Oregon has administered a total of 270,453 first and second doses of vaccines, including 16,763 new doses added to the state immunization registry on Friday. A total of 487,700 doses have been sent to Oregon.

OHA said those who have received both doses of the vaccine do not have to quarantine if they’ve been in contact with someone who has the virus. However, those who are fully immunized should still monitor themselves for symptoms during the 14 days after they were exposed. If symptoms develop, they should isolate and seek testing. People who have had both shots should still follow health safety measures, including keeping six feet of distance and wearing a mask, according to OHA.
