Increasing numbers of Oregonians are choosing to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Most Oregonians know someone who had COVID-19 and 44 percent know someone who died. Yet, a significant percentage of Oregonians continue to dismiss the risks associated with COVID-19 which could risk the progress seen in combatting the pandemic over the last 12 months.
