The Oregon Health Authority reported 1,610 new confirmed or suspected coronavirus cases and 16 more deaths on Friday.

Governor Kate Brown has expressed optimism as several vaccines appear to be on the verge of federal approval, although she warned that widespread vaccine distribution was likely still months away.

Brown said the state expected to receive 147,000 doses of the vaccine by the end of the month, but that the first round would go to healthcare providers and people most at risk of contracting the virus. The state would need to see about 10,000 vaccinations per day to achieve an acceptable level of immunity against the virus, which would require vaccinating 70% of adults.

“We have a proven, efficient and reliable system for distributing vaccines through a large network of health care providers, health systems, local public health programs, tribes and not-for-profit organizations.” , she said. “Until we can achieve community immunity levels, we must all stay the course and continue to practice the safety measures that we know can impact and stop the spread of this virus. “
