Kristin Chenoweth receives second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, urges fellow Oklahomans to join
Chenoweth discusses vaccine with Commissioner Frye in video of her second dose experience
OKLAHOMA CITY — Singer, actress and Oklahoma native Kristin Chenoweth recently joined State Commissioner of Health Dr. Lance Frye to discuss questions and concerns regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. The conversation, along with Chenoweth receiving her second dose, was featured in a video that was released today.
Chenoweth discussed her own decision to get the vaccine to protect herself and others, and urged her fellow Oklahomans to do the same.
“Today I have received my second vaccination,” said Chenoweth in the video. “My decision early on was that as soon as I could and it was safe and allowed, I would get the vaccination. One, do it for yourself so you can have peace of mind and heart and spirit; and then do it for others to stop the spread of COVID-19. God bless you all, stay safe and get the vaccine.”
As of April 20, over 2.5 million doses of the vaccine had been administered in the state, with 48% of the population 16+ receiving at least one dose, and 35% fully vaccinated.
The COVID-19 vaccine is available at no cost to anyone in Oklahoma over the age of 16. Those who are under 18 must have a parent or guardian present on site to give consent. For more information or to schedule an appointment, visit vaccinate.ok.gov.
