Concerns raised by organization representing healthcare systems in Oregon about availability of COVID-19 vaccine before anticipated priority group expansion "factually incorrect," a representative for the Governor Kate Brown said Friday.

Other school staff are increasing the demand for vaccines far beyond the supply available in some areas,” Hultberg initiated a statement, saying that some medical systems may be able to meet the demand for dosage. Others have added that they are less likely to do so.

 "Educators can be vaccinated quickly by district. You can, "Brown said. "This choice reflects the immediate action that will have the greatest impact on Oregon children. "
