The Vaccine Scheduler Portal is operational to allow eligible Oklahomans to schedule their COVID-19 vaccination. OSDH will provide an end-of-day update on progress following any media availability or press conferences.
If you weren’t able to attend today’s media availability with State Commissioner of Health Dr. Lance Frye and Deputy Commissioner Keith Reed click here to download the recording.
Updates as of 8 a.m. on Friday, February 5:
- 693,677 Oklahomans have registered through the portal to receive notifications on eligibility.
- Phase 1: 22,153
- Phase 2 (currently eligible groups): 398,761
- 157,514 appointments have been scheduled by Oklahomans eligible to receive the vaccine.
- More appointments will continue to be added throughout the week, so OSDH recommends that people continue checking the system on an ongoing basis.
- As of February 4, Oklahoma has administered over 500,000 COVID-19 vaccines.
- This includes over 100,000 Oklahomans who have completed the full vaccine series and received both doses.
- Over 40% of the 65+ population, who we’re focusing on in the current phase of the vaccine distribution plan, have received a vaccine.
- Since the first dose was administered 54 days ago, the state is now averaging almost 9,500 shots per day.
- This progress is thanks to the efforts of our partners: County health departments, pandemic providers, hospitals and LTC facilities, pharmacies and countless volunteers.
- Oklahoma has opted into the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program for COVID-19 vaccination. Beginning next week, Oklahomans may have the opportunity to schedule appointments with independent pharmacies.
- This program is a collaboration between the federal government, states and 21 national pharmacy partners and independent pharmacy networks to provide COVID-19 vaccine to eligible individuals.
- We are expecting to receive 11,300 doses next week for this program, which will be distributed to 73 independent pharmacies across the state.
- When the program begins, Oklahomans will be able to schedule vaccine appointments directly with their local pharmacy outside of the Vaccine Scheduler Portal if they choose to do so.
- It is important to note that, much like appointments scheduled through the portal, your local pharmacy may not have vaccines right away, or may have a very limited supply.
- Prevention efforts remain critical as Super Bowl Sunday approaches.
- Super Bowl Sunday is traditionally a time for us to gather with friends and family. We want to remind Oklahomans that the best way to keep your Super Bowl party small and safe this Sunday is by celebrating with your immediate household.
- If you do wish to celebrate with others outside of your immediate household, we recommend hosting a virtual or outdoor watch party, weather permitting.
- If you do plan to travel or gather, practice the 3 W’s: Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Watch your distance.
- As we move through the plan, many people are scheduling their second dose of the vaccine.
- Because there are a number of avenues for scheduling your vaccine appointment, including the vaccine portal, local providers and county health departments, the instructions you received about scheduling your second dose may vary.
- You can find Frequently Asked Questions with specific pathways for getting your second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at https://oklahoma.gov/covid19/vaccine-information/vaccine-faqs.html.
- Current priority groups that are eligible for vaccine appointments as part of Phase 2 of the vaccine plan:
- Healthcare workers
- Expanded healthcare worker group such as allied health fields and general outpatient health service (i.e. behavioral health, dentists)
- First responders
- Oklahomans aged 65+
- Healthcare workers
