In a three-part series for Oregon Public Broadcasting, Jes Burns takes a look back at that state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Her stories in the series cover the state’s successful (by U.S. standards) response, which could make herd immunity take longer to reach, Oregon’s efforts to reduce racial disparities in COVID-19, and the problem of vaccine supply and demand and what that means for overcoming vaccine hesitancy.
