About the Vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine goes through a strict testing and approval process before it can be administered to Oklahomans.


As part of the preparation process for the arrival of a COVID-19 vaccine, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) required each state to put together a comprehensive plan describing what the implementation of the new vaccine may look like for their jurisdiction. The plan outlined here is a draft for Oklahoma that was submitted to the CDC on October 16. This plan will be updated pending any feedback from the CDC in the coming weeks.

Attention: Eligible customers can schedule a vaccine appointment via the Walmart, Sam’s Club or Walgreens websites once appointments are available. Vaccines will be available to those who meet the current phase of vaccine eligibility in Oklahoma.

Vaccine Scheduling Tool for Oklahoma County Residents

The Oklahoma City-County Health Department has launched VaxOKC.com, a new website to schedule local COVID-19 vaccine appointments for Oklahoma County residents.

The Vaccine Scheduler Portal is an online scheduling tool to help Oklahomans determine when they are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and help them schedule an appointment when it is their turn.
