Abstract

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.

Our analysis shows that increasing numbers of Oregonians have chosen to get vaccinated. However, a significant urban/rural gap persists. The remainder of this report lays out the findings from our report, highlighting who is and is not getting vaccinated.
