Underlying conditions.

It is stated how many doses have been delivered, but there is no break down of how many of those doses were the first dose and how many were the second dose.

It would also be nice to know what parts of Oregon the doses went to, if only to see whether people outside of Portland/Willamette Valley are receiving the same chance to be vaccinated.

Propaganda to control the population and make citizens totally dependent on the government. Socialism 101.

It totally amazes me that they claim to want to vaccinate the elderly first but people are getting the first and second shot while over here in Union county we haven't seen the first shot. So what gives.
