Covid-19 Vaccine Updates in Oklahoma
Oklahoma is planning out its Covid vaccine distribution sites as the city moves to phase 2 according to an ABC 5 KOCO news article from December 30th. In it they say:
“Oklahoma State Department of Health officials said they’re finalizing plans for how they’ll distribute the COVID-19 vaccine when it is available for some members of the public in the next few weeks.The department will have what they’re calling vaccine pods scattered across the state. Those pods could be places such as schools, community centers and, possibly, the state fairgrounds. Authorities need a lot of space to make this happen. In the next few weeks, those pods will open for people who are 65 and older, first responders and health care workers outside the hospital setting.”
On New Year’s Eve, First Responders and Healthcare Workers in Oklahoma were given the opportunity to sign up and get their shots at two locations according to a Fox 25 article from December 30th. In it they say:
“Healthcare workers and First Responders are able to sign up now to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at two Oklahoma locations. Two sites will be set up on Thursday December 31, 2020 in Enid and Yukon. Both sites say the events are short notice, but sign-up for the events ends on December 30, at 5:00 PM.”
With the nasty cold weather and other trials the city has been going through, the arrival of the vaccine is a welcomed affair.
