Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, ODOC has partnered with Securus Technologies to provide inmates two free phone calls each week while visitation was suspended. With visitation reopening, these free phone calls will continue until April 15. After April 15, phone calls will still be permitted, subject to standard rates and policies.

ODOC offers free flu vaccines to inmates

Inmates receive flu shots
Friday, October 16, 2020

Oklahoma City - Oklahoma Department of Corrections (ODOC) is offering all inmates free flu vaccines at nearly every facility in anticipation of the upcoming flu season. While inmates can receive a flu shot year-round, today is part of an awareness campaign to ensure every inmate is presented the opportunity to participate. Participation is voluntary and the treatment is offered by injection.

Last year, more than 8,000 inmates rolled up their sleeves. ODOC staff hope to increase that by at least 15 percent this year.

Inmates at Mabel Bassett Correctional Center and Oklahoma State Penitentiary will be offered the vaccine next week.
