color.
