No matter where you look, vaccines lower your risk for infection and especially for serious consequences of infection

And Oregon is the latest example of why you want to get vaccinated.

From Oregon’s weekly summary this week:

Cases of COVID-19 are much more common in unvaccinated Oregonians than in vaccinated

The rate of COVID-19 cases among unvaccinated individuals in the most recent week was approximately six times the rate of COVID-19 cases among fully vaccinated individuals.

Community spread remains elevated throughout the state and is particularly high in areas with lower vaccination rates.

And the most important sentence: Vaccination remains the most effective tool to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
