EUGENE, Ore. -- Lane County Public Health is getting 100 doses of the Moderna vaccine, falling far short of what officials expected.

Incident Commander Steve Adams said after conversations with the Oregon Health Authority, they were expecting nearly 1,500 doses of the vaccine. The county has already gotten 1,200 doses of the Moderna vaccine over the past two weeks. Adams said he and others have been on the phone with OHA, trying to understand why a county of more than 340,000 people is getting such a small shipment.

"They've indicated that the differences are accounted for by allocations week by week," Adams said. "Some of the smaller counties might not have received allocations as high as ours in the past."

Here's how many doses of the Moderna vaccine each county in Western Oregon is getting this week:

  • Benton: 100
  • Coos: 100
  • Douglas: 500
  • Lane: 100
  • Linn: 100.

Other agencies in Oregon are also getting more of the Pfizer vaccine. RiverBend in Springfield is getting 3,900 doses and Mercy Medical in Roseburg will be getting 975 doses.

Adams said Lane County Public Health is working to try and get Moderna doses from OHA.
