Oregon updates vaccine waste disclosure1,2,3
In Oregon, OHA recognizes that as we create more opportunities to vaccinate more people, we also increase the likelihood of leaving unused doses in a vial.
While OHA and the state’s vaccine providers continue to follow best practices to use every dose possible, we do not want that to be at the expense of missing an opportunity to vaccinate every eligible person when they are ready to get vaccinated.
Learn more about OHA’s strategies for minimizing vaccine waste on our COVID-19 vaccine provider resources webpage. OHA reports updates on vaccines not being used each Tuesday in our daily media release and on our Covid-19 vaccine webpage.
