The Oregon Liquor Control Commission voted to adopt an executive order from Gov. Kate Brown banning sales of all flavored vaping products, including online sales, in the state.
The temporary ban will go into effect Tuesday, October 15, and continue until April 11, 2020.
The governor ordered a six-month ban last Friday and told state agencies to "immediately" pass emergency rules to ban the products.
Nine people in Oregon are confirmed to have a severe lung illness linked to vaping. Two of those people have died.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says at least 1,299 people across the country have been struck with lung illnesses connected to vaping and at least 26 have died.
Health officials do not know what is causing the illness. Medical tests have pointed to oils lodged in victims' lungs, while others have pointed to lung reactions typical of exposure to toxic chemicals.
The Oregon Health Authority urged Oregonians to stop using all vaping products until federal and state officials have determined the cause of the illnesses.
A similar ban in Washington went into effect Thursday. New York, Michigan and Rhode Island have also imposed temporary bans.
The OHA says additional components of vaping products could be banned in the future.
