Oregon’s vaccine rollout is still on track to inoculate more seniors this month after losing days to last weekend’s winter storm, Gov. Kate Brown said on Friday.
Six days after some 300,000 Oregonians lost power in a storm that blanketed the state in ice and snow over Presidents Day weekend, 69,000 are still waiting to turn their lights back on, Portland General Electric announced Friday morning.
The extreme weather also left 67,000 COVID-19 vaccines from Moderna stuck in Memphis, Tennessee, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) announced Friday. It also canned 10,000 vaccination appointments in Portland and shut down clinics across the state during the three-day weekend.
