The Oregon Health Authority reported 441 new cases of COVID-19 in the state on Wednesday. That brings the total cases to 165,012.

OHA also reported two new deaths related to the virus that brings the death toll to 2,383.

The agency also announced individuals who entered their primary or preferred contact as a landline in the Get Vaccinated Oregon tool could receive a call as early as Wednesday from staff at 211info.

Approximately 500 people registered with GVO with a landline as their primary or preferred contact. Some of these individuals also listed a cell or email contact and may have already been contacted for vaccine appointments.

Landline registration was discontinued in the Get Vaccinated Oregon tool in response to concerns from partners about having the state create automated calls.

People receiving calls will see the number 503-416-2702 on their caller ID. Callers will also identify themselves as calling from 211info on behalf of OHA.
