The Oregon Health Authority on Sunday reported 628 new COVID-19 cases in the state but no new deaths from the disease.

Rising numbers of cases in recent weeks have been reported despite rising numbers of people getting vaccinated. On Monday, everyone over age 16 in Oregon will be eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccines: Oregon reported 32,287 newly administered doses -- 20,973 on Saturday and 11,314 on previous days but newly entered in the vaccine registry. Over the past week, the state has been averaging 34,359 doses per day.

The health authority reports that Oregon has administered 1.3 million first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine, 1.1 million first and second doses of the Moderna vaccine and 88,405 single doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been temporarily paused “out of an abundance of caution” because of rare but dangerous blood clots.

Where the new cases are by county: Baker (2), Clackamas (72), Clatsop (4), Columbia (7), Coos (7), Crook (2), Curry (2), Deschutes (47), Douglas (4), Grant (6), Harney (1), Hood River (1), Jackson (20), Jefferson (6), Josephine (9), Klamath (37), Lane (39), Lincoln (4), Linn (16), Malheur (1), Marion (83), Multnomah (142), Polk (11), Tillamook (1), Union (5), Wasco (2), Washington (83) and Yamhill (14).

Hospitalizations: 215 people with confirmed cases of COVID-19 are hospitalized, 15 more than on Saturday. 48 COVID-19 patients are in intensive care, one more than on Saturday.

Since it began: The official state tally of confirmed and presumptive cases since the pandemic began early last year now stands at 175,121 and 2,460 deaths.
